What is a phantom vehicle accident?

You are driving along a road you may have traveled hundreds of times without incident. However, on this day, a car veers into your lane, and in a split second reaction, you swerve to avoid a collision and crash into another vehicle. It is over so fast that, by the time you realize what happened, the other car has driven on and out of sight. This is what is known as a phantom vehicle accident.

Most everyone knows that a hit-and-run accident is when another driver's car collides with yours, but the driver leaves the scene before police arrive. Sometimes those drivers can be tracked down through eyewitnesses or debris left at the scene. In a miss-and-run, the other car never touched yours, so there may not be any evidence left behind. It is not likely that you were looking for a license plate number while you were trying to avoid an accident. All you may remember is that the car was blue. Or was it green?

Hit-and-run or miss-and-run accidents may be more complicated than other types of accidents when it comes to claiming compensation. Even if your own insurance policy is supposed to cover you in these instances, you may have to fight with your insurance company to convince them you deserve those benefits. This is something you may not have the time or energy to do if you are recovering from injuries you suffered in the accident.

So that you can focus on your recovery, it is beneficial to have someone in your corner who understands how insurance companies work. The Law Offices of W. Dan Mahoney, P.C. are ready to fight for you. Using proven experience and a wide network of experts, we will work for the best possible results for you.
