Hit and Run Accidents

We are sure that you have a lot of questions relating to Hit and Run cases, it is especially important that you speak to an attorney immediately.  South Carolina has specific laws on whether automobile insurance will cover certain hit and run cases.   Do not give voice recorded statements to any insurance company until you get proper advice from an attorney.

If you have been involved in a hit and run accident, do not try to follow the negligent driver.  The driver may be dangerous and should not be confronted.  Here are some other helpful tips if you have been the victim of a hit and run accident:

  • Call 911 right away and describe the event to the police.
  • Try to remember as many details as possible about the other vehicle and driver, including the license plate number.
  • Contact an experienced and aggressive South Carolina hit and run victim attorney.
  • Gather contact information from any witnesses, including names, phone numbers, and addresses.
  • Try to protect any evidence from the accident site.
  • If you have a camera, take pictures of the accident scene.

Some of the related factors in hit-and-run accidents are:

  • Alcohol or drug use by the driver
  • Cell phones
  • Drivers with suspended or expired licenses
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • High traffic volume on roadways
  • Inattentiveness
  • Lack of respect & personal responsibility
