What Is a Hit and Run Accident Claim?
A hit and run accident claim is a demand for financial compensation. The claim is based on the victim’s rights under the law. Florida laws protect hit and run victims and give them the right to demand payment from the party responsible for the hit and run.A claim may be based on how the accident occurred in the first place and the fact that the other driver chose to flee from the accident scene. A hit and run accident claim is the victim exercising their right to financial compensation. It is using the legal system to help a victim get the compensation they deserve and hold the other person accountable for their actions.
Why Bring a Hit and Run Accident Claim?
If you’ve been in an accident, you know that it can be a terrifying experience. The first concern is evaluating injuries. The next step is to identify the parties involved and exchange information. Florida law requires both drivers to remain at the scene and provide their driver’s license and vehicle information to each other. When the other driver chooses to flee the scene of the accident, an already scary situation can become much worse.
What Damages Can a Hit and Run Victim Recover?
Here are some of the categories of losses and damages that you may qualify to claim:
- All kinds of medical expenses: hospital costs, ambulance transportation, doctor’s visits, the costs of surgeries, procedures and testing, prescriptions
- Physical therapy including things like crutches, wheelchairs and scooters
- Mental health treatment
- Lost wages; lost future income
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Mental suffering compensation
- Compensation for lifestyle changes and reduced mobility
A hit and run claim is based on economic losses and non-economic losses. Economic losses are your financial losses. Economic damages cover both out-of-pocket bills that arise and the ways that you can’t earn money in the future because of what happened.
However, equally important in any hit and run case is your non-economic injuries. Not all injuries in a hit and run accident can be totaled by receipts. You have physical pain and emotional anguish. Compensation for this suffering is a large part of any hit and run claim.
Do I Have a Hit and Run Accident Claim?
You may have a hit and run accident claim in two circumstances:
Legal Claims Based on the Other Party’s Fault for the Accident
First, if you’re injured because the other party causes the accident in the first place, you may bring a claim. A hit and run accident is an accident, first of all. The standards of legal negligence apply to the crash, as well as the other driver choosing to leave the scene. Your right to file a claim based on the events leading to the accident doesn’t change because the other driver flees. You have a claim if you’re the victim of an accident caused by the other party.
In Florida, minimum injury thresholds may apply. However, a first-party insurance claim may be available to you in addition to a third-party claim. Our attorneys can help you evaluate your case to determine all of your rights and options.
Legal Claims Based on the Hit and Run
Second, a legal claim may be based on the events surrounding the hit and run. Fleeing from an accident scene is a crime. Also, it can make an already serious accident much worse. When the other party flees the scene, it can leave you without the medical care that you need. It can cause you panic and stress. A legal claim may be based on the circumstances surrounding the hit and run, in addition to the events of the accident.
