Advocacy in Complex Disputes
Hit and Run Accidents
Hit and run accidents are surprisingly common in Tennessee. If you have been injured by a hit and run driver, it is important to get an experienced Tennessee accident injury lawyer involved to help you recover in such a difficult situation. The Law Office of David S. Hagy, PLC represents clients throughout Tennessee who have been injured by the negligent actions of others, including in car accidents, truck accidents, and workplace injuries, among other types of cases.
Tennessee Hit and Run Accident Injuries
Tennessee law requires that drivers involved in vehicle accidents with injuries remain at the scene and provide their name, address, and driver’s license. But, if a driver breaks the law and leaves the scene — often times because they were driving under the influence or otherwise apprehensive about being confronted by the police — an injured accident victim is going to have work to do to figure out the responsible person and obtain compensation from them, their insurance company, or their employer. This is where a talented and experienced auto accident injury lawyer can help. At the Law Office of David S. Hagy, PLC, we have over eighteen years experience investigating, litigating, and resolving serious personal injury cases. Even when the police are unable to track down the responsible driver, we have the resources and resourcefulness to identify witnesses and evidence that can lead to the responsible party.
Injured hit and run accident victims may also be able to recover from their own insurance policy under the uninsured motorist coverage (UM coverage). Most insurance policies in Tennessee will carry UM coverage in the same amounts as liability coverage, and it can be invaluable in a hit and run accident case to compensate an injured accident victim for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent injuries.
