A Dynamic Approach to Auto Accident Claims
At Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson, we can overcome the challenges inherent in a complex hit and run accident claim. The first step is proving that you were struck by another at fault motorist. It is not required that the police locate the other driver. We can still build your case and reconstruct the accident, even if law enforcement cannot locate the at fault fleeing driver.
Claims Involving Uninsured Drivers
Even if we can locate the perpetrator, that does not guarantee that the negligent party carries insurance. Many times, lack of insurance is the reason they flee the scene of the accident. Regardless of their insurance status, there are means we can use to obtain compensation for the victims. There are ways to collect even if we have to pursue your own uninsured motorist insurance coverage.
