Orange County Hit & Run Accident Lawyer
Injured in a hit & run? We can help.
There are a high incidence of hit and run accidents in Orange County, and these
car accident cases have specific problems and difficulties. First, the responsible
party is unknown. The statistics on identifying the driver are not reassuring.
Only about 1 in 4 hit and run drivers are ever identified by the police.
The injured person is now in the position in which there are extensive
medical costs and other damages. It then becomes necessary to access your
own insurance policy to recover compensation for the various damages in
the case. Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. has recovered
more than $50 million in damages for the injured. Find out what we can do for you.
Punitive Damages for Injury Cases
You may assume that after faithfully paying your insurance premiums, it
should be a fairly simple task to get compensation as a victim of a hit
and run, but this is unfortunately far from accurate. Even your own insurance
company can make the process of getting a fair settlement extremely difficult,
and offer you far less than you are due under the terms of your policy.
At our firm, we have extensive knowledge about
how insurance companies operate, as one of our lead attorneys has a background serving as defense counsel
for insurance companies.

legal professional who is familiar with the process of handling these
types of claims. If the responsible driver has been caught by police,

who caused the accident fled the scene, there was an intention to avoid
the consequences of his or her actions.
