In a regular car accident, the parties involved will exit their vehicles so they can exchange insurance information and can proceed with their claims. When there’s a single-vehicle accident, you may be worrying about affording the damages or how insurance will cover it even though the negligent party isn’t there. It’s important to know that there are still legal options for you.
The law firm of Belsky & Horowitz, LLC, is ready to represent your interests. Throughout the Baltimore, Maryland, area we represent individuals who have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents and other personal injury and auto accident claims. We are experienced Baltimore car accident lawyers who continue to maintain a proven track record helping injured victims.
Do I Still Have A Claim If My Vehicle Was the Only One in The Accident?
In most cases, yes. You still have a claim if you are in a single-vehicle accident. It is important that you talk with a lawyer at Belsky & Horowitz, LLC, soon after the accident so we can determine if you have a claim and what type of benefits you may be entitled to.
Examples of single-vehicle accidents include:
- Getting run off the road by an unidentified driver
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Passenger accidents
You may be able to get benefits under your own insurance policy if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Even as a passenger, there are still possibilities for recovering benefits. Without help from an attorney you risk missing out on available benefits for your claim, and at Belsky & Horowitz, LLC, we will make sure that your rights are protected.
There’s also an investigation that goes with a hit-and-run accident because it’s a crime. The police have a few methods to use that could potentially lead them to the person responsible. They’ll check the surrounding area and see if there is any video surveillance they can consult or they will look for eyewitnesses. If nothing turns up, police may even turn to social media to reach more people and see if they saw anything out of the ordinary.
One major thing that you should know about is to stay off social media when dealing with a car accident. Your posts can be used against you, especially if you’re seeking pain and suffering damages. Insurance companies could use your posts as evidence that you’re overexaggerating your pain or not as hurt as you claim to be.
