Every trip that you take in your car or truck on Colorado’s roads involves a risk of being involved in a traffic accident. Obviously, no one wants to be in an accident, and you probably never expect to be in one, but we all know that they do happen. This is exactly why every state in the country requires drivers to carry liability insurance for their motor vehicle. When a car accident inevitably happens, the liability insurance policies of the at-fault driver compensate the drivers of the other vehicles involved for their bodily injury and property damage. By requiring liability insurance, the state is attempting to guarantee that any driver who is not at fault in a Denver car accident is compensated for their financial losses.
One of the issues that really complicates dealing with car accidents is hit and run drivers. The obvious trouble with being involved in a Denver hit-and-run accident is getting a driver who leaves the scene to take care of his or her responsibility. In many cases, insurance can accommodate this in the form of uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance, which will compensate a driver who is struck in a hit-and-run. Of course, sometimes hit and run drivers can be tracked down and held responsible for their actions.
If you are hit by another driver who then leaves the scene, it is important that you call the police to file a report. Any identifying information that you can give the police about the driver may be helpful: a physical description of the driver, a description of the car, part or all of the license plate number; every little bit of information has a chance of helping the police identify the driver. Once you have notified the police, you should call your insurance company. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, they can file a claim for you. You should also contact a Denver hit-and-run accident attorney.
There are a number of ways that an experienced attorney can help you in a hit-and-run accident. They will know what kinds of details may help the police to identify the driver. Sometimes, something that seems insignificant may turn out to be very helpful. If the driver is identified, you will need the help of an aggressive Denver hit-and-run attorney to help recover compensation for your accident. They can also negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to be sure that your vehicle is repaired and your medical bills are covered.
