Injured In A Hit And Run Near Portland?
Under Oregon state law, it is illegal for a driver or passenger of a vehicle to leave the scene of an injury accident without police approval. Every year, hundreds of drivers, bikers and pedestrians are injured in hit and run accidents. Victims are left to fend for themselves to recover money damages from their homeowners’ or uninsured motorist auto policy.
If you or a member of your family has been involved in a hit and run accident, the Law Offices of Daniel Snyder can help you determine if there is insurance compensation to cover your financial losses.
What To Do After An Accident
After a hit and run accident, it is critical to report the accident to the police and your insurance company immediately. The police must file an accurate report, which we will rely on to file a claim for damages.
Gathering critical evidence and interviewing witnesses is important. Contact our offices in Portland to schedule an opportunity to meet with us right away.
We work diligently to find every available source of personal injury funding to pay for:
- Property damage
- Medical treatment costs
- Lost wages and earnings
- Transportation expenses
- All other financial losses
In many cases, we can help you recover money for pain and suffering and emotional distress, as well.
Fighting Your Own Insurance Company
Do not think that your insurance company will be happy to take care of you after a hit and run accident. The truth is, when you file a claim against your uninsured motorist policy, you suddenly become an adversary trying to take money out of their pockets. We stand up to insurance company attorneys with hard evidence and facts on your side, as we negotiate a fair settlement or prepare for trial, if necessary.
