Hit and Run Accidents
Car accidents range from the run of the mill fender bender to multi-car highway pileups and result in a wide variety of injuries from bumps and bruises to broken bones, head trauma, paralysis and death. Even seemingly minor accidents can result in serious harm that may not be noticeable directly after crash. The injuries, property damage and frustration that often accompany a car accident are only multiplied in a "hit and run" situation, in which one or more of the drivers simply speeds off after a wreck.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a hit and run car accident, you need an experienced attorney who can protect your interests and hold the responsible parties accountable for the harm you have suffered. The Alabama hit-and-run accident lawyers at Allred & Allred, P.C. have the experience, skill and commitment necessary to fight for the compensation you deserve.

State law requires a driver involved in a car accident to immediately stop and not only provide certain basic information to other drivers, but also give "reasonable assistance" to those injured. A driver who fails to do so is subject to criminal penalty. Of course, if the driver caused the accident, he or she is also responsible for any related injury or damage. Even in situations where the responsible driver in a hit and run accident can't be found, injured drivers and passengers are likely entitled to seek uninsured motorist compensation from their insurance companies.
At Allred & Allred, we are particularly capable of representing clients injured in hit and run accidents because of our 40+ years of combined legal experience, much of which came defending insurance companies in these and other types of personal injury cases. We firmly understand the legal intricacies involved in these matters, as well as the tactics and strategies that insurance companies use in approaching a hit and run case. Lawyers throughout the state and across the country refer clients to us because of our experience, ability, and commitment to the people we represent.
Our Alabama personal injury lawyers are both skilled litigators and accomplished negotiators. We prepare every car accident case as if it were going to trial, but work hard to reach a settlement without putting you through the stress of a long court battle. In so doing, we also attempt to hold accountable each and every party that may be responsible for an accident. That means a hit and run driver, but possibly also parties such as a faulty equipment manufacturer or a bar owner who provided alcohol to a driver before a crash.
Our attorneys are available to review and evaluate your case, whether it concerns a hit and run accident or any other Alabama personal injury claim. We can provide an honest and complete assessment of your case and explain how we can help. Contact us to speak with one of our lawyers today.
