Try to get the License Plate and any description of the vehicle.
Call the Police
Whether you were able to get the license plate or not from the car that hit you please call the police to make a report. There are many reasons to call the police for a hit and run and they are all for your benefit. One of the reasons to call the police is if there were any damages to the city. This means when the other car hit you, did you hit the center divider or did you hit a stop sign, a tree or any object that belongs to the city. If there is no record of a hit and run, or of you not causing this accident, the city may send you a bill or court date for you to pay the damages. Another reason for calling the police is to create a record for the incident and to identify that it was not your fault. This record can later be used should you want to claim Uninsured Motorist. A third reason to call the police and create a record of this reckless driver is to protect you. This driver can cause more damages elsewhere and someone may identify him. If your name is with the police, the police will notify you and you can obtain the information of the vehicle that hit you. Any additional questions, the Rahgozar Law Firm can answer at no cost to you. Call or text our 24/7 line 832–205–5978.
