Leaving the scene of an accident without stopping to identify oneself and provide assistance is illegal. This act, commonly referred to as a “hit and run” accident, not only leaves victims without crucial aid but also complicates their pursuit of rightful and just compensation for their losses.

Actions to Take After a Hit & Run Accident

In the aftermath of a hit and run accident, swift action is crucial to protect your rights and enhance your chances of obtaining compensation for accident-related damages.

Here are the steps you should follow immediately after a hit and run:

Call 911 and report the accident to local law enforcement

If the accident resulted in injury, death, or property damage exceeding $750, you are legally required to report it to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days. If the police arrive at the scene, they will handle and submit this report on your behalf.

Gather as much information about the hit and run driver and vehicle as possible

If feasible, take photographs of the vehicle and its license plate. Record details about the vehicle, including its make, model, approximate year, color, and any recollections about the driver. Additionally, document your injuries and any vehicle damage.

Provide all available information about the hit and run driver and vehicle to the police

The more information and evidence you provide, the greater the likelihood of locating the responsible party. However, please note that the police may not always succeed in finding and charging the hit and run driver.

Seek immediate medical attention, even if you believe your injuries are minor

Shock and stress can mask the severity of injuries; some may not manifest for hours or even days. It is crucial to consult a medical professional following any car accident or motor vehicle collision.

Notify your insurance company about the accident

Depending on your auto insurance policy, you may be entitled to compensation through your own coverage. You may already have this coverage if you have yet to decline uninsured motorist (UM) insurance in writing explicitly. UM insurance applies if you are hit by an uninsured driver or involved in a hit and run accident or other incidents where the at-fault driver cannot be identified.

Consider seeking legal assistance from a hit and run accident attorney

Recovering compensation after a hit and run accident can be challenging but not impossible. A hit and run attorney can help you navigate the process, deal with the insurance company, or explore alternative compensation avenues while focusing on your physical recovery.

Our hit and run accident and injury attorneys are here to support you throughout this process. We can review your auto insurance policy to identify potential avenues for compensation, collaborate with law enforcement to provide evidence of hit and run accidents and assist you in pursuing legal action against the responsible parties to secure full compensation for your losses.

Why Choose a Hit & Run Attorney?

After a hit and run accident, you may face significant medical expenses, related costs, and financial difficulties stemming from time off work. In severe cases, you could suffer catastrophic injuries leading to substantial and permanent impairments or disabilities.

Your immediate priority should be obtaining medical care to facilitate physical recovery.
