Hit And Run Car Accident Philadelphia Lawyer
The lawyers at the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., have handled numerous hit-and-run accidents with injury. Hit-and-run accidents with injuries must be handled properly so that no rights or remedies available to the injured person against the hit-and-run driver are lost. There is no use guessing why the hit-and-run driver actually left the scene - simply accept the fact that he or she did. If you saw the license plate, car make and/or model, or any other identifying information, make sure to write it down so you can make reference to it later.
If you were injured by the negligence of a hit-and-run driver, you MUST call the police. Most insurance companies and the assigned claims plan (if no insurance is available) have a requirement that persons injured in hit-and-run accidents report the hit-and-run to the police within 30 days of the actual hit-and-run. When the officer responds to the scene, provide him or her with as good of a description of the hit-and-run vehicle as you possibly can. It is also important to describe your injuries to the officer or ambulance personnel with as much specificity as you possibly can.
If you are injured and the officer asks if you need medical assistance, exercise you common sense. If you have pain then it is probably a good idea to agree to have first aid responders examine your injuries and possibly transport you to the nearest emergency room. If the injuries inflicted by the hit-and-run driver are not that severe then you can probably contact your family doctor or another non-emergency health care professional when you get home or the following day. Often times, many injuries caused by the hit and run driver will not manifest themselves for 24 hours; sometimes even longer. It is imperative that you seek medical care as soon as possible.
Sometimes, the police will locate the hit-and-run driver and provide you with his insurance information. The following is IMPORTANT. Insurance companies, neither your company nor the hit-and run driver's, are in business to offer you fair compensation. They are in business to make money. For this reason, it is highly advisable that you do not contact either your own company or the hit-and-run driver's insurance company without counsel. If you do, you run the risk of having your own words turned against you to your detriment. By having an experienced lawyer at the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., talk on your behalf, you are eliminating much of the red tape that insurance companies create.
