Columbia Hit & Run Accident Lawyer

South Carolina is overwhelmed by an epidemic of hit and run collisions. Many innocent motorists are minding their own business when a dangerous driver plows into them—only to stomp on the gas pedal and speed away. This is a hit and run accident. It’s illegal. It’s wrong. But it’s also surprisingly common.

Contact The Stanley Law Group if you were hurt in any type of car accident, including a hit and run. You deserve compensation when the accident is through no fault of your own. A Columbia hit & run accident lawyer with our firm can meet with you in a private consultation. We want to know more about the accident and your injuries so we can better serve you.

Why Do Drivers Flee the Scene?

South Carolina law requires that motorists stop and help injured victims. Yet, countless motorists flee instead. Why do they do that?

  • Intoxication or drug use. The driver might be high and afraid of being arrested and charged with a serious crime. Instead, they flee to avoid getting caught. Of course, leaving the scene is also a crime, and many busted defendants end up spending years in jail.
  • Lack of insurance. If a driver lacks insurance, they could end up sued personally, which means they could lose money in the bank or other assets. They take their chances running away.
  • A high driver might not even be aware they crashed into someone because they are so out of it. This is a real possibility.
  • Some younger drivers might not understand the law requiring them to stop. Their inexperience causes them to flee.
  • Motivations vary. As the injured victim, of course, you might not really care why the driver fled. All you want to know is whether you can receive compensation. The Stanley Law Group has good news: we have negotiated many settlements for our clients injured in hit and run collisions, and we might be able to help you, too.

One strategy is to submit a claim on your uninsured motorist policy, called UM insurance. This insurance kicks in if the driver who injured you doesn’t have liability coverage. We can also use UM coverage if you were hurt by a hit and run driver.

We will work to obtain compensation for your medical expenses and other losses related to your bodily injuries. Call us as soon as possible. We might also use other insurance to get your car fixed. Untangling the insurance issues is a big headache, and accident victims should focus solely on their recovery.
