Hit and Run Investigations

The process of accident reconstruction is of high value to a personal injury law firm. Investigators look into evidence such as any vehicle or road markings on the pavement, fragments of the motor vehicle, paint chipping from the car, and much more. Finding surveillance video footage or potential witnesses from nearby businesses or neighborhoods can also lead to promising results. These are just a handful of the techniques that can produce positive outcomes in the hunt for a motorist that caused the motorcyclist’s injuries.
