Sorry, but we do not represent victims of hit & run accidentsRead Google Reviews
We understand how you feel, so let's face it... you made a mistake in not stopping and exchanging information and you're trying to figure out what to do next. You're stress level is through the roof and you're confused. You don't want to do the wrong thing. These are all common feelings and emotions our clients have.
Tip #1 - Don't be so overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty that you become immobilized and do nothing. We are all human and make mistakes. Your next moves are critical and can dramatically affect the outcome of your case.
Tip #2 - Taking immediate action and being proactive can make you look much better by contacting the police before they contact you. We do this everyday for our clients.
Tip #3 - In almost every hit and run accident, cooperation creates a much better environment for our clients to get favorable treatment in the eyes of the law and with the other party involved in the accident.
Tip #4 - The facts and circumstances of every accident are different and so are the ways each police department handles these cases.
Tip #5 - Don't underestimate the power of having a hit and run specialist protect you and fight to prevent hit and run charges from being filed against you. The result can help you avoid the expense and stress of a court case.
Tip #6 - It is never a good idea to turn yourself into the police station (no matter how guilty you feel) without knowing about the real facts of the accident. Avoiding being arrested is always an advantage... we can help you by negotiating with the police to avoid this from happening and save you this very unpleasant experience.
Tip #7 - Don't call the police when you have left the scene of an accident without exchanging information or without consulting an attorney. If the police come to your home or work, don't agree to speak to them without your lawyer being present.
Tip #8 - Don't make your situation worse by making false statements to the police or your insurance company (like my car was stolen, when it wasn't). If you have already done this... we can help correct these mistakes to avoid more trouble for you.
Tip #9 - Honesty may or may not, be the best thing for you to do without knowing more about the facts of the case including "has anyone identified you or your vehicle". Be cautious, all statements made to the police by you can be used against you. Before making a statement to the police, know your options and have a strategy to put you in the best light.
Tip #10 - Typically the police will not tell you what evidence they have before they interview you, but they will usually tell your lawyer. This creates a major advantage for you.
Tip #11 - If you have received a letter from the police or a notice from the court to appear, it is advisable to consult an attorney immediately before taking any action.
Tip #12 - If a court case has already been filed against you, we can still fight to have all charges dismissed through a civil compromise with the other party. The result will avoid all penalties or tarnish your good record in anyway.
Tip #13 - It is in your best interest to understand the facts of your case from both sides prior to filing an insurance claim. Although fault is not an issue, as far as the police are concerned, it is critically important to the decision of your insurance company whether or not to agree to pay the other party's claim.
