Orange County Hit & Run Accident Lawyer

Injured in a hit & run? We can help.

There is 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 $75 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.

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

Get help from the professionals at our firm if you or a loved one was injured in a hit and run. If the criminally negligent driver has been identified by police, you can trust us to pursue the maximum in damages from their insurance company. If the perpetrator cannot be found, we will work with your own insurance company to seek to recover the level of compensation you deserve.

  • Thank you again for all your help and dedication

    “Saar, I wanted to say thank you again for all your help and dedication. The settlement was a bonus. My main concern was my well-being. And I'm glad to say I am well. I do not have any back pain and I can enjoy watching and interacting with my daughter. One more time and on behalf of my family, thanks.”

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

    Barbara M.

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”
