Hit and Run Car Accident
Hit-and-Run accidents can be some of the worst accidents that a victim has to deal with. Victims can include pedestrians and/or cyclists, and serious or fatal bodily injuries can result from a hit-and-run accident. As a result of a hit-and-run accident, victims are left with no one to blame or to pay for medical expense, property repair and lost wages.

It is illegal in Rhode and Massachusetts to leave the scene of a car accident, even if no injury results from the accident. You are obligated to report an accident and wait to for the police to arrive and file a report. It is also important to try to obtain as much information about the other car as possible, such taking the license plate of the car and make and model. If the driver is located a claim can be filed against their insurance company. However, if the driver is not located a claim maybe filed against other insurance policies in effect in the household, or a claim maybe filed against your own insurance carrier or other at fault defendants.
