I'm sorry for your accident. I hope you're okay.

I recommend that you file a Police Report and give the Police the note and let them decide what to do in terms of charging the person (driver). The unknown driver could be liable for the damages to your car as well as leaving the scene of an accident.

someone hit my parked car on june 22nd 2020 and their insurance company wrote my car off as a total loss, but is giving me next to nothing for my car. Should I hire a lawyer to get more money out of them?
More information is needed however, Generally a good lawyer can prevent a conviction on all of these charges and only have you plead to 1 or 2 out of 4, if you are in fact guilty of the crime.
