Bloomington Hit-and-Run Lawyers

Minnesota drivers who may not have a driver’s license or who may be driving drunk are violating state statutes and shouldn’t be on the roads. When such drivers are behind the wheel, though, they have higher chances of violating other laws, too. Should these drivers hit you and leave you with injuries, they may be more likely to flee the scene to try to avoid consequences from law enforcement.

You may believe that if the other driver leaves the scene, you have no options for filing a personal injury claim for your pain and suffering. As our Bloomington hit-and-run lawyers at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law can help you understand, though, you do have some options for seeking a financial claim regarding your injuries. Winning a claim can be a tricky process, but our team has the experience you can trust to achieve the results you want to see.

Why You Should Pick Our Hit-and-Run Injury Attorneys in Bloomington to Represent You

When you have injuries after a car accident that was not your fault, you deserve to win a financial settlement that covers your medical bills and that helps you with lost wage reimbursement while you are unable to work as you regain your health. For many victims, this settlement amount is absolutely vital to helping them maintain the quality of life that they had before the accident.

One minute, you have financial goals that you want to help your family achieve, like home ownership or helping the children or grandchildren pay for college. The next minute, you could be facing an inability to work and to pay for the medical care you now need because of the hit-and-run crash. Without winning a fair settlement, you could end up with severe financial hardship.

At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we fully understand the importance of this settlement for your well-being. When you choose to hire our hit-and-run injury accident lawyers in Bloomington, you can trust that we will take your case as seriously as you do. Because we focus on personal injury cases rather than on other areas of the law, you can trust that we have the experience and skills to give us the best possible chance of success.

How Much Is My Hit-and-Run Injury Accident Claim in Bloomington Worth?

Because of our strong track record of success and our ability to win six- and seven-figure settlements for our clients, you can be certain that we know what it takes to work toward maximizing your award.

Trust Our Bloomington, MN, Hit-and-Run Attorneys with the Complexities of This Type of Case

When seeking an injury award, hit-and-run accidents are challenging. If police cannot track down the negligent driver who hit you and fled the scene, you may need to seek your injury award from your own insurance policy through the uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. Not only does this coverage protect you when another driver doesn’t have a large enough policy to fully cover your severe injuries, but it also helps when the other driver’s identity is unknown.

Minnesota statute 65B.49 requires drivers to carry minimum amounts of UM/UIM coverage. However, even though you have this coverage, you may find that your insurance company is not willing to just give you the award that you should have. In fact, your insurer may surprisingly start treating you with hostility when you try to receive a UM/UIM payment.

When you hire our hit-and-run injury accident lawyers in Bloomington, we will go to bat for you, ensuring that your insurance company understands that it needs to honor its obligations set forth in the policy related to UM/UIM and pay you the award you deserve.

FAQs: Common Questions Clients Ask Our Bloomington Hit-and-Run Injury Attorneys

At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we understand that trying to deal with your injuries after a car accident is difficult enough on its own. When someone else caused the accident and then left the scene without making sure you were OK, though, the complexities and emotional trauma you are feeling can increase significantly. Our team of Bloomington hit-and-run accident attorneys wants to do as much as we can to reduce stress related to your situation. This is one reason why we take whatever time is necessary to answer questions about your case, always striving to keep you informed.

What happens if the police find the hit-and-run driver?

When the identity of the driver who hit you and caused your injuries is unknown, our Bloomington hit-and-run accident lawyers will seek an award from your UM/UIM coverage. However, if police later find the driver, we can pivot our case to begin seeking an award from that driver’s insurance company. Any criminal proceedings against that driver have no bearing on our case, other than for helping us collect evidence.

What if I can’t afford to hire Bloomington hit-and-run lawyers?

At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not charge you anything at the time you hire us, nor do we charge you anything if we don’t win your case. Our payment comes from a percentage of the final settlement amount in the case, so you have no financial risk by hiring us.

How long does it take to settle a hit-and-run injury claim?

There is no set time required for concluding these types of cases. Some cases take a few months, while others take a few years. Cases where victims have severe injuries or where the facts of the case are unclear – which sometimes can happen in a Bloomington hit-and-run injury accident – typically take longer. We always try to reach a successful conclusion to your case as fast as possible.

Is a hit-and-run claim worth more than a regular car accident claim because of the driver’s violation of the law?

Because your injury award focuses on the severity of your injuries and on the financial hardships you had to endure because of the accident that wasn’t your fault, the award amount doesn’t change based on any separate criminal charges related to the accident. Our Bloomington car accident lawyers always seek your best possible award amount, regardless of the circumstances revolving around the crash.

We do not want you to ever be unsure about the steps that your case is taking. After you hire us, you can ask us any questions you want, and you can count on us to take the time to answer you truthfully and honestly. In fact, our hit-and-run injury lawyers serving Bloomington will always be honest with you. In a case like this, you need professionals who will be honest about the chances of winning your case and about the best strategies to use. We promise to tell you what you need to hear, not what you may want to hear, so there are no nasty surprises when the case comes to a conclusion.
