Wilmington Hit-and-Run Accident Lawyer

We Represent Victims of Crashes Throughout North Carolina

North Carolina law requires any driver in an accident to stop and provide assistance and exchange information with the other driver, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian involved. However, some drivers choose to flee the scene. While a hit-and-run driver may face criminal charges if he’s caught, those penalties do little to compensate you for the injuries you suffered.

If someone rammed into you and drove away without providing any information, you still have the right to pursue compensation, even if the driver cannot be found. Protect your rights and call the Rhine Law Firm, P.C., at (910) 772-9960 or toll-free (866) 772-9960.

Wilmington Injury Lawyers on Your Side Following a Hit-and-Run

Victims of hit-and-run accidents must take certain steps, depending on the extent of their injuries. Those include:

  • Write down any information about the at-fault vehicle, specifically the make, model, and license plate.
  • Call law enforcement to report the crash and the fact that the driver fled.
  • Identify any witnesses and get contact information from them.
  • Document the accident site through photographs.

Your options for damages are not limited following a hit-and-run. In North Carolina, auto insurance policies are required to provide uninsured motorist coverage (UM), allowing us to pursue compensation from your own insurance company. Quite often, people are reluctant to file a claim with their own insurance company, but a hit-and-run is an example of why it is crucial to have UM coverage. Some drivers also carry "med pay" coverage, through which their insurance companies will pay their medical expenses. This coverage is inexpensive and is a good benefit to have.

Our job is to investigate all possible sources of coverage available, not just those of the person causing the collision. The Wilmington car accident lawyers at Rhine Law Firm, P.C., have substantial experience in maximizing recovery for your injuries.

When a Pedestrian or Cyclist Is Hit

It is not uncommon for pedestrians and bicyclists to struck by negligent drivers, and for those drivers to flee the scene. They may have been breaking the law, been impaired and didn’t want to get caught, or may have left simply because they did not want to take responsibility for causing harm to another person.

When a pedestrian or bike rider is hit by a car, they must endure two impacts that can cause serious bodily damage. First, the impact of being hit by a car; second, the impact of hitting the ground. Typically, after these collisions, an injured person requires medical attention immediately. Spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries are just some of the common wounds hit-and-run victims must deal with if they survive the accident.

Here at the Rhine Law Firm, P.C., we are tired of hit-and-run drivers hurting innocent pedestrians and cyclists and getting away with it. We will do everything in our power to get our clients the justice they deserve.
