Fighting For Victims Of Hit-And-Run Accidents
Car accidents are a bad situation, but they can be made much worse when the other driver flees the scene of the crash. Arizona law states that drivers involved in a car accident are legally obligated to stay at the accident scene until law enforcement arrives. If a driver does not follow these rules there can be serious consequences, particularly if someone is injured or killed. Drivers who leave the scene and are later caught are often charged with a felony or misdemeanor that can include several years in prison and loss of license.
At the Law Offices of Mohammed Alzaidi helps victims of a hit-and-run accident in the Phoenix area. When someone leaves the scene, it presents some legal challenges for the victim, but there are still options. We have experience investigating the accident, as well as identifying sources for compensation and pursuing payment for damages.
What Can We Do?
Arizona requires all motorists to carry liability insurance, but oftentimes the negligent motorist does not have the proper insurance or any insurance at all. This can lead to you making an uninsured motorist claim against your own company or that of the driver in the car, if you or your family member was a passenger.
Sometimes, these companies will refuse to honor their obligation to pay. With the guidance of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney like Mohammed Alzaidi, it can then become a bad faith insurance claim — all insurance companies are legally obliged to honor their contracts and act in good faith. A bad faith claim can lead to damages as well as punitive damages for not honoring their agreement.
