THE LAW BADGERS UNDERSTAND PHOENIX ARIZONA HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT CASES
WHAT IS A PHOENIX ARIZONA HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT?
When a driver hits you and then flees the scene, you have been involved in a Phoenix Arizona Hit and Run Accident.
What do you do?
If you are involved in a Phoenix Arizona hit and run accident, it is important not to chase the hit and run driver. Try to snap a photo or write down the hit and run driver’s license plate, vehicle make and model, the color of the vehicle, and any distinctive markings – including paint transfer, damage, bumper stickers, license plate holders, stickers on the window, etc. These details can be important in helping to identify the hit and run driver.
WHAT DO I DO?
A hit and run accident can be a very scary situation. Someone has just caused damage to your vehicle and you may have injuries. It’s important to maintain a level head and attempt to gather as much information as you can about the other driver. Call the Police immediately and do NOT leave the scene of the accident until the police have come and investigated.
Look for eye witnesses. These will be very important in developing not only your damages and injury case, but also potential criminal charges against the suspect. Take photos of the scene, your injuries, and the damage to your vehicle.
