What Should I Do If I’m the Victim of a Hit-and-Run?

Car accidents, no matter how minor, can be as stressful as they are frightening. However, few are as rage-inducing as a hit-and-run accident. You see, in most situations, drivers involved in accidents can navigate their crashes in a respectful manner.

They can exchange information, determine the well-being of their passengers, and find a conclusion to their situation. By driving away, culprits in hit-and-run accidents deny this opportunity to their victims. So, what should you do in the event of a hit-and-run accident?
