Legal Help After an Accident Where the Driver Left the Scene
If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, you may understandably be feeling stress and anxiety about your injuries and how you're going to pay off your medical bills. After all, the driver fled the scene and you're not certain whether s/he is ever going to be located. And what does it mean for your recovery if the driver is never identified? Are you going to have to pay off all the resultant costs yourself? It seems completely unjust that you, the victim, have to pay for someone else's egregious mistakes.
There is hope, however. With assistance from Car Accident Help, you may get the financial support you need to cover all the damages that resulted from the collision. If we're not able to find the driver, then we will help you navigate other options for compensation.

Identifying the Liable Driver - Time is of the Essence in Oklahoma
After you have received medical attention, it is important that you consult with a car accident attorney in Oklahoma right away so an investigation can get started in a timely manner - the sooner, the better. As time passes, evidence may fade and witnesses may either forget important details of the accident or opt out of providing vital testimony. The liable driver may also repair the damages to his/her vehicle or relocate to an area far away, making it harder for police and other investigators to find him/her.
Additionally, you should write down everything you remember about the accident as soon as you are able, including the make, model, and color of the car, any numbers on the license plate, characteristics of the driver, etc.
Alternative Options for Coverage in OK
If we cannot locate the driver who hit you, then we will help you seek a recovery through your own insurance policy. The following options may be available to you:
- Uninsured motorist (UM) coverage - If you have this included in your policy, you may receive personal injury coverage from your own insurance company ($25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident are the minimum limits).
- Collision coverage - This pays for vehicle damages.
- Medical Payment to Others (Med Pay) - This covers medical payments of all passengers in your vehicle who were injured in an accident.
- Personal Injury Protection (PIP) - Provides coverage for medical expenses and, in many cases, lost wages, regardless of fault.
Why You Should Hire Our Hit and Run Car Accident Lawyers in OK
You may file a claim with your own insurance company after a hit-and-run crash and proceed without a lawyer. However, the insurance may unreasonably deny, delay, or reduce your claim, and you may not have the tools or know-how to defend your right to full and fair coverage. It is highly advised that you get help from a qualified Oklahoma car accident attorney. S/he can fight the insurance company in your stead to ensure your recovery.
