Hit and Run Accidents
Hit and run incidents are on the rise, leaving innocent people injured, and sometimes proving to be fatal. In Wisconsin, leaving the scene of a crime is a criminal offense. If someone has hit you and fled from the scene of the accident, you have the right to pursue justice. If you have sustained injuries after a hit and run accident, the accident attorneys at Action Law Offices can help you obtain the justice you deserve.
Hit and Run Scenarios
- A drunk driver runs a stoplight and hits pedestrians at a crosswalk, causing catastrophic injuries to their neck, spine, and limbs.
- A distracted driver changes direction abruptly and hits a cyclist at high speed, proving fatal; a wrongful death.
- A vehicle is traveling too fast through a construction zone and hits a worker, causing bodily harm including broken bones and lacerations.
- A trucker dozing off at the wheel hits a motorcycle rider, causing serious injuries including head trauma and internal bleeding.

About Your Accident
We'll ask what you remember about the accident, and offer some advice regarding your next steps. In the meanwhile, do not try to negotiate with an insurance company.

Who is Responsible for Paying for Injuries After a Hit and Run Accident?
The motorist who hit you will be held responsible by the law, and also for your injuries. In many hit and run cases, the driver who caused the accident speeds away from the scene of the accident, leaving few clues to their identity. If this is the situation in your case, uninsured motorist coverage may be available. This coverage may cover your injuries and medical treatment, even if the person who hit you fled, and even if you were not in a vehicle when struck.
Getting a fair settlement from an insurance company can be complicated and exhausting. The insurance company will be unwavering in their attempts to settle quickly so they can pay out the bare minimum. You deserve more. Don't become a victim twice. Obtain full compensation for pain and suffering, property damages, physical therapy, medical bills, and lost wages by hiring experienced personal injury attorneys at Action Law Offices.
