I’m a Pedestrian Involved In a Hit-and-Run Accident. What Do I Do?
If you or a loved one were involved in a Connecticut hit-and-run pedestrian accident, you might be unsure of what to do.
- Get medical help. If you were involved in a hit-and-run accident as a pedestrian, seek medical help immediately.
- Call the police. The police will want to know any information you can provide on the make, model and license plate of the vehicle that struck you.
- Call an experienced lawyer. In some pedestrian accident cases, the driver is totally at fault; while in other cases the pedestrian and driver share responsibility. Each accident is unique and different. An experienced lawyer will help you understand your options.
