What To Do After a Hit and Run Accident
After hit and run accident, it’s important that you stay calm and follow this procedure. Once you’ve checked everyone for injuries, call 911. In some states, you are legally required to call the police even if it’s a minor fender-bender. The police officers will document the scene and fill out an accident report. This report will help you with your claims process so make sure you obtain a case ID from the police officer evaluating the scene.
In order to gather full information about the accident, it’s important that you yourself also document the damage done, preferably by taking photographic evidence of the damage to your vehicle and the accident scene. Since the vehicle involved did not stop at the scene, exchange information with any witnesses you may see such as full name and contact information. Document any information you remember about the vehicle that left the scene such as make and model.
