About Massachusetts Hit And Run Accident Victims Insurance Claims

Stoughton and Randolph Hit And Run Accident Claims Attorneys

Motor Vehicle Accident AttorneysIf you are the victim of a hit and run car accident you don’t have to lose all hope simply because the driver that caused the accident fled the scene. You are still left with options for recovering damages even if the police cannot find the hit and run driver after the accident. In most cases your own insurance company will cover your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering that are the direct result of the hit and run accident. However, if you are involved in a Massachusetts hit and run accident  it is imperative that you contact a Stoughton personal injury lawyer that has an understanding of the complex hit and run laws and insurance policy provisions.

An accident where the other motorist fails to stop and provide his or her license and insurance information is a hit and run. The following  are some hit-and-run scenarios:

  • A car accident where the other driver causing the accident flees the scene without providing his/her license, contact and insurance information.
  • Getting cut-off and run-off the road by another motorist, who then leaves the scene even if that motorist’s car makes no contact with your car.
  • A car flees from the scene after hitting a pedestrian.
  • A vehicle striking a bicyclist then flees the scene without giving their contact information.
  • A car flees from the scene after cutting-off a bicyclist or otherwise causing that bicyclist to get into an accident.

The standard Massachusetts Automobile policy provides coverage for any medical bills, lost earnings or pain and suffering if the holder of a Massachusetts automobile insurance policy has been the victim if a hit and run. Most insurance policy holders don’t realize that their own auto insurance automatically providers coverage in this hit-run situation.

If you’ve been injured in a hit and run accident while in an automobile, as a pedestrian or on a bicycle, then you are likely entitled to compensation for your injuries. Our personal injury attorneys can hold your insurance company responsible for compensating you for your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Getting compensation for a car accident may seem simple to the victim:  someone else caused or contributed to the accident, you were injured, and so you should be compensated.  But insurance policy terms and Massachusetts laws make things a little more complicated than that.  There are many provisions and restrictions that can be confusing to lay people — especially when insurance companies contest liability or when they offer to settle claims for the least amount possible and not necessarily what the victim is entitled to.

Our lawyers know how to deal with insurance companies and work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
