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.

Issues that Must Be Addressed in Hit & Run Cases

Hit and run accidents have specific issues that must be addressed by a legal professional who is familiar with the process of handling these types of claims. If the responsible driver has been caught by police, it may be possible to pursue punitive damages (those damages intended to punish – beyond what is termed general damages). Since the individual who caused the accident fled the scene, there was an intention to avoid the consequences of his or her actions.

It is advised that you connect with us to review the following aspects of your case:

  • The degree of the injuries sustained
  • The costs of medical treatment and care needed to treat the injuries
  • A careful and complete estimate of other losses sustained by the victim
  • A review of the legal facts in the case, including whether the driver was identified
  • A full analysis of your existing insurance policies, both auto and personal
