I was injured in a hit-and-run – now what?

If the driver didn’t stop after the collision, this is called a hit-and-run and can make recovering damages for your injuries more difficult. Here is a quick checklist of the first things you should do if you are the victim of a hit-and-run:

  1. Call the police and make a formal report. That way, the police can begin an investigation.
  2. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident.
  3. Give all of the information you have collected to the police.
  4. Seek medical attention.

If you are later able to identify and locate the hit-and-run driver, or if the police are able to identify them from their investigation, it is critical that you discuss your options with a personal injury attorney, especially if you suffered significant injuries from the accident.  

Representing car accident victims require a team of aggressive investigators and lawyers all devoting their maximum effort to their clients. At The Law offices of Eric S.
