Know Your Rights Following a Hit and Run
Experiencing a motor vehicle accident can be a devastating experience, especially when you’re injured as a result of a hit and run. Even if the driver at fault escapes and doesn't take responsibility for the accident right away, you still have legal rights that protect you and help you seek compensation for your pain and suffering.
Finding the Hit and Run Driver
When it comes to identifying the driver who fled the accident scene, you cannot rely solely on the police investigation to bring this person to justice. Your legal team can use all tools available to run an investigation to track down the party at fault.
You may increase the probability of finding the responsible driver by taking certain actions after the accident, such as:
- Capture vehicle information such as color, make & model, license plate number, and driver description.
- Speak to witnesses and check for possible footage of a security or traffic camera.
- Take pictures of your damaged vehicle since it can provide clues such as the other vehicle's paint color.
