Identifying Drivers in a Hit and Run Accident
What may be the biggest challenge in a hit and run case is identifying
the driver who was responsible for the crash. In an ideal situation, drivers
would stay close to the scene of an accident, report it to the police,
and contact emergency medical help if any injuries occurred. A person
can be charged with a hit and run by failing to do this.
If you are in a hit and run accident, we recommend the following:
- Alert the police immediately.
- Capture photos of the accident site, your vehicle, injuries, and any other damages.
- Provide details about the incident, including a description of the driver,
the vehicle, the driver’s license plate number, and other information
you believe may be relevant.
- Gather witness information, and jot down their contact information.
- Maintain any evidence from the scene of the accident, if at all possible.
If you are hurt from your hurt and run, do not try to follow the other
driver; the individual may show aggression and can threaten your safety.
Preferably, the driver who fled the scene of an accident would come forward
and assume responsibility. Otherwise, victims would need to look to their
own insurance companies, likely under the underinsured motorist coverage.
As someone injured in a hit and run collision, you may be entitled to
receive the maximum compensation to help cover all costs due to the accident.
