Suffering an injury in a car accident is stressful enough. But when the person responsible for the accident flees the scene, the situation becomes even more complicated. A hit-and-run accident attorney in Little Rock, AR, can help you determine who is liable, explore your legal options, and pursue compensation for your losses.

After a car crash, the drivers involved are required by law to stay at the scene, and they are supposed to exchange information with each other, such as their names, contact information, and registration number. Unfortunately, some drivers perform a hit-and-run, meaning that they hit someone’s car and flee the scene of the accident instead of staying and following the appropriate procedures required by law.

Many of these drivers do this because they do not have insurance, have warrants out for their arrest, or are drunk—all of which can get them in serious trouble with the law. If you or a loved one has been injured in a hit-and-run accident, NST Law’s hit-and-run accident lawyers in Little Rock, AR, are ready to discuss your case and guide you through the legal process. We may be able to assist you in recovering damages.

Types of Damages You May Receive in a Hit-and-Run Accident Case

The common injuries people sustain in hit-and-run accidents include head trauma, whiplash, skull fractures, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and more.

These injuries can result in hospital visits, extensive rehabilitation, missed work, and a loss of earning capacity long-term.

You may be entitled to receive financial compensation for economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages offset your financial costs, such as medical bills and lost wages, while non-economic damages compensate for your intangible losses, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, and loss of consortium.

How Liability and Insurance Work in Hit-and-Run Accident Claims

If you identify the driver, you must establish their negligence to recover damages. This requires you to prove the following:

Our attorneys can help you gather evidence to prove your case.

However, there is still the possibility that you may not be able to recover damages from the responsible driver. For example, you may be unable to recover compensation from the other driver if they do not have insurance. Or their policy limit may be too small to cover your damages fully.

If the driver cannot be found or has been identified and doesn’t have insurance, your insurance coverage may come into play. Depending on the coverage you purchased, you may be able to file an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim with your own insurance company.

In this situation, your insurance company can take a position adverse to your interests and try to limit how much it pays. So, hiring a knowledgeable car accident lawyer in Little Rock is critical.

FAQs About Hit-and-Run Accident Claims in Arkansas

It’s natural to have questions after being injured in a hit-and-run collision. To help you better understand the legal process, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about these types of cases.

Yes, there is a time limit for filing a hit-and-run accident claim in Arkansas. Under the state’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims, you must file your claim within three years of the accident.

Under Arkansas law, you may still recover damages if you were partially at fault for the accident as long as you were less at fault than the other driver. However, your damages will be reduced in proportion to your fault for the accident. This is known as comparative fault. 

For example, if you were 20 percent responsible for the accident, you can only recover 80 percent of your damages.

It depends. Many cases are settled outside of court. However, hit-and-run cases can be especially complicated, and proceeding to court to recover damages may be necessary.
