|HIT-AND-RUNS: THE BASICS|
|Posted on: Mar. 08, 2017 in Accidents, Auto Insurance|
A hit-and-run accident is exactly what it sounds like. When a motorist causes an accident and knows it, and then leaves the scene, this is a hit-and-run. Whether the driver hits a car, a pedestrian or causes property damage, the driver is required to stay at the scene to take responsibility for the accident.
If you are the victim of a hit-and-run, you may initially be confused and disoriented. Knowing what to do before an accident happens will give you a clearer idea of what you can do if you find yourself in this situation.
Being the victim of a hit-and-run can be scary and frustrating. Making sure you have adequate insurance coverage for yourself can help you in case you find yourself in this situation. Of course, if you are involved in an accident, stay at the scene. While you should not admit fault after an accident, you should assess damages, alert authorities, and check on other drivers. While you hope you never are involved in an accident, knowing what to do can help ease some of the aggravation.
