If you were hit by a driver who fled the scene and did not stop to exchange information, this is called a hit and run.

What to Do if You Are in a Hit & Run Accident in New Jersey
Hit and run accidents can be extremely jolting, especially if you are hurt. It is important that you remain where you are and not try to follow the driver. The individual who caused the accident could be dangerous and you should trust the authorities to confront them.
After you have been hit by a driver who flees the scene, you should take the following steps:
- Call 911 and report the accident, providing as much information as you can right away before you forget.
- Ask witnesses if they are willing to speak on your behalf and ask for their contact information.
- Take any photographs you can of the scene, as well as your car.
Holding Hit & Run Drivers Accountable
As an injury victim, it can be difficult to recover damages for property damage and injuries since the driver fled the scene before giving you their information. Drivers often leave the scene of an accident because they were driving without proper insurance or a license. Regardless of the reason why the driver fled the scene, you deserve to receive proper medical treatment and have your expenses covered.
We are here to ensure you understand your options, protect your rights, and work to identify the at-fault driver. In some cases, underinsured or uninsured motorist protection may also help to cover your expenses.
