After a car crash, you may feel confused or disoriented and forget to exchange information. You may also be frustrated by the incident and forget to exchange information with the other driver. Despite the circumstances, you need the other party’s contact information to file an auto accident claim.
Consider speaking to a trusted car accident attorney if unsure how to proceed after the collision.
If you fail to exchange information after an accident, you may not receive the compensation you deserve. Similarly, the other driver might not claim responsibility or cover your damages, making you pay the damages out of pocket.
Here’s what you can do to salvage the situation:
If the other motorist leaves the scene without exchanging information, you can file a claim through your uninsured motorist coverage. Unlike other insurance coverage that requires details of the at-fault party, the option is available without the other driver’s insurance information.
Alternatively, you can file a lawsuit against the other driver. In such a case, engage a car accident lawyer with experience handling hit-and-run cases.
While feeling disoriented after a car accident is normal, gathering as much information as possible is important. This information can help prove that the other party was at fault.
Some information required to process hit-and-run claims include injuries, property damage, witness testimony, total damages, and insurance information of the other driver.
Any time you’re in an accident, write down the following information for a seamless claim process:
If you left the accident scene without exchanging information, the insurance company could use it to deny your claim.
Even so, you can protect your rights by speaking to an experienced car accident attorney at The Barnes Firm about your legal options.
