Experienced Hit and Run Accident Attorneys in Houston, Texas

Are You Injured In A Hit and Run Accident?

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston hit and run accident attorneys know that it is against the law for drivers to leave the scene of a crash involving injuries or fatalities.

Unfortunately, it happens more often than it should. It is estimated that Texas has the eighth-highest number of hit and run fatalities in the country.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were no deathless days on Texas roadways in 2021. Tragically, many of those collisions may have been caused by hit and run drivers who failed to stop at the scene of the accident.

Some of the most common reasons drivers leave crash scenes, including vehicle collisions, pedestrian, and bicycle accidents, is because they may already be breaking the law and do not want to get caught or add to legal troubles.

That may include driving on a suspended license, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding or texting when the crash occurred, or because they are in existing legal trouble, including having a warrant for their arrest.

This does not exclude them from being liable for the crash. Nor should it preclude our Texas residents from being able to pursue the best outcome available for their unique injury circumstances. We can help. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a hit and run crash in Texas, contact our experienced car accident attorneys in Houston today to schedule a free consultation.

How Can I Pursue Financial Recovery from a Hit and Run Driver in Houston, Texas?

The one clear fact from hit and run crashes in Houston is that there are no other drivers to hold liable for the accidents, catastrophic injuries, or fatalities that occur.

While there are extensive law enforcement investigations that can eventually lead to the liable driver, so they can be held responsible for the crash, our Houston hit and run accident attorneys can explain your legal rights and options to pursue your insurance coverage for your complete compensation needs.

Texas laws require all drivers to carry minimum liability coverage, including:

  • $30,000 for each injured person
  • $60,000 per accident
  • $25,000 for property damage per accident

In addition, there is uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage, which can be pursued when the policyholder is injured in a hit and run crash that can help cover the costs of your injuries.

Am I Required to Carry Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Insurance Coverage in Texas?

In the state of Texas, drivers are not required to carry uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage. However, most do, because all insurance providers must ask all Texas insurance consumers if they would like to add uninsured / underinsured coverage to their policy.

Our dedicated Houston hit and run accident lawyers can review your insurance policy to ensure you have the applicable coverage and begin pursuing your insurance company for your financial recovery needs.

Like all insurance companies, yours is simply not going to write a blank check for your recovery needs. We can help negotiate the best outcome for your case, by presenting the necessary evidence and supporting documentation that holds your coverage accountable for your crash and injury needs.
