Hit-And-Run Accidents And Your Options For Compensation

At Floyd Leopard, LLP, in Augusta, we hold impaired and inattentive drivers accountable for their negligence that resulted in a serious accident. Cases are complex, especially when the responsible party flees the scene. However, you still have options to secure the compensation you need.

Trusted And Respected Hit-And-Run Accident Lawyers At Your Side

Since 1950, residents in Georgia and South Carolina have come to rely on our firm as a trusted legal resource and common destination for car and truck accident victims. We address their concerns. We answer their questions. We tailor legal strategies to maximize compensation for the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

A hit-and-run accident is a serious criminal matter. However, fines and incarceration do little to provide victims a sense of justice. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, only to witness the other driver leaving the scene, you still have options to recover compensation. We will conduct in-depth, detail-driven investigations, specifically eyewitness accounts, to locate the responsible party.

Drivers flee the scene of the accident for a variety of reasons. They may lack a driver's license, proper insurance coverage or legal immigrant status. Other times, they are simply afraid to face consequences.

If you have uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, we can file a claim against your own insurance company. Regardless of your loyalty to your insurer, pursuing compensation will create an adversarial relationship. You still need an attorney because your insurance company may try to minimize the payout or engage in bad faith tactics.
