Orlando Hit-and-Run Accident Lawyer

Hit and Run Car AccidentIn Florida, drivers must have car insurance in order to get a license. But once they have their driver's license, they may illegally drop coverage or stop paying monthly premium payments.

Without car insurance, many drivers are tempted to flee accident scenes. If you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident, you are not out of luck. Attorney James Cunningham has vigorously represented car accident victims more than 30 years, and he will help you obtain as much compensation possible to help you recover from your car accident injuries.

Accidents Involving Uninsured Drivers

If you were in a hit-and-run accident, report the crime right away to police and get the names of any witnesses, their phone numbers and addresses. Police officers will follow-up with the witnesses to try and determine the identity of the driver.

Unfortunately, in some cases, the facts of the investigation will lead police officers down a dead-end. But hope is not lost. Since 1977, the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. has aggressively represented clients injured by underinsured and uninsured motorists.

Mr. Cunningham will evaluate your insurance policy to determine to what extent, if any, you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This may cover your medical bills, loss wages and any future rehabilitation costs up to the limits of your insurance policy.

Were You Forced Off the Road by Another Driver?

Many people do not realize that a hit-and-run accident can include a "phantom vehicle" that runs you off the road - even if they did not hit your car.

Did another driver cause you to swerve out-of-control and hit another car or run you off the road? Even if a car runs you off the road and flees the scene, you may still be able to obtain significant compensation. Personal injury attorney Cunningham will work to help you receive the compensation you need to for your injuries and property damage.
