What to Do If You’re in a Hit and Run Accident

Legal Information in Pennsylvania

Normally when you’re in a car accident you exchange insurance information with the other driver. If you’re hurt, the other driver will work to see to it that you receive the emergency care you need. What do you do, though, when you’re injured and the other driver leaves?

First, it is important to ensure that you and other injured parties receive needed medical care. A doctor can confirm whether or not medical care is needed, and can document any injuries.

It is also important that you contact the police. Police officers will create an accident report number and produce a report that will further document the facts of your accident.

It is also highly important that you contact an attorney. An attorney can:

  • Determine who is liable for damages and losses..
  • Conduct an investigation that may identify the party that fled the scene.
  • Determine the value of your claim.
  • Assess insurance coverage.
  • Negotiate and litigate for the highest-possible compensation for your injuries.
