Consulting a Lawyer in a Timely Manner After a Hit and Run
Making sure that you are covered legally is a vital first step. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a crash like this, you must make sure that your attorney can assist in every step. They can run a background check of the vehicle involved to determine whether they were driving– a major part of the investigation that is time critical.
Our attorneys will make sure that any witnesses are interviewed, surveillance tapes reviewed, and our experience in investigative skills used alongside the police. We can help determine who was driving and do so quickly to make sure that the evidence holds up in court. Waiting even several days could severely impact a case like this.
Of course, we offer a free first consultation to determine your claim. We work on a contingency basis– we don’t take legal fees until we win compensation for you.
Example of Recent Victory:
In one example, our firm took on a case for a estranged wife and daughter of a victim who, according to police reports, was drunk and nude, wondering around on the highway. He was run over and killed by multiple parties, one after another, at least one of whom fled the scene of the crime. Ultimately, the survivors’ first attorney withdrew from the case. But Ehline took a second look at the file, signed the family up as clients, and did additional investigations. This was a tough case, but due to our investigations, and understanding of insurance bad faith law, and the Cumis counsel rules, our firm was able to exhaust the insurance policies of the drivers who ran the victim over and secure a large settlement for the family.
Example of Recent Win
In a recent example, our firm fought the case on the behalf of an estranged wife and daughter of a victim that was allegedly drunk and nude, wandering the highway. He was run over and killed by several cars, and at least one fled the scene. The first attorney for the victim’s family withdrew from the case– leaving them high and dry. The Ehline Law Firm took a second look at the case, assisted the family, and did the necessary investigations. This, of course, was a difficult case– but our exhaustive efforts and knowledge of insurance bad faith law allowed us to challenge the insurance policies of the responsible parties and win a significant victory for the family.
Hit and Run Settlements and Verdicts
Our firm’s reputation was built for a reason. We fight for every penny against every responsible party for a settlement. Our attorneys have accomplishments under their belts and a team of negotiation and litigation experts that have won hundreds of thousands for hit and run clients alone and more for other injury and wrongful death victims.
Ehline Has The Knowledge and Skill to Win Your Los Angeles, California Hit and Run Injury Claim
Our firm ensures that you are retaining only the finest legal advocates with the case study and experience necessary to investigate and win your case. We don’t settle until you get what you deserve and keep you in the loop every step of the way. We are able to use our skills to find smaller clues, like bumper stickers, bumpers, and other marks and items to determine whose car hit yours. We can uncover things that were missed in the first Traffic Collision Investigation reports filed by the police.
If needed, we will take the victims back to the scene to re-create what happened and find other evidence– perhaps even more eyewitnesses. We go the extra mile to bring closure to the case and win for our clients– who become our partners.
Other Sources of Recovery:
There are several ways to receive monetary compensation, which can include pedestrians that are hit challenging their own homeowner’s insurance for coverage. A driver hit in a case like this can also use their own uninsured motorist coverage, which insurance companies try to avoid but our lawyers excel at.
There also could be partial fault in the government, especially if there is a faulty traffic signal– like both drivers having a green light. Just because the driver left doesn’t mean that the city or county’s responsibility did too.
