The harsh reality is that hit-and-run accidents are more common than you may think. A hit and run is when a person is involved or causes a collision with another person, vehicle, or property and then flees without stopping to provide any of their information. The penalty for a hit and run varies by state. Depending on the severity of the hit and run, offending drivers can face significant fines and potentially felony charges. Often, the driver will flee the scene of the accident due to inadequate auto insurance or is wanted for other crimes.

What To Do After a Hit and Run Accident

If a victim of a hit and run, it is important to stay at the scene of the accident. Even if the damage appears to be minor or insignificant, it is best advised to remain at the scene. As a victim, note everything you can recall about the offending driver and their vehicle. Regardless of the circumstances of the accident, ask any witnesses to wait for the police to arrive.
