Hit & Run Accidents
The number of hit-and-run accidents in Orlando has risen in the past few years. Florida law requires drivers involved in a crash to stop the vehicle, especially if someone was injured. Drivers must then remain at the scene until law enforcement arrives. Failure to follow Florida law can result in charges of first degree felony or misdemeanor.
There are many reasons why people leave the scene after an accident, including driver intoxication, expired or lack of license, no available auto insurance, stolen vehicle, or outstanding warrants for their arrest on another matter.
Our Orlando hit-and-run accident attorneys will guide you to pursue a claim for injuries caused by a negligent driver, even if the driver leaves the scene or ends up not having any insurance coverage. Many victims wrongly assume that they have no case, if they do not have the license plate or other information of the phantom vehicle. Our hit-and-run lawyers have an extensive knowledge of Florida state’s insurance laws and other avenues to pursue to win your hit-and-run accident case.
