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.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

  • Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”

    Deborah V.

  • Saar Swartzon was very hardworking and courteous.

    “Saar Swartzon was very hardworking and courteous. The physical therapist he recommended was beyond excellent, and he coordinated all my visits and appointments. If I ever need a personal injury attorney, he will definitely be my man”

    Arash B.

  • 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.”

    Jose A.

  • Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”
