Hit-and-Run Accident Attorneys in Northwest Florida
When someone who causes or is involved in an accident flees the scene to avoid being held accountable, this is known as a hit-and-run accident. Sadly, hit-and-run incidents are becoming an all-too-common type of auto accident, and tracking down perpetrators can be exceedingly difficult if you aren’t able to obtain any identifiable information or witness testimony.
A hit-and-run accident can be a traumatic event. Not only can they cause significant physical injuries, but they can have a lifelong impact on the lives of victims. If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, you may still be able to recover compensation. Your own uninsured motorist insurance may provide it, and additional resources may be able to track down the perpetrator of the accident. This can apply even if you were driving a vehicle that was not your own, were struck riding a bicycle, or suffered a pedestrian accident.

Aggressively Advocating for Hit-and-Run Victims
Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime. However, people don’t always care for those consequences. Because tracking down someone who flees the scene of an accident can be difficult, some people choose to risk it and simply take off. This is particularly true for people who may not have insurance or who may have been breaking the law in some other way at the time of an accident, such as those who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Hit-and-run victims and their families may, unfortunately, suffer injuries and situations such as:
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft-tissue injuries
If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, Perry & Young works hard to obtain full compensation for your losses on your behalf. This includes medical costs, lost income, and even noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering. In the case of hit-and-run accidents, we may even be able to seek punitive damages should the judge wish to penalize the at-fault party even further.
