The reason for this behavior is varied: Drunk driver, young or uninsured driver that gets spooked, or some other reason for trying to avoid a criminal penalty because of their driving and the accident. Whatever the reason for the other driver leaving the scene of the accident, when you get into a Miami hit-and-run accident and experience injuries or the death of a loved one, you should consider filing a civil lawsuit with the winning team at The Alvarez Law Firm.

How Do Hit and Run Personal Injury Cases Work in Florida?

No matter how small the accident is, it is illegal to leave the scene of a Florida car accident before the police arrive. But this crime happens all the time. In fact, there were over 22,000 hit-and-run accidents in 2018 in Miami alone. The way Florida approaches insurance coverage is actually very helpful for this type of common accident. In a no-fault insurance state, victims of hit-and-run accidents can go directly to the coverage of their own insurance (bodily injury coverage and uninsured motorist coverage) to get essential compensation for the injuries and other issues stemming from the accident. 

Just because we are working with your own insurance company does not mean that they will just hand over the money you deserve. Car insurance companies are in the business of saving money, not spending money, which is why you want to make sure you are working with a law firm that knows how to handle and win hit-and-run accidents. At The Alvarez Law Firm, we have been winning Miami hit-and-run accidents for decades and will make sure your case is properly handled every step of the way. We are ready to get started working on a winning case for you today—it only takes one call.
