Guidelines to follow after a hit-and-run car accident

It is never a good idea to flee a car accident. If a driver intentionally leaves the scene of an accident, he or she has committed a hit-and-run accident. In California, if you have committed a hit-and-run accident, you will be on probation for three years, serving a sentence of six months and paying a fine of $1000.00. Examples of a hit-and-run accident include a car hitting an incoming vehicle and driving away or a driver hitting a pedestrian and leaving the scene. Another example is a driver hitting a parked car and failing to leave any contact information and purposely driving away from the parking lot.

After your accident, write down the time of the accident, where it took place and the damage caused to the vehicle. You may want to start jotting down notes regarding the model of the car, its year and the license plate number. You may want to consider looking for eye-witnesses who can help you with your hit-and-run case.

If you are still unable to identify the person who hit you, or that person financially is unable to pay for the damages on your vehicle, then you might want to consider filing a claim with your car insurance company. Many car insurance companies have an uninsured motorist coverage, which may cover hit-and-runs. You may file a claim for a hit-and-run with the driver's insurance company.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a hit-and-run accident, you may be able to claim compensation for your damages. You may want to contact an experienced attorney who can help you fight your case and get you the justice you deserve.
