Important Steps to Take After a Hit and Run

It can be very scary to be hit by another driver and watch them peel out and drive away, especially if you were seriously injured in the collision. After the accident, there are a few things you must do in order to ensure your health, safety, and well-being:

  • Seek medical attention right away and keep all records of your accident and injury-related expenses. (Also log all time spent out of work and all lost pay, if applicable.)
  • While it is still fresh in your mind, write down everything you can possibly remember about the other car (make, model, year, color, license tag, distinguishing marks or dents, etc.)
  • Photograph the damage and have it inspected in order to see if it presents any additional insight about the car that hit you.
  • Seek out witnesses, such as nearby store owners or homeowners who may have surveillance video footage of the accident.

All of this information could prove very valuable in your case after you contact a car accident lawyer. The sooner after your accident that you can secure legal representation, the better your chances will be of seeing justice done. Let us help.
