Hit-And-Run Accident Lawyer

Have you discussed your legal options with an accomplished personal injury lawyer in Texas? Just because the at-fault driver fled the scene of the accident, it does not mean that you are out of luck. If you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your auto insurance policy, your insurance company is responsible for your injury and damage expenses at least up to your policy limit.

If you are like most drivers in Texas, you only carry the minimum amount of uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which will limit your recovery. However, this might not be your only option for injury compensation.

At Apffel Law Firm, we can provide you with a comprehensive case evaluation free of charge. Attorney Trey Apffel is a top-tier Texas personal injury attorney with over 30 years of experience advocating for and representing the best interests of accident injury victims in challenging legal cases.

  • If the at-fault driver can be found, we may be able to prove that willful misconduct or negligence took place, allowing us to potentially pursue an uninsured motorist claim and punitive damages on your behalf.
  • If your own insurance company refuses to provide you with coverage, it may be possible to hold it accountable for insurance bad faith, which occurs when your insurance company does not uphold its obligations to you as defined by your policy.

Should You Hire A Lawyer After A Hit-And-Run Accident?

Considering how limited your options are without a lawyer and the fact that our services are based on contingency (we only get paid if we achieve a favorable settlement or verdict for you), retaining legal counsel is very wise. We will independently investigate your claim, help you find affordable medical care and aggressively work to maximize your compensation.

Our staff will handle all legal aspects of your claim and all communications with the insurance company. Attorney Apffel is a board-certified specialist in personal injury trial law and civil trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He will consistently work in your best interests and keep you well-informed while remaining responsive to your questions and concerns throughout the legal process.
