Tragically, some victims decide seeking the advice of a Boston car accident attorney is not worthwhile in hit-and-run accident cases. As in uninsured or underinsured motorist cases, we believe seeking qualified legal help is critical. In the event that the driver is identified, you may be able to collect from his or her insurance policy or by making a claim against the at-fault driver’s assets. In other cases, you may be able to seek compensation from your own insurance carrier or from another party identified by your attorney, such as a vehicle manufacturer or municipality.

The girl suffered a broken pelvis, as well as bleeding in a lung and kidney. She has also suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and has bleeding in several areas of the brain.
