In Need of a Hit and Run Accident Lawyer in Austin, TX?

Experienced Hit and Run Accident Attorneys in Austin, Texas

Glen Larson Law Injury Attorneys know that getting hurt in a Texas car accident is a life-changing experience. Unfortunately, in many of these cases, the damage does not stop there. When the injury victims have the opportunity to collect their thoughts after the crash, they often look up to see the driver who caused the accident has fled the scene.

While seemingly unimaginable, hit-and-run drivers often leave the crash scene to avoid being held accountable for an existing violation. This may include, but is not limited to, driving on a suspended license, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding or texting when the crash occurred, or because they are in existing legal trouble, including having a warrant for their arrest.

This does not exclude them from being liable for the crash. It also shouldn’t keep Texas residents from pursuing the best outcome for their unique injury circumstances. We can help.

Hit and Run Accident Law in Texas

How Can I Pursue Financial Recovery from a Hit and Run Driver in Texas?

Texas laws require all drivers to carry minimum liability coverage, which includes:

  • $30,000 for each injured person.
  • $60,000 per accident.
  • $25,000 for property damage per accident.

However, one of the most common reasons drivers flee from crash scenes is that they do not have vehicle insurance. The chances of that being true in Texas are higher than in most states, as the Insurance Information Institute reports that 13% of the state’s drivers are uninsured.

The question becomes, how do you hold fleeing drivers liable for the crashes, injuries, or deaths they have caused?

While extensive law enforcement investigations can eventually lead to the liable driver being held responsible for the crash, if they are never found, have no insurance, or have inadequate insurance coverage, our hit-and-run accident attorneys can explain your legal rights and options for pursuing your insurance coverage for your complete compensation needs.

If you are hit by a driver who left the scene of the crash, your insurance coverage may provide financial relief, assuming you have opted into one or more of the following coverages—as none of the following options are required by law:

  • Medical payment (MedPay) coverage pays your and your passengers’ medical bills. It also pays if you’re hurt while riding in someone else’s car, walking, or biking.
  • Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is similar to medical payment coverage. It pays your and your passengers’ medical bills. But it also pays for things like lost wages and other nonmedical costs. All auto policies in Texas include PIP coverage. You are required to tell the company in writing if you don’t want it.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage pays if you’re hit by someone who didn’t have insurance or didn’t have enough to pay your medical and car repair bills. It also pays if you’re in a hit-and-run accident. Insurance companies must offer you this coverage. You must tell the company in writing if you don’t want it.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a crash caused by a hit-and-run driver in Texas, our car accident lawyers will review your insurance policy for applicable coverage options that will help cover your damages and pursue your insurance company for compensation.

Why Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney to Pursue My Insurance Company for Compensation?

While you’re not legally required to hire a car accident attorney to pursue compensation from your insurance company, there are several reasons you should.

First, the complex rules and regulations surrounding car accidents and applicable insurance coverages can be daunting for someone without legal experience.

The insurance company—even when it is your own—may (and probably will) try to minimize the amount they are willing to compensate you  for your injuries and damages. Our experienced Texas hit-and-run attorneys know how to negotiate with insurance companies and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve, including damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

We have the resources and skills to gather evidence, such as police reports, witness statements, medical records, and expert testimony, to support your claim and build a strong case on your behalf.

Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming, especially if you’re trying to recover from injuries. Our skilled attorneys can alleviate some of the stress and uncertainty by handling the legal aspects of your case, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

While you can pursue compensation from your insurance company alone, having a car accident attorney on your side can significantly increase your chances of success and ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
