What to do after a hit-and-run

Being involved in any car accident in Connecticut can be a terrifying experience, but a hit-and-run can leave you wondering what you should do next. Some of the most natural reactions, such as following the person, can actually land you in more trouble. We at The Law Office of George H. Romania can work to help you receive all the compensation you need no matter what type of accident you are involved in.

 

According to Infinity Auto, there are a few simple steps you need to remember to take immediately after you are hit. First, make sure you are in a safe place. You may need to get out of your car and off to the side of the road to avoid being hit again. If your car will still drive, it is wise to move it out of the way of traffic so that you do not cause another accident.

 

If possible, you should also try to write down the other driver’s license plate number. This can help law enforcement officers locate the other driver and hold them responsible for damages to your vehicle. Another great idea is to take a picture of the other vehicle if you can. Taking pictures of the scene of the accident and areas where damage was inflicted on your vehicle can also help law enforcement officials determine what happened and who is at fault.

 

Another important tip is to stay there. If you do not, you could also be charged with leaving the scene of the accident. For more information on this topic, please visit our web page.
