The moments following a motor vehicle accident can be confusing for those involved. This is particularly true when the accident is a hit and run. Just what do you do following such an incident? In this post we will provide some tips on what to do if you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident.
When a vehicle driven by an individual who is following the rules of the road is struck by another vehicle, it can be infuriating. When the second vehicle fails to stop and leaves the scene of the accident it adds insult in injury. In addition to morally being the right thing to do following a collision, legally, drivers involved in crashes must stop as soon as it is safe for them to do so. This is true regardless of whether the vehicle struck was occupied at the time of the crash.
