Hit & Run Accidents Frequently Asked Questions

What are the first steps if I’m a victim of a hit and run?
First and foremost, remaining calm is important. Immediately call the police department and insist on an officer being dispatched to the accident scene. If you are hurt, you should seek immediate medical attention. Your injuries may not always be always apparent due to the adrenaline from the accident. If you can, try to gather as much information from witnesses, including their name and contact information. As soon as you are safe, then contact an attorney and schedule an initial consultation. Make sure to bring all your important documentation with you from the accident.

Will my uninsured motorist coverage pay me if I am injured in a Texas hit and run accident?
Yes, subject to the conditions of your insuring agreement. It can be helpful to take a look at the terms of your insurance contract. After the accident, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. Many times, insurance companies will fight to cover you even when they are obligated to. An attorney can advocate on your behalf and get the money you deserve. If you have it, bring a copy of your uninsured motorist coverage agreement with you when you speak to your attorney.

How long will it take to settle my case?
Truthfully, a hit and run accident case can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. There is no set time period. However, most cases last a minimum of 2-3 months. If your insurance can cover the damages, and the liability is clear, you can expect a relatively quick case. In most cases, both liability and insurance coverage become complicated. However, you should be wary if your insurance carrier seems to be drawing out the case.
