What To Do When A Driver Leaves The Scene Of A Crash

Occasionally, a driver will flee the scene of a motor vehicle accident, especially if he or she is at fault. Obviously, this is illegal, but it also creates additional challenges in obtaining compensation for injuries and damages. If you have been injured in a hit-and-run accident, it is critical to work with a team of attorneys with the experience and knowledge to help you get the results you need.

At Brannon & Brannon, our lawyers have more than 45 years of combined experience handling hit-and-run and other auto accident claims in Fort Walton Beach and Destin and throughout Florida. We will explain your rights and find a way to help you obtain full compensation for the injuries and losses you have suffered.

Exploring Every Avenue For Your Compensation

Our attorneys know how to handle vehicle accident injury and wrongful death claims involving hit and runs. We will handle every unique complication in your case:

  • Seeking out the driver: Finding the other driver can be extremely challenging. Our lawyers work with the police and investigators when needed, and we will do everything possible to find the other driver and hold him or her accountable.
  • The other driver's insurance: Assuming we find the other driver's identity, we can seek compensation from that insurance carrier.
  • Your insurance: Most policies carry some kind of coverage for hit-and-run drivers. We can seek out compensation from your insurance company if needed.

As a two-attorney father and son team, we make client care our No. 1 priority. With Brannon & Brannon, you will work with your lawyer — not an inexperienced associate — throughout your case.
