Hit And Run Accident Lawyer: Uninsured Drivers


If you're the victim of a hit-and-run accident, particularly when you're seriously injured, the process can be overwhelming and frightening. A hit-and-run accident lawyer can make sure that you get the justice and compensation you need to recover from the trauma of the event.

Here are some steps to take when the perpetrator of the hit and run accident is uninsured.


Getting your bills covered before you're able to collect restitution can be scary. Because the perpetrator of the hit and run accident isn't insured, you'll need to work with your auto insurance company, your health insurance company, and several medical providers to rebuild your life.

  • Auto Insurance: A hit-and-run lawyer can negotiate terms with your auto insurance provider to temporarily suspend your deductible payment until after your case is settled in court. This will mean that you can get your automobile repaired or replaced without having to pay your deductible. Many of the best hit and run lawyers will negotiate these terms with the stipulation that if they are not able to recover damages then they will pay your deductible for you. Before making an agreement with a hit and run accident it's always good to go over the terms of their representation. If a hit-and-run accident lawyer isn't willing to represent you without having some financial risk at stake, they might leave you hanging with a sizable collection of bills if they can't recover damages.
  • Health Insurance and Medical Provider: Similar to your auto insurer, your hit-and-run lawyer can negotiate to have your deductible payments suspended until your case has been adjudicated. If your hit-and-run accident lawyer is able to negotiate a suspension of your deductible payments, it's critical to ensure that they do not send your bills to collection if your case gets delayed. Many hit-and-run accident lawyers work with accountants to make sure their clients are financially protected in the interim between the accident and the settlement payment.


Hit and run accidents include both criminal and civil cases. Although most clients wait for the criminal case to be settled before filing a civil lawsuit, making this decision can mean smaller settlements and a longer wait before you're able to collect.

  • Accountability: Lawyers are focused on holding anyone with liability in the case accountable for their role in the event. This can mean filing a civil lawsuit against other individuals and/or entities with a role in the accident long before the criminal case is decided.

Accident Victims Must Stick Together

When I was injured in a slip and fall accident a few years ago, my family and friends had a hard time relating to the things I was going through. While some people thought that my decision to file a lawsuit was frivolous, others were under the impression that I would walk away as a millionaire. Their lack of personal experience with this type of legal problem left me feeling alone during one of the most difficult times in my life. That is why I decided to start this blog so that accident victims from all over would have somewhere to come to get the information and support that they need. I truly hope that this page can be that place for you.
