What To Do After A Hit-And-Run Accident

Although any driver can ignore the law and fail to carry the requisite insurance coverage, it is very common that a driver may cause an accident and then flea the scene. These are often known as hit-and-run cases.

If you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident, call the police immediately following the accident.

If it is safe to do so, take photographs of the surrounding scene and of your damaged vehicle. If there were any witnesses to the accident, their testimony may become very important to supporting your claim so ensure that the police involved take the necessary statements from these individuals.

If you are injured, it is also important that you seek medical attention and honestly report your injuries to the doctors providing care to you following the accident.
