Boynton Beach Hit and Run Car Accidents
In a hit and run accident, a driver leaves the scene without providing their contact information or waiting for the police to arrive. Fleeing the scene is often intentional and done to avoid taking financial responsibility for the damages caused by the crash—or, possibly, to avoid criminal prosecution for a crime the driver was committing at the time, such as driving under the influence or driving without a license.
Hit and run is a criminal offense in Florida, and it can carry serious penalties that include jail time, fines, and a potential loss of license. If the accident involved injuries or fatalities, the charge becomes a felony, and the driver, if convicted, can spend up to 30 years behind bars.
Despite these incentives not to flee the scene of an accident, 25% of Florida drivers involved in accidents do just that every year, according to the Florida Department of Safety and Motor Vehicles. At the Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato, our job is to help the victims of these crashes collect the full and fair compensation they deserve.

How We Help You Recover Compensation
A hit and run accident can be a harrowing experience. Not only must you deal with your injuries and the damage to your vehicle, but you have to wonder how you will pay your medical bills or meet your other expenses if you are forced to miss work. After a car accident where the at-fault driver remains at the scene and has insurance, you can file a claim against their policy for damages above and beyond what your own insurance covers. When you do not know the identity of the at-fault driver, however, this becomes more difficult.
Fortunately, you have options for recovering compensation, and the Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato can help you pursue them. Among these options are:
Tracking Down the Driver
Hit and run drivers flee the scene because they do not want to be identified and held accountable for their actions. With the technology available today, it is easier than ever to identify these drivers and hold them liable. Technological advances make it tougher every year to get away with crimes and avoid detection.
We will scour every piece of available information from your crash, including photo and video surveillance, eyewitness statements, and more. Our investigative staff has had great success in tracking down hit and run drivers who injured our clients.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
We will review your auto insurance policy to determine if it contains uninsured motorist coverage. This insurance rider pays for damages caused by drivers who lack insurance, and it typically covers hit and run scenarios, as well.
Filing Another Type of Insurance Claim
Aside from uninsured motorists, we have several potential ways to help you recover fair compensation from the insurance company. First, we can file a claim with your personal injury protection (PIP) policy, which all Florida drivers are required by law to carry. If your damages do not exceed the limit of this policy, you can recover damages without filing a claim with another driver’s insurance. If your damages are greater than your PIP policy limit, we may be able to obtain coverage through your comprehensive or collision coverage policies.
You May Be Eligible to Receive Compensation
