A Thousand Oaks hit and run car accident is one of the most frustrating type of serious car accidents to get into because not only are you dealing with the aftermath of a wrecked car and your own injuries but the person responsible for your current situation is nowhere to be found. Thousand Oaks hit and run car accidents happen all the time but the good news is that even though the responsible party might not be identified at this point, you still have legal options, a Thousand Oaks hit and run lawyer can help.
Thousand Oaks Hit and Run Car Accident Legal Help
Some of the more common reasons that hit and run accidents happen include:
- Fear: the driver responsible for the crash simply panics out of fear. The panic leads them to drive away and that's what happens far too often.
- Outstanding Warrants: In some cases the driver knows that they might have a driving or criminal record and want to avoid getting caught.
- Drunk Driving: While a drunk driver clearly does not have the mental or physical capabilities to get behind the wheel they also are some of the biggest culprits when it comes to hit and run car accidents either because they were unaware of what they did or they are trying to avoid getting caught for driving under the influence. The weekends are also the most common time for hit and run accidents to happen because people are out drinking and driving.
- Pedestrians: Unfortunately, unassuming walkers are common victims of hit and run accidents usually because the driver panics at thinking that they just seriously injured or even killed someone with their car.
While these common types of accidents do often end with the driver being identified (especially when it involves a drunk driver), you certainly do not want to wait until that might happen. If you were in a hit and run without injuries, you can work directly with your car insurance company. If, however your crash involved injuries then you should get in touch with Walch Law ASAP.
What arr your legal options following a hit and run? The typical Thousand Oaks car accident involves filing a lawsuit against the car insurance of the responsible party. A hit and run car accident involves filing a lawsuit against your own insurance company under your uninsured car insurance policy. Many people do not even realize that they have this type of coverage but it is a great aspect of your policy designed to help give you funds for situations like hit and runs and when you get int a car accident with a driver that stays at the scene of the accident but does not have any insurance. Even though it is your own insurance company and should be on your side, they are still going to want to see a strong case and will likely fight giving you your policy limits which is one of the many reasons why you want to find the best Thousand Oaks car accident lawyer for you. In addition to seeing a doctor, following a hit and run crash be sure to write down everything you remember from the crash and get witness information so that we can help build the strongest case possible for you.
