Protecting your rights after a hit-and-run accident in Maryland

In Maryland, a hit-and-run accident occurs when a driver leaves the scene of an accident.

There are several things you want to do after a hit-and-run accident to make sure you protect your rights.

What to Do after the Hit-and-Run

Immediately after a hit-and-run accident, you want to collect as much information about the other vehicle.  Make, model, color, and description of the driver.

File a Police Report

First, you should contact the police at the scene and request an officer come to your location.  You want to file a detailed accident report with the police officer.

It’s important to make a record of the accident so that your insurance company has it in their file.  They may not believe you if you don’t file an accident report or contact the police.

Contact your insurance company

Next, you want to contact your insurance company and file a claim.  This will be an uninsured motorist claim since you won’t have the hit-and-run driver’s insurance information.  This is okay, because this is what that type of insurance is for.

Consult a personal injury attorney

Finally, you should consult a personal injury attorney to handle your claim.  An attorney can manage and set up your hit-and-run claim.  An attorney can also help you make sure that you take advantage of all types of coverage.
