Hurt by a Hit and Run
Automobile accidents can be violent, traumatic, and cause serious injuries. Even under the best of circumstances, New Jersey car accidents can leave you with steep bills and a mountain of paperwork to manage. If the other driver flees the scene of the accident, this terrible situation can get even worse. You might not know where to turn to make sure you get the compensation you desperately need to cover time spent off work recovering from your injuries, medical bills and rehabilitation costs, and the property damage you sustained in a crash.

New Jersey Insurance Law for Hit and Run Claims
The laws governing car insurance in New Jersey can be confusing. Whether you’ve chosen not to opt out of the no-fault system, or have retained the right to file a claim for car accident damages in court, the standard New Jersey car insurance policy includes coverage for accidents with uninsured or unknown motorists. That said, you may not have an easy time receiving everything you’re owed when you file a claim with your insurer after a hit and run. Car insurance carriers may contest your version of events, or they may try to convince you to accept a lesser settlement for your injuries. An experienced New Jersey hit-and-run injury lawyer will know how to investigate your claims and gather the best possible evidence to support your case, and will use their intimate knowledge of the value of car accident claims to ensure that you don’t settle for less than you’re owed.
