What Evidence Do You Need to Collect Immediately After a Hit-and-Run Accident?

There are some things that you need to collect immediately after a hit-and-run accident so that you have evidence of what happened. This includes:

Call the Police
If you’ve been in a hit-and-run accident, the first thing you should do is call the police and wait for them to arrive. While waiting for police to arrive, write down as much information about yourself as possible—this includes your name, address, phone number, and insurance company info.

Remain Where You Are
If possible, try to take photos of any damage done to your vehicle or property. You should also take down the license plate number of any vehicles that may have been involved in the accident, as well as any identifying characteristics about those drivers (including their clothing and physical appearance).

Write Down Details While You Wait
While waiting for police assistance, write down all details of what happened as soon as possible after they occur—especially those that pertain directly to identifying the vehicle (make/model), license plate number (if visible), driver description (if possible), and any other details.
