Hit/Runs Require Experienced Pennsylvania Car Accident Lawyers
A hit-and-run car crash requires special handling that is different from the routine Pennsylvania car accident. Often, insurance policies require a timely notice to the involved insurance companies. Other insurance coverage issues, including issues of permissive use and intentional act exclusions, are sometimes implicated. Working through these complicated contractual issues is critical to obtaining a successful Pennsylvania injury settlement.
