I Was Involved in a Hit & Run Accident – What Should I Do?

Hit and run accidents typically occur for one of two reasons: The driver is uninsured or the driver does not have a valid driver’s license. Despite it being against the law to leave the scene of an accident, drivers still flee the scene in an attempt to avoid harsher punishment. When no witnesses are present, hit and run drivers usually get away with it. Here’s what you should do if you’re involved in a hit and run accident.

What to Do After a Hit & Run Accident

Get As Much Information as Possible About the Vehicle

If you have been involved in a hit and run accident, try to get as much information as you can about the vehicle. If possible:

  • Get the other vehicle’s license plate number
  • Make note of the make, model, color of the car
  • Write down a description of the driver

In the case of a severe accident or if the other driver fails to stop at the scene, it may be difficult or impossible to get any information about the vehicle or the driver.

Taking photos of the damage and the accident scene can help your case.

File a Police Report

There are serious consequences to leaving the scene of an accident. Filing a police report and providing the authorities with as much information as you can about the incident will improve the chances of the police apprehending the driver.

Call the police as soon as possible and make a report of the accident. Insurance companies typically require customers to make police reports before they will submit a claim as a “hit and run.”

Gather Contact Information from Witnesses

If you are not seriously injured, talk to anyone who may have witnessed the accident. Gather contact information from as many witnesses as you can along with any information they can provide about the accident.

Report the Accident to Your Insurance Company

Once you have made a police report and spoken to witnesses, you should report the incident to your insurance company. Because this is a hit and run accident, the claim will be handled under your policy.

Contact a Lawyer

If you were injured in the hit and run accident, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. If the driver is identified, he or she could be held liable for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, damages and emotional distress.
