Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney in Alameda County, California

Protecting Victims of Hit-and-Run Accidents

When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, one of the first things you want to do is gather all relevant information about the other driver so you can pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses. But what happens when you are injured in a hit-and-run accident? Are you out of luck, without any means of financial recovery for your losses? Not necessarily! An experienced and knowledgeable lawyer may be able to help you get the damages you need to move forward with your life. The Law Firm of Kevin D. Taguchi can help.

A former deputy district attorney in Alameda County, attorney Kevin Taguchi has extensive courtroom experience. We will always work hard to settle your case before trial if doing so is in your best interests, but we are never afraid to take your case to a judge and jury to get the best results for you. In a recent car accident case in which defendants offered to settle before trial for $10,000, we rejected their offer and won a $306,000 verdict for our client.

Helping You Recover Financial Compensation after a Hit-and-Run Accident

Typically, when you have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, you look to the other driver’s insurance provider to cover some or all of your losses. Even if you don’t know who the other driver is (as in a hit-and-run accident), you may still be able to recover damages. Many insurance policies have a clause that provides for coverage if you are injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist. You customarily pay an additional premium for this coverage, but it can be used to cover losses suffered when you don’t know who caused the accident.

At the Law Firm of Kevin D. Taguchi, we know how to read your automobile insurance policy to determine whether you have such coverage. Don’t rely on your insurance provider to tell you whether or not you have coverage. Insurance companies have a vested interest in paying you as little as possible; that’s how they maximize their profits. Even though it’s your insurance company, don’t expect them to be on your side. You want a lawyer to protect your interests.

We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses, from lost wages and income to medical expenses to physical injury. We handle all types of injury claims, from soft tissue injuries to serious and catastrophic loss.
