Addressing Unique Complications That Arise After Hit-And-Run Accidents

Hit-and-run accident cases are usually more complicated than other motor vehicle accidents. Although the victims may have been seriously injured by reckless drivers, they can rarely describe the drivers or cars in great detail. Identifying the at-fault parties and holding them accountable for their actions is a job for a highly skilled personal injury attorney. This means talking to Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation.

According to the California State Highway Patrol, 375 hit-and-run collision fatalities were recorded in 2017, with 20,739 injuries. Nationally, the number of fatal hit-and-run crashes has been rising since 2009, according to a USA Today analysis based on NHTSA data. Tragically, many hit-and-run drivers were driving without a license, driving on a suspended license, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or facing other pressures that made leaving someone injured on the road seem preferable to staying at the scene of the accident.

Helpful Tips Following A Hit-And-Run Accident

There are many things you can do in order to build the strongest possible case. They include:

  • Remember and write down as much information and detail about the accident as you can
  • If there are witnesses to the accident ask for names and contact information
  • Take photos if you have the ability to visually record the aftermath of the accident or collision
  • Do not chase the perpetrator, this can get you into another accident and put others at risk
  • File a police report and contact an attorney, to begin the process of holding the person accountable and getting care
