How Can You Get Compensation from a Diver Who Left the Scene?

It can be difficult to get compensation from a hit-and-run driver because, by definition, they failed to stop at the scene of the accident and exchange information. In addition, even if the police can locate the driver, they may have fled the scene because they were breaking the law by driving without insurance. 

Our attorneys can help you explore your options for seeking hit-and-run accident damages, which may include:

A Personal Injury Protection Claim

Florida drivers must have at least $10,000 in PIP to pay for medical treatment resulting from a vehicle accident. This coverage applies no matter who is at fault for the collision. According to Florida Statutes § 627.736(a), PIP covers 80 percent of all reasonable medical expenses as long as you seek initial treatment within 14 days of your crash. 

Our attorneys can file your PIP claim and negotiate a fair settlement for your health care bills. However, PIP does not offer compensation for vehicle damages or other accident-related losses.  

A Claim Under Optional/Additional Policies You Hold 

Though not mandatory, drivers can choose to add additional insurance policies, including underinsured/uninsured motorist, collision, and comprehensive coverage. If you are still paying off your car loan, your lender likely requires that you have a comprehensive policy. 

We can review your insurance agreements and determine if you have any applicable policy to pay for your hit-and-run damages. 

A Claim or Lawsuit Against a Third Party 

We can investigate your accident to determine if a party besides the hit and run driver may be at fault. For example, another motorist may be liable if their reckless actions forced the hit and run driver to perform a defensive driving maneuver that resulted in your crash. 

You may have a claim against a government or private road owner if an issue such as negligent road maintenance or dangerous road design contributed to your collision. If defective tires, brakes, or another vehicle problem led to your accident, you may have a claim against a manufacturer. 

A Claim or Lawsuit Against the Hit-And-Run Driver

If law enforcement can locate the driver who fled the scene, we can help you hold them financially responsible. If you have severe injuries or your medical bills exceed your PIP, you may seek awards through their bodily injury or property damage liability policies or a personal injury lawsuit.

What Awards Can You Seek? 

As mentioned, your PIP will cover necessary accident-related medical expenses, including ambulance transportation, surgeries, hospital and doctor fees, and rehabilitation and nursing services. If your injuries qualify you to step outside the no-fault system, we can pursue these damages with a liability claim or lawsuit. Additionally, we can fight to secure compensation for:

  • Lost wages, earnings, benefits, and retirement income
  • Loss of future earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from returning to work
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Loss of limb, body part, or bodily function
  • Stress, anxiety, depression, and mental anguish
  • Loss of the ability to participate in activities and hobbies
  • Wrongful death compensation on behalf of your loved one’s estate and surviving family members

Do not wait too long to get started on your case. You have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit and two years to pursue a wrongful death action, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11. If the statute of limitations runs out, you will likely not be eligible to seek damages in court. Even if you are confident your case will settle, an expired statute could result in a reduced or denied payout.
