Tips to Remember if You Are a Victim of a Hit and Run

Standard protocol following a car accident is of course for both drivers to pull over and exchange information. But what happens if someone hits your vehicle and then attempts to flee? As infuriating as this might be, it's important to keep your cool. Keep your head screwed on straight and there may be legal options that you can pursue in the future. Here are some tips to keep in mind following a car crash in which the other driver tries to pull a hit and run.

Don't Follow Them

Your natural instinct when someone tries to flee in this situation is to hit the gas pedal yourself? How dare they try to do this to you, right? But trying to chase someone down after your vehicle is damaged is not a smart idea, plus you don't know what the person is so scared of. Perhaps they have an arrest warrant out for a violent crime. Is that something you want to find out the hard way? Stay put at the scene but be observant. Note the vehicle model and color and if you are lucky, maybe you'll get a glimpse of their vehicle plate as they drive away.

Contact the Police or Medical Assistance

Assuming you stayed put like you are supposed to, it's time to let the professionals do the chasing. Give a description of the car and any other information you have. If you have been injured in the accident, request medical assistance as well. It's important to stay focused on treating any injuries you have right away, especially if you want to pursue legal action against the other driver after they are caught. If you try to chase the other driver without first getting your injuries taken care of, the other side could argue in a personal injury case that this must mean you weren't that badly injured.

Contact a Car Crash Attorney

Hopefully, the police will catch the hit and run driver and get you their information. Your next step is to contact a hit and run attorney or any car crash attorney that specializes in personal injury. Your attorney might be able to help you reach out to witnesses or in some cases could even help you track down the hit and run driver if the police aren't immediately helpful. Let your attorney talk to the insurance companies and discuss your next available steps.
