Hit and Run Accident | Walnut Creek - Bay Area Lawyers

If you're the victim of a hit and run car accident, you should call the police as quickly as possible, and report the incident to your insurance company the first 48 hours after the accident. A police report can be vital to the success of your case. Be sure to ask the officers to take the statements of the other drivers. In addition, you should take pictures of your damaged car.

If you were physically injured in the hit and run accident by a drunk driver, you might also qualify for crime victim's compensation as the survivor of assault with a motor vehicle.

Three Reasons Why People Leave Car Accident Scenes

There are generally only three reasons for any driver to leave the scene of an accident in which they were at fault:

  • They're scared or spooked.
  • They're intoxicated.
  • They're uninsured.

If you have the proper insurance coverage, your insurance company can pay for the damage to your car or truck, but you still may have to pay the deductible. The recovery of medical and lost wages damages under your uninsured motorist coverage is complicated, and you need an attorney to help determine coverage and obtain the maximum compensation available for your injuries and losses. If you do not present your claim correctly, your insurance company might not be obligated to pay you.

You should go to a doctor even if you are not aware of any serious injury. Sometimes there can be a delayed onset of the effects of injuries and unless they are identified by a doctor, they can continue to get worse. At the Injury Law Center in Walnut Creek, California, we can refer you to a doctor who will ascertain the extent of your injuries, provide appropriate treatment, and monitor and document your recovery.
