Hit and Run Accidents
Being involved in a hit and run accident can be absolutely terrifying. You may be injured and to see the negligent person drive off can leave you with serious emotional distress. If you are involved in a hit and run accident, do the following:
- Remain calm and still.
- If you can, pull to the side of the road away from traffic.
- Call 911 and wait for medical aid.
- If there are witnesses, ask them for contact information.
- Get thoroughly checked by a medical professional.
- Contact a personal injury attorney.
