After a Hit and Run Accident in Bucks County or Montgomery County, Pennsylvania

Leaving the scene of a car accident is extremely dangerous and is also against the law. Pennsylvania law has set requirements that everyone must follow after a crash, which include:

– Stop your vehicle or remain stopped
– Give reasonable aid to anyone who appears injured
– Exchange contact & insurance information with anyone involved in the accident
– In the event of serious damage, or if anyone sustained any injuries or was killed, you must contact the police immediately
– If police do not respond, you must fill out an accident report and submit it to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
– Failing to properly report a car accident to either party can result in serious consequences, including the suspension of your driver’s license.

In worst hit and run cases, drivers will not even stop to see if anyone was seriously injured, instead, they will drive off which leads the accident victim to fend for themselves. This abandonment could cause injuries to be more severe or can even cause death if emergency services are not contacted soon enough. Leaving the scene of a car accident is not only dangerous, but it is also a crime in Pennsylvania. If you leave the scene of an accident, you could be charged with the following crimes:

– Felony of the third degree, if serious injuries occurred
– Felony of the second degree, if someone was killed
– Misdemeanor. Only if no injuries occurred

Felony charges can determine time in jail and significant fines. Additionally, if authorities determine that the hit and run driver was drunk and or under the influence of drugs, the penalties will increase.

While the local law enforcement fines criminals penalties for drivers who hit and run, these penalties do not go towards damages the victims of these accidents. Due to this fact, victims of hit and run cases will likely need to file a personal injury claims against the driver or the drivers insurance company to seek compensation for all of their losses. This may include paying for medical bills, lost income and lost future wages.

In such cases, in addition to the requested damages, the court may award penalties to punish the driver who fled, in order to deter such behavior in the future. These are typically referred to as punitive damages. If the hit and run driver is found, an experienced attorney at Kat’s, Jamison & Associates can help you pursue the maximum compensation possible based on the circumstances of your car accident.

Hit and Run Drivers Can Disappear

Aside from the criminal implications of a hit and run, these accidents often cause serious issues for victims of hit and run accident. Unfortunately, a driver who flees the scene of an accident is often never found. Following a car accident, victims are often disoriented. The right thing to do is stop and make sure the other driver is okay, but sometimes this does not happen at all. The last thing on a car accident victim’s mind is writing down the other persons information. It is important to get the license plate number as soon as you can, just in case if the driver decides to suddenly flee.

If the other driver flees the scene of the accident and no other witnesses saw the license plate number, there is a slim chance of finding the driver after that point. In this case, victims of hit and run accident are left with few options. Drivers in hit and run accidents typically flee the scene because they know that they did something wrong. If a driver was drunk, the accident might of frightened them, so they flee the scene in order not to get arrested. Also, many hit and run drivers do not have the proper insurance coverage required by Pennsylvania law and therefore do not want to face the consequences. In the worst cases, drivers of stolen vehicles almost never stop as required.

Regardless of the reasoning stemming behind leaving the scene of an accident, this act causes unnecessary and extensive harm to victims. Besides the potential physical damages, there are also many financial consequences.

After you and your passengers are out of immediate danger. You should first call an experienced and knowledgable car accident attorney who has handled hit and run cases in the past. At Kats, Jamison & Associates we understand all relevant insurance laws in Pennsylvania and can help you file your personal injury claim.

Issues After a Hit and Run Accident In Bucks County, Montgomery County & Northeast Philadelphia.

In some instances, if your insurance policy does not contain a “no-fault” clause, it is then your duty to prove that you cannot identify the other driver. Additionally, you must prove that the other driver was at fault, beyond a reasonable doubt. Then finally, you must prove the monetary value of your claim by calculating the cost of your injuries, lost wages, and potential cost of future care, medications, and medical equipment.

It might be difficult to prove that a driver cannot be identified. This may include taking statements from witnesses and pulling surveillance footage from cameras in the area. Witnesses will have to be in agreement that the driver fled the scene and was not identified. Proving who was at fault is based on laws of negligence, which can include drunk driving, distracted driving, and or speeding. It is usually the case that leaving the scene of an accident creates the implication that the fleeing driver was at fault. Regardless, you must also provide additional evidence to prove negligence.

What should I do immediately after I’ve been involved in a car accident?

Call the police and make sure an ambulance is sent as soon as possible. Make sure everyone involved in the accident is conscious and responsive. Stay at the scene even if the accident isn’t serious, the police should be called regardless and a police report should be filed. It is important when speaking to the police that you stick to the facts, do not speculate, and most importantly do not admit any fault. Make sure you take as many pictures as you can with your cell phone. Also, we suggest taking a picture of the other person’s license plate, their drivers license, and insurance information. The pictures should document any damage that is caused by both vehicles. Seek medical attention as soon as possible if injured, even if you do not feel any pain, you may be in a state of shock and could experience medical issues later on.

What should I do before leaving the scene of an accident?

After a car accident, it is important to collect as much information as possible. Document the names, addresses, license plates of any other vehicle involved in the accident. Either document the weather conditions at the time of the accident or take pictures of the scene surrounding the accident. If you believe that road maintenance or lack thereof was a factor in the accident – it is important to document this as well.

The team at Kats, Jamison & Associates will analyze your car/motorcycle accident and determine whether or not you have a claim.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case regarding a car accident?

If you are experiencing pain, injury, or financial damages as a result of someone else’s negligence. You may have a personal injury case. If the other driver was at fault or failed to follow the legal rules of the road – our car accident attorneys may be able to prove that the other party is liable for those damages. For example, if you were rear-ended in a car accident, typically the other driver is responsible for that accident and the insurance company could be liable for any damages

What should I expect the first few days following a car accident?

Within the first few days, you will receive communications from both your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company. You may be contacted by your health insurance company, doctors, and even attorneys. The other driver’s insurance company may request that you sign medical authorizations so they can retrieve your medical records. Before you speak to any of these people or sign any documents, it is important that you seek legal counsel.

How do I pay for medical expenses while my case is pending?

You may have a difficult time paying for your medical expenses, even if you have health insurance. Make sure to bill any treatment as you normally would through your healthcare provider. Additionally, you may have medical payment coverage under your car insurance plan. This could be used to cover your co-pays and other medical expenses that your health insurance company may not cover initially.

What type of compensation should I expect to receive for my car accident case?

This is a difficult question to answer because it depends on many factors. If we are successful in proving that the other party is liable for your injuries and damages, you could be compensated for medical bills and any other hospital costs, lost wages, costs of rehabilitation and physical therapy, disability or disfigurement, pain and suffering, wrongful death, including loss of financial support and any other out of pocket expense that was related to your accident.

How long will it take to complete my case?

Depending on the severity of your injuries and the length of time you need to heal from your injuries will determine the length of your claim. We also have to factor in the willingness of the other party to settle as they make their initial offer.
