  • Locate witnesses – Most accidents will typically get a lot of attention.

  • Get pictures – While providing your story to insurance companies, pictures will help you provide evidence of the damage. More on that, take photos from different angles, including a full view of the vehicle and close-ups of any dings and scratches. Do not forget to take pictures of the paint left by the other car if there is any.  Look for any evidence of the other vehicle involved.

WHAT IS A HIT-AND-RUN? 

A hit and run accident are when the person responsible flees from the scene of the crash. Sadly, some people have been known to flee even though it was only a fender bender.  

Also, a person could experience fines, criminal charges, license revocation, or even jail time. Although, this all depends on what state you live in. 

Since the penalties can be severe, they are often the reason that a driver may choose to flee. Here is a look at a few penalty examples:  

  • The most obvious reason is they lack auto insurance coverage. 
  • They know that they have just broken the law and are afraid.  
  • They have been using drugs or alcohol. 
  • The vehicle they are driving is stolen. 

Rest assured that being involved in a car accident is more than enough to ruin anyone’s day. However, the experience can be especially disorienting if you are involved in a hit-and-run. 

Hit and run accidents can happen so quickly. Furthermore, you might just barely realize that your vehicle’s been hit before you get out to see that the other car is driving off into the distance.
