What Do I Do If I Was Struck in a Hit-and-Run Accident?

If you were struck in a hit-and-run accident, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced pedestrian accident attorney immediately. Under Nevada law, all drivers have a duty to stop their vehicle and remain at the scene of a pedestrian collision. The failure to do so is a serious criminal offense — it could even be a felony charge. Sadly, hit-and-run pedestrian accidents do happen. Your lawyer will help you determine the best way to protect your rights and pursue financial compensation after a hit-and-run. This could include everything from conducting a comprehensive investigation in order to identify the hit-and-run driver to pursuing a claim through your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
