Were You Injured In A Hit-And-Run Car Accident?
Few actions are more irresponsible than causing a car accident or hitting a pedestrian and then leaving the scene rather than stopping to lend assistance to the person who may be severely injured. At the Law Office of Robert A. Miller, in Eugene, Oregon, we represent the victims of hit-and-run drivers.
Our lawyers will guide you through the steps you will need to follow in order to recover the fullest possible compensation for your injuries. We offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and answer your questions. Get in touch with us to discuss your situation with an attorney at our firm.
Phantom Vehicle Claims
In Oregon, cars that hit and run are known as phantom vehicles. An accident caused by a phantom vehicle must be reported to the police immediately. You will need an independent witness to substantiate the accident. Be sure to call the police to report the accident, get the names and addresses of everyone who witnessed the collision, and seek medical attention.
Once you report an accident, our lawyers will work with the police in an attempt to find the hit-and-run driver to hold them responsible both criminally and through our civil justice system.
If the hit-and-run driver is not found — which unfortunately happens most of the time — our attorneys will help you file a claim for compensation against your own coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorists.
