Tyroler Leonard Injury Law Protects Your Right to Seek Damages
Any kind of car accident is unsettling when you end up suffering injuries. However, should the other driver hit your car and drive away without checking on your injuries or without calling an ambulance to help you, it’s downright terrifying. Your first focus should be on receiving medical care for your injuries. Once you are on the road to recovery, though, you can begin taking steps to figure out whether you are able to try to win a settlement.
The good news is that even if you do not know the identity of the driver who caused your injuries, you still can seek a financial award for your medical bills, missed work, pain, and suffering. The Minneapolis hit-and-run lawyers at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law have the experience and know-how to help you keep your case on track and to try to win the settlement you deserve. Hit-and-run cases can be quite complex, but our team does not back down from tough situations because we know the importance of a favorable settlement to your life going forward.
Hire Our Hit-and-Run Lawyers in Minneapolis and Take Advantage of Our Experience
Although victims of the negligence of others always have the right to seek damages on their own without the help of our Minneapolis personal injury lawyers, this can be a risky proposition on your part. You almost certainly are going through a challenging case like this for the first time, meaning you don’t have the experience to know whether a settlement offer is fair. In reality, the insurance company’s offer often is anything but fair.
You may not even fully understand your rights as a victim in a case like this, allowing the insurance company to try to take advantage of you. Even when the insurer’s representative tells you that the company is ready to work with you on a fair settlement, this rarely is the case. Insurers make greater profits when they limit the amount they pay to victims like you. When you hire our hit-and-run lawyers in Minneapolis, our only focus is to help you. We do not care about how the case affects the insurance company or about the insurer’s profit level.

How Our Minneapolis Hit-and-Run Attorneys Can Help with Your Case
Our Minneapolis hit-and-run attorneys know just how complicated cases like this can become. If you are trying to represent yourself in negotiations with the insurance company, it can be difficult for you to know how you should try to proceed with the insurance companies, who may be pointing figures at each other. At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we use our experience to move the case in the correct direction, always working toward the settlement you deserve to have as efficiently and quickly as possible.
We Help You Decide Which Insurance Company Should Pay the Settlement
When there’s a hit-and-run accident, police officers may not know who the other driver is at first. Sometimes, they find the other driver. Other times, the other driver is never known.
Our team of Minneapolis hit-and-run attorneys can start working on your case as soon as you hire us, regardless of whether we know who the other driver is yet.
- If the other driver is unknown, we begin seeking an award from your insurance company through your policy’s uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) coverage.
- If the other driver later becomes known, we switch tactics and seek the award from the other driver’s insurance company.
We Also Help If the Other Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance
Sometimes, the other driver chooses to flee the scene because of a lack of a driver’s license or insurance coverage. If police find the other driver, but there is no insurance coverage available, we can return to your insurance policy’s UM/UIM coverage to try to seek an award.
FAQ: Trust Our Minneapolis Hit-and-Run Lawyers to Answer All Your Questions
When you are going through a hit-and-run case for the first time, it can be quite confusing. These situations can take multiple twists and turns as you are seeking a settlement. Our team of Minneapolis hit-and-run lawyers understand that you probably have a lot of questions, which is why we promise to take the time to answer them for all our clients. To help you gain a feel for how we may handle your case, here are some common questions our clients ask us, as well as our answers.
Are hit-and-run injury claims easier to win than other accident claims?
Actually, hit-and-run injury crashes can be quite complex, which complicates the process of trying to win an award. Our team of Minneapolis hit-and-run lawyers can study the facts in the case to make sure we are seeking the award from the correct party, which is one of the toughest parts of these cases.
What if police can’t find the other driver to charge with a hit-and-run crime?
Any criminal charges or proceedings against another party don’t really affect our work as your Minneapolis hit-and-run lawyers. Section 169.09 of the Minnesota state statutes requires drivers to remain at the scene in an injury accident. However, as long as we can show that you did nothing wrong and that the other driver behaved negligently in causing the accident, we are able to seek a settlement, regardless of any criminal proceedings.
How much can I win in my hit-and-run settlement case?
There is no average amount or cap on what our team at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law can try to help you win in your claim. Your financial award will depend on the severity of your injuries and on how much your life may change after the accident. It could range from four figures to eight figures.
How fast can you help me settle my hit-and-run injury claim?
Cases can take anywhere from a few months to a few years to settle. The goal of our Minneapolis hit-and-run law firm is always to try to settle your case as fast as possible. However, we do not sacrifice the amount you can win in an award just to finish the case faster. This is our one chance to win a financial award for you related to this accident case, and we put all our efforts into getting the amount right.
The team at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law wants to make decisions together with you on your case. We do not dictate what you should do in your case. Instead, we lay out the facts with you and then discuss the pros and cons before we make a decision together on how to proceed. This is the best way for us to represent you. Learning more about what is important to you and about what you want to see happen in the case gives us the best chance at a successful outcome.

Having to deal with trying to heal from your injuries after another driver hits you and flees the scene is difficult enough on its own.
