Hit and Run Accident

I’ve been fighting for Wisconsin Hit and Run accident victims for decades, and I understand the tragedy and complexity of your situation. You’re facing painful injuries, loss of work, emotional trauma, and if you’ve lost a loved one from this incident, loss beyond measure.

My personal injury team handles each case understanding all of this. We walk you through the aftermath of this tragedy with compassion and fiercely advocate for your rights. We’re here to protect you–from insurance companies who want you to settle low with compensation that won’t be sufficient for your lifelong needs, and from other attorneys who want to settle quickly and move on.

Many personal injury law firms are content to settle quickly, take their cut, and move on. These “sign and settle” lawyers rely on a high volume of cases and won’t fight for the amount you really deserve.

My team and I are here to aggressively fight for you to secure a significant settlement. Reach out so we can meet right away, on your terms, wherever you live in the state.

Frequently Asked Hit & Run Accident Injury Questions

The first thing you should do if you are in your car or someone is injured is to call 911. This will help supply the medical help needed. Also, the official accident report will help police look for the missing driver and will be useful when you file your accident claim.

If possible, get as much information as you can about the driver, car and accident, including:

  • License plate number
  • The other vehicle’s make, model and color
  • Description of damage to the other vehicle
  • Which direction the other vehicle was headed
  • Photos of the damage to your vehicle
  • Location, date, time and cause of the accident
  • Name and contact information of any potential witnesses

After a typical car accident in which the other driver was at fault, you would get their contact information and file a claim with their insurance company to receive compensation for your damages and injuries. What happens when that driver disappears? A hit and run car accident can make it feel impossible to file a claim. After all, who can you file it against?

My personal injury team can help you put the puzzle together piece by piece. Do not feel hopeless–we have investigative resources to help determine who was liable for your hit and run accident. We have successfully established liability and successfully won countless claims for Hit & Run accident victims.

You deserve to have a qualified legal team advocating for you, and because you’re dealing with so much, we don’t collect any fees until we win your case. Our NO WIN, NO FEE policy is there to help you focus on healing while we seek to recover the maximum compensation you need and deserve.

The state of Wisconsin requires all car insurance policies to include uninsured motorist coverage, protecting you in case the other driver has no insurance or inadequate insurance. This coverage can also include coverage for a hit and run accident. Even if the at-fault driver is missing in action, your own insurance policy may compensate you up to a certain amount for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Vehicle and/or property damage
  • Lost income

While this amount is better than nothing, it may not cover the cost of all your damages and injuries, especially major injuries that will impact you for a lifetime. Having a personal injury attorney with a deep background in the workings of insurance companies and experience in hit and run car accidents can increase your chances of receiving the compensation you deserve.

We take winning personally.

Let’s get you EVERYTHING you’re owed.

2 1/2 Years ago my life was turned upside-down. I called lawyer after lawyer that never cared to call me back until I called Steven Caya's office and they got back to me right away. When he said he would take my case it was such a sigh of relief. Steven and his team were there for me every step of the way after my accident and I never felt left out. They always kept me so informed! I'm hoping I will never need them again but if I did I would 100% go back! Thank you all so much for your care and support during such a rough time!!
