Being injured in a car accident is always traumatic—but it’s especially hard to endure when the person who injures you simply drives away, evading any kind of accountability. Sadly, such incidents, known as hit and run accidents, happen all too commonly.

Hit and Run Accidents Can Happen to Anyone

Recently, a hit and run accident left one California woman seriously injured. Here’s what happened: The woman was in the City Heights area of San Diego when she was hit by a pickup truck. The truck sped away, and its driver remains unidentified. As for the woman, she was taken to the hospital to be treated for multiple injuries, including broken bones. Her current condition is not known.This is just one example among many of the simple truth that hit and run accidents can happen at any time, and to anyone—and the results can include serious injury and even death. What’s more, you can be left flustered, uncertain of how to proceed or how to see justice done.

In these situations, it’s important to contact legal experts who can help you get the compensation you need. At AA Accident Attorneys, we help those who have been injured in hit and run cases providing the resources, the strategy, and the aggressive representation needed to gain the maximum monetary compensation.

What to Do if You Are Injured in a Hit and Run Accident

Because hit and run accidents can happen to anyone, it’s important to be prepared. Here’s what our California car accident lawyers recommend.

  • Pull over safely. First and foremost, and unless injury prevents you from doing so, get to a safe area to pull off the road. Don’t ever try to chase or apprehend the other motorist. That will only make things worse!
  • Call the police. You’re always going to be on better legal standing if you call the police, tell them what happened, and let them file a report.You may not feel like you have enough information—you may not have gotten the license plate number, for instance—but always call anyway!
  • Write down some notes. Take a minute to jot down any notes on what happened—what you saw, what you remember of the vehicle that hit you, where exactly the incident happened, etc. This can help jog your memory as you give your account of the event later on.
  • Seek witnesses. Sometimes, there won’t be any. But if you’re hit in a crowded area and you can find someone who is willing to provide their testimony to the police, that can really help your case.
  • File a claim. You may or may not have insurance coverage for a hit and run. It just depends on your policy. You may want to review your coverage before filing a claim—and if you have questions or are in any way unsure, reach out for legal assistance.

Indeed, a car accident attorney will often be necessary to help you receive your due compensation. If you’re injured anyway in California, we hope you’ll call AA Accident Attorneys. Reach out to us any time you need to talk about a claim or have any further questions about hit and run cases.
