Hit-and-Run Victim Claims
Law enforcement and private investigators may be able to find hit-and-run drivers and force them to face consequences for causing a crash. Investigators may use evidence such as footage from traffic cameras, security camera photos or video, or eyewitnesses from other vehicles to determine the type of vehicle involved and whether it has any distinguishing marks that will make it easier to locate, even if a license plate number is unavailable. Even without finding the driver who caused a crash, most New Jersey drivers have mandatory coverage for accidents caused by unknown drivers, known as uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, though pursuing these claims involve challenges from insurance carriers. A knowledgeable New Jersey car accident attorney can help you get the damages you deserve after a crash with a hit-and-run driver.
