Orange County Hit & Run Accident Attorneys

Helping You Navigate Insurance Claims and Legal Action

Leaving the scene of a car accident is illegal, but many drivers do it anyway. When you don’t know who hit you, proving liability and pursuing legal action can be more difficult. That’s why most hit-and-run accidents are handled through your insurance company.

To make a valid claim, however, you usually have to carry uninsured motorist coverage, and sometimes, insurance companies refuse to honor the terms of your contract.

If you need help navigating a hit-and-run claim, Sachs Law, APC can help. Our attorneys focus exclusively on personal injury law and have plenty of experience dealing with insurers.

Discuss your claim with us today – call us anytime, 24/7, at (949) 575-8744.

Hit-and-Run Statistics

In 2016, hit-and-run deaths reached a record high. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a total of 2,049 people died in hit-and-run crashes and nearly 65% of those killed were pedestrians or bicyclists. If you are injured outside of your vehicle, car insurance companies may be less likely to award the coverage you paid for, even though you were injured in a car accident. Our attorneys can help illuminate the terms of your policy and hold insurers accountable for their end of your agreement.

If the individual who hit you is arrested, we may also be able to file suit against them and seek punitive damages. Nevertheless, many drivers who flee the scene of an accident do so because they don’t have insurance, and filing a lawsuit against someone who cannot afford insurance is unlikely to be financially fruitful.

At Sachs Law, APC, we will explore every aspect of your unique situation and pursue the most appropriate legal action.

What you need after a hit and run are results, and our firm is here to help you get them.

Injuries in Hit-and-Run Collisions

Every 43 seconds, a hit-and-run accident occurs in the United States. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured in these collisions.

Injuries can be catastrophic and include:

  • Soft-tissue injuries (sprains, strains, and herniated discs)
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Paralysis and permanent disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

While no amount of money can change what happened, pursuing policy maximums from your insurance company can help you obtain the resources you need to recover from an injury, adjust to a life-changing disability, or mourn a personal loss without financial pressure.

Fight for maximum compensation with Sachs Law, APC.

Contributing Factors in Hit-and-Run Accidents

Many drivers flee the scene of an accident between midnight and 4 a.m., and hit-and-run accidents have a high correlation with both visibility and alcohol. If no one witnesses the accident, the at-fault driver is more likely to run away. Similarly, drunk drivers typically flee to avoid criminal consequences.

Studies suggest that drivers leave the scene of an accident more often when they feel like they are at fault. All this data will come in handy if the person who hit you is caught, but it can also help us develop a case with your insurance company.

At Sachs Law, APC, we are well-informed and will use a modern approach when handling your case. Our legal techniques are creative and effective, increasing your chances of a favorable outcome.
