Hit and Run Accident 

Hit and run accidents in which someone is injured are particularly devastating because the identity of the driver responsible for the injury and damage is not even known. Often, the victim of such an accident must try to get compensation from his/her own uninsured motorist insurance. But if that insurance company should drag its heels or offer a settlement that is less than what is truly needed, that's when it's time to call a hit and run accident attorney. This attorney will be your legal voice and will work toward getting you the compensation you truly need.

Legal Obligation of Drivers Involved in Accidents


In the states of Missouri and Kansas, all parties involved in a traffic accident must remain at the scene if there is either property damage or an injury or death. Failure to do so can result in criminal charges if the party who left the scene is found. These charges can be in the form of a misdemeanor or felony and can carry prison time as well as large fines. However, even if the guilty driver is found and charged, the victim must still pursue an injury claim with an insurance company. An experienced hit and run attorney can help you file and process this claim and negotiate with the insurance company so you can get the best outcome.


What to Do After a Hit and Run Accident

After a hit and run accident, stay at the scene and notify the police. Seek medical care for those who are injured. Write down any details that you can recall about the vehicle that hit you, including make and model, license plate letters or numbers, color of vehicle or similar. Speak with any witnesses at the scene and get their contact information. Take photos of the accident scene and look for any parts broken off of the other vehicle. Check for any local security cameras that may have recorded the incident. Also, be sure to keep documentation of all medical visits and a daily log of any pain and suffering that you have experienced as a result of the accident.
