What Are MyLegal Options Following a Hit and Run Accident?
The law defines a hit and run accident as a driver leaving the scene of an accident without stopping to identify themselves or call for help. The driver may have struck another car, a cyclist, or even a pedestrian. There may be many motives behind fleeing the scene—fear, lack of willingness to take responsibility, or they are running from the law.
One thing is certain, however, that if you were struck in a hit and run accident, you do have the right to take legal action and hold them accountable. Our Cincinnati car accident attorneys can assist you with the claims process. Backed by more than 50 years of experience and a winning record of success, you can find some comfort knowing that we are on your side every step of the way.
The Consequences of Hitand Run Accidents
Hit and runs accidents, which are also called “hit skips” in Ohio, are a criminal matter. Not only will the driver face criminal charges from the justice system, but may also face you in civil court, should the case end up in trial. While the criminal process can deliver justice where it is due, it cannot provide you with the financial recompense you need.
That is why our team of Cincinnati hit and run injury lawyers are here to help you. Leaving the scene of an accident should never be taken lightly.

- Medical bills
- Lost income due to being unable to work
