Identifying a Hit & Run Driver
Before you get swept up in filing a claim and related litigation, there
may still be a chance that you can identify the hit and run driver and
hold them directly accountable for their actions. The first thing you
need to do after being struck by a driver who leaves before they can be
identified is call emergency responders, including the police. With their
assistance, you can get medical attention if necessary and begin the search
for the criminal motorist.
Try to tell the police the following information to help them track down
the hit and run driver:
Make, model, and color of vehicle.
Where on its frame the other car struck yours.
Direction it was heading when it left.
Basic information about the driver.
If you are lucky, the driver will be identified, caught, and arrested.
You will then be able to file a normal
car accident claim against them, either using their insurance for recoveries or suing them
in civil court directly.
When a Hit & Run Driver Escapes
Unfortunately, many hit and run accident cases do not end in favor of the
injured driver. A driver so set on not being held liable for their wrongdoing
is usually determined to escape and does. Not being able to identify the
driver does not mean the end of your case and the elimination of your
chances. If you have
uninsured-underinsured motorist insurance coverage, your own insurance provider should help you pay for
your damages. When or if they deny your claim, you should talk to me about
filing a lawsuit against them for the fair recovery you have been paying
for through monthly premiums.
