Denver Automobile Accident Lawyer
What if I’m injured by a hit-and-run driver? When a Denver hit-and-run accident occurs, people are often injured. The driver has fled, no one got the license plate, and it may seem that the perpetrator has gotten away with it. In cases like this, Colorado law treats the other driver as if they were an uninsured driver. This is why it’s important that your auto insurance policy includes uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. If a hit-and-run driver injures you, you may still be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering by bringing a claim under your own insurance policy’s uninsured motorist provision.
However, hit-and-run accidents can be complex and you need an experienced Denver auto accident lawyer who can help you navigate the police and investigation phase, get you medical treatment for your injuries, and work on your behalf in negotiating a settlement.
