- Can I still receive compensation if I was at-fault for the accident?
- How do I get money if I was hurt in a hit-and-run accident?
If the accident is considered to be mostly your fault, it’s difficult for you to get compensation. However, many drivers believe they were 100 percent at fault for accidents, but investigations later prove that their level of liability was much less than the other driver—and that means they were still eligible to file claims for compensation. That means that even if you think you’re responsible for causing the accident, our legal team can review the facts of your claim and determine if the other driver also may have been at fault or could have been the sole party at fault.
Hit-and-run accidents are difficult when it comes to pursuing compensation as the other driver’s identity may be unknown. However, we go the extra mile for our clients and do our part in trying to identify the suspect by interviewing accident witnesses and analyzing evidence from the scene. If the suspect is found, you have multiple options for receiving compensation:
- Economic damages
These damages consist of compensation for things like lost wages, medical bills, physical therapy, and money to repair or replace your damaged vehicle.
- Non-economic damages
These damages consist of compensation for suffering caused by the accident, including pain, reduced quality of life, mental anguish, and disfigurement.
- Punitive damages
These damages are awarded to victims as a way to punish the person who inflicted the harm and deter others from engaging in such behavior. Punitive damages are often reserved for only extreme cases of negligence with intention to do harm.
