Most car accident claims are straightforward if the at-fault party is easily determined. But if you were struck by a phantom car, however, it can be extremely difficult to recover your entitled compensation to cover property damage and injuries. If you sustained a serious injury after being involved in a hit and run accident, you must get experienced legal assistance from an experienced injury lawyer.

To obtain monetary damages for your accident and injuries, you must take specific actions immediately after the incident, if possible. First, record as much information as possible. What was the make and model of the car? What was the color? Did you catch their license plate number? The more information you gather and provide to the police and your attorney, the more likely they can track down the suspect.
If you are unable to identify the at-fault driver, however, then you may still recover compensation from your own insurance provider. It is important to understand that your insurance company is looking out for their own interests, meaning that they will do their best to reduce your settlement, or deny your claim entirely. In order to protect your best interests, you must have an experienced attorney on your side.
