Lisa Aguilar was hit by a car on May 4th while she was mowing her front lawn in Irving. The 49-year-old single mom suffered several broken bones and now uses a walker.
Police say a silver Toyota Camry speeding down Rochelle Road was turning onto Manion Street when the vehicle entered Aguilar’s yard, crashed into her, then drove off!
Aguilar’s 16-year-old son found her on the ground unconscious and immediately called 911. The driver has yet to be identified.
As I have wondered here before, what is going on out there?
In hit-and-run accidents, the at-fault driver is rarely found. Even worse, even when they are, they often do not carry insurance. If you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident or an accident caused by an uninsured driver, you still have options. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, Personal Injury Protection or Medical Payments benefits, or health insurance, I encourage you to file on those policies.
A lot of people believe that their own insurance companies will be helpful and compensate them fairly. They think they will do better without an attorney. The truth of the matter is that insurance companies will pay you little, if anything, unless they have to. They may pretend to be on your side, but when it comes down to it, they will try to avoid paying you what you deserve.
If you’ve been in any wreck, you want an experienced board-certified injury lawyer on your side. The insurance companies have lawyers on their side, shouldn’t you?
