Hit & Run Accidents

San Jose Car Accident Lawyer Helping with Your Claim

When individuals get into car accidents, they are supposed to stop, exchange insurance information with the other party and render aid when needed. Unfortunately, there are many irresponsible drivers out there who completely disregard this duty so that they can avoid having to be held financially responsible for accidents they caused. This forces the victims in these types of accidents to file claims through their own insurance companies, such as through their uninsured motorist coverage.

If you are in this type of situation, you should have a skilled attorney assisting you with your claim. While we tend to think that our own insurance companies would be willing to assist us, the reality is that there are many insurers that are willing to shortchange their own policyholders just so that they can save money.
