How is Liability Determined?

Determining liability in a hit-and-run accident involves a distinct set of challenges compared to regular car accidents. At Fielding Law, our approach encompasses thorough investigations, a cornerstone of our strategy that involves conducting exhaustive inquiries to collect critical evidence essential for identifying the responsible party. In hit-and-run cases, where the at-fault driver flees the scene, our team ensures no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of justice.

Witness statements play a pivotal role, providing detailed accounts of the events leading to the accident. These statements become crucial in reconstructing the circumstances surrounding the incident, adding additional layers of evidence to strengthen your case.

Insurance Coverage

Navigating the intricate realm of insurance is crucial in hit-and-run cases. We guide you through:

Uninsured Motorist Coverage: This coverage proves pivotal in hit and run cases, providing compensation when the at-fault party remains unidentified, ensuring you are not left bearing the burden of expenses.

Medical Payments Coverage: Essential for covering immediate and ongoing medical expenses, irrespective of fault, this coverage becomes a critical component of your recovery journey.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
