What A Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Attorney Can Do For You After A Hit And Run Accident


A 55-year-old man from Minneapolis, was killed in early April 2021 after a hit-and-run crash in Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale Fire-Rescue got to the scene and rushed the man to the hospital, but unfortunately, he died hours later.

A hit-and-run crash like the one that killed this man can be traumatic. If you lost a loved one in a hit-and-run crash, you must be feeling devastated. An injured victim also goes through a lot after such a crash. If you lost a loved one or sustained injuries in a hit-and-run crash, remember that you have rights. On top of being convicted criminally for failing to stop after an accident, a driver that causes an accident and runs can be held responsible for civil damages if they caused the accident. Therefore, you might be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the fleeing driver and obtain compensation from them once they are caught if they have insurance.

If you or your loved one were a victim of a hit-and-run motorist, you immediately need to contact a qualified personal injury attorney. Below are three things a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney can do for you after a hit-and-run accident.

Help You Prove Liability

Even if the driver is apprehended and convicted criminally, you need to prove that he was at fault for your accident or the accident that led to your loved one’s death so you can obtain compensation. Sometimes proving liability can be challenging, and that is why it would be best for you to work with an attorney.

Help You Gather Supportive Evidence

If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, you would need to prove the extent of your injuries and that you were injured in the accident. To do this, you will need to provide evidence. A skilled personal injury attorney can assist you in assembling the evidence you need to support your claim. For instance, a qualified personal injury attorney can gather evidence that can help you prove the extent of your injuries and a link between your injuries and the accident.

Help You Seek All Damages

If you lost your loved one or were injured in a hit-and-run crash, you might be eligible to receive several compensatory damages. A personal injury attorney can assist you in calculating and demanding all the economic and non-economic damages you deserve. A personal injury attorney can even help you receive punitive damages.
