What to Do After a Hit & Run Accident


In order to recover monetary damages for the accident and your injuries, you must contact law enforcement immediately. When filing a police report, tell the officer as much information as you can.

What is the make and model of the vehicle in question? What was its color? Did you happen to remember the license plate number? The more information you gather and disclose to law enforcement – as well as your attorney – the more likely they can track down the perpetrator.

On the other hand, if you are unable to identify the at-fault driver, you may still obtain financial compensation from your own insurance company. However, you must understand that your insurance company is only looking out for their own best interests, which means that they will find any way possible to reduce your settlement, or perhaps deny your claim altogether. To protect your best interests, it is imperative to obtain legal services from a lawyer.
