Why do drivers flee the scene of hit-and-run accidents?

To understand why hit-and-run accidents can often be complex legal cases, it’s important to understand why drivers often flee the scene of an accident. Some of the most common reasons why include:

  • The other driver didn’t have a driver’s license.
  • The other driver’s license has expired.
  • The other driver doesn’t have car insurance.
  • The other driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • The other driver was driving a stolen car or committing a crime at the time of the crash.
  • The other driver has an outstanding arrest warrant.

These are just some of the reasons why these car accidents often turn out to be complicated legal cases. That’s why we want to help you.

What makes hit-and-run accidents so complicated?

What should I do after my hit-and-run accident?

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident caused by a hit-and-run driver, we strongly recommend that you take the following steps to protect your rights and your health:

  • Do not try to follow the hit-and-run driver. You could put your life at risk.
  • Call the police immediately and tell them you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident.
  • Write down as much as you can remember about the car and driver who caused your crash, including:
    • Type of car
    • Color of car
    • Direction car was heading
    • Driver’s gender, race or any other distinguishing attributes
  • If someone saw your accident, get the witness’ full name, address and phone number.
  • Call your insurance company and tell them you have been in a hit-and-run accident.
  • Keep your comments brief when talking to the insurance company.
  • Do not discuss your accident with friends or co-workers.
  • Do not post anything on social media about your hit-and-run accident.
