What to Do After a Hit-and-Run Accident

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on May 31, 2013

If you have ever been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, you know it’s a stressful experience. You might be injured, and your car is damaged, but there is no one there to blame. In order to get the justice you are entitled to, it’s important to follow these steps after a hit-and-run accident:

  • Record evidence: Use your phone or camera to take pictures of where the accident occurred and the damage to your vehicle. If there were any witnesses who saw the accident occur, take down their story and contact information. If you saw the driver who hit you, write down any details you remember about them or their vehicle.
  • Alert the police: After any car accident, it’s important to contact the police so they can file a police report. A police report is an unbiased perspective of the car accident from an official, so it’s vital evidence for your insurance company to see or if you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Don’t follow the hit-and-run driver: It’s very tempting to want to chase the driver who hit you, but because of your adrenaline and anger, you could end up in another car accident. Also, you don’t know what the driver is thinking. The driver might be dangerous or under the influence of drugs or alcohol and could cause you serious harm.
  • Contact a hit-and-run accident attorney: It’s easy for insurance companies to not give you the compensation you deserve after a hit-and-run accident. That’s why it’s vital to contact a hit-and-run accident attorney immediately after the accident who can help you get the compensation you deserve for your emotional and physical trauma.
