What happens if someone drives off after an accident?
If someone hits your car and then drives off without giving you any of their information, you will want to file a police report as soon as possible. You will need to have the police report in order to give it to the attorney who will help you to win a case. The attorney will work closely with the police department to establish who was responsible for the car accident and what charges, if any, need to be filed. You will then need to give a detailed description to the attorney about how the accident occurred and what happened immediately after the accident.
When the uninsured have an accident, they are most likely to try and leave the scene of a crime. You will need to write down any information about the car that hit you and the license plate number of the vehicle. This will help the department of motor vehicles to establish who owns the car and how to handle the case. It can cause the driver to have their license suspended. All of this will be discussed with you when you meet with the attorney who will be helping you with your case.
