What Do I Do After a Hit and Run?

Fetto Law Group Takes a Stand for Justice

A hit and run accident is one of the most senseless acts any individual can be subjected to and as the victim, you may struggle with anger and confusion. Fortunately, you do not have to sit by, helpless, while your losses go unacknowledged. You may still be able to recover compensation and Fetto Law Group can help.

We are closely familiar with California’s laws surrounding car accidents and are eager to stand up for what you deserve. With over 30 years of experience, our Walnut Creek car accident attorney is an advocate you can trust.

Put a Walnut Creek Car Accident Lawyer on Your Side

After a hit and run accident, it is imperative that you get as much information as possible about the car that hit you. If you can, write down the model, make, and license plate number. Reach out to any witnesses to the accident and obtain their contact information. Before leaving the scene, take numerous pictures of your car.

Of equal importance is contacting the police to file an accident report immediately after the collision. With a police report on file, you can show your insurance company that you took the time to document the incident and verify the truthfulness of your claims.

When it comes to compensation for your losses, this ultimately depends on your car insurance coverage. The two types of coverage that may protect you after a hit and run are:

  • Uninsured motorist bodily injury (UMBI) coverage for medical expenses
  • Uninsured motorist property damage (UMPD) coverage for car repairs

Our firm can help you understand specifically how your car insurance applies to your accident and fight for the highest amount of compensation. With so much on the line, you can’t afford to go without legal assistance. Call us today to speak personally with our car accident lawyer in Walnut Creek!

    “John, Sandy, & their amazing team took me from the possibility of getting nothing, to a settlement I never dreamed possible.”
    A letter of appreciation to John and his Team, I was in a bad car accident; I was rear-ended so hard it took two tow trucks to pull the vehicles apart. I was referred to John Fetto by my healthcare professional. I was worried if I could even get compensation because I had a long history of neck and back problems. I ended up needing physical therapy, multiple Epidural Steroid Injections in my neck, and finally surgery to fuse 3 vertebrae. After going through the deposition and medical examination requested by the other side, the opposing insurance company did not want to pay anything because of my prior history. John would have none of that and he began to prepare for court. He assembled an amazing team to fight on my behalf. Kenia collected and assembled years of my medical history. Russell produced documents, coordinated zoom meetings, and created an amazing visual presentation to present in court. John, knowing I was willing to go to court, called in Sandy Cipinko, an excellent trial attorney. The two of them worked flawlessly together each handling different aspects of the case. John is a true professional. John, Sandy, and their amazing team took me from the possibility of getting nothing, to a settlement I never dreamed possible. This shows you that, even with an extensive medical history, you can still come out a winner with John and his team. I will always be grateful to them. Sincerely, Rose

    “Attorney Fetto and his staff were professional, forthright and very helpful!”
    I have had the pleasure of interacting with Mr. Fetto and his staff on a personal injury auto accident that had transpired several years ago. He has been professional, forthright and very helpful in attaining justice because the person who T-boned me had the same insurance company as myself. So, AAA did not wish to sue themselves and I got stuck with a lot of expense i.e. depreciation for my automobile as they did not total it, put the accident on my driving record when I had witnesses that said that it was not my fault, neck injury, etc., etc., John has been on top of everything, is compassionate and caring along with knowing the law and I trust him. I would recommend his services to anyone seeking a lawyer for personal injury as he is the best.
