What to Do After a Hit and Run Accident in Texas

If you are injured in a hit and run accident in Texas, there are a few things you can do to ensure you are able to file a successful injury claim. If the other driver flees the scene, you may be left with costly medical bills and damage to your car, but there are still ways to potentially find the other driver or make a claim on your own uninsured motorist policy. 

Steps to Take After a Hit and Run Accident

If you have been in any type of accident, first check you and your passengers for injuries. Following that, here are a few steps to follow:

  • Be observant. Take note of anything you remember about the car that hit you or the person driving it, even general things like the color of the car or whether it was a man or woman or old or young person can help narrow down who the driver is.
  • Call the police. Have a police officer come to the scene of the accident to create a police report and document the time and location of the accident. This proves the accident happened and gives your testimony of the events. It’s possible that there are cameras at local businesses or other pieces of evidence that can be used to track down the driver of the other car.
  • Take pictures and video of the accident scene, including damaged vehicles, injuries, the street or intersection, and surroundings. If you can get a picture of the license plate, that can dramatically help the police or your personal injury lawyer find the other driver. The more evidence you have, the better.
  • Call a personal injury law firm like Carrollton Injury Law. A personal injury law firm like our team has the
    knowledge and experience to make sure you are financially compensated for your injuries, especially in hit and run accidents or other difficult scenarios.

Check Your Insurance Policy

Take a moment to check your car insurance policy and make sure you have uninsured motorist coverage. This can help you in the event of a hit and run accident or if you are involved in an accident with a driver who does not have insurance. While you’re at it, check the amount of your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage and consider increasing it. PIP is coverage you can use for treatment for your injuries, and you can make a PIP claim even if you are at fault for an accident.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
