South Carolina Hit & Run Accident Attorneys

Fighting for Injured Individuals for Over 25 Years

Being involved in a car accident is always a frightening experience. When the other involved motorist doesn’t stop or fails to provide you with their contact information, the ordeal can be even more overwhelming.

South Carolina has strict laws regarding hit and run accidents. Any time a motorist leaves the scene of the accident without providing their personal information—including their insurance information—or attempting to assist the injured, it is considered a hit and run. In addition to criminal penalties, the liable motorist faces civil consequences. Pursuing compensation for a hit and run accident, however, can be incredibly difficult. It is crucial that you discuss your case with an experienced hit and run accident attorney in South Carolina.

What to Do If You Are Involved in a Hit & Run Accident

Individuals involved in hit and run accidents have several options. First and foremost, you should make sure that you and anyone else in your vehicle or another involved vehicle are okay. Seek medical attention following the accident, even if you believe that your injuries are only minor. Some injuries can take days or weeks to appear, so it is crucial that you receive care from a qualified medical professional as soon as possible.

In addition to seeking medical attention, if you are involved in a hit and run accident, you should do the following:

  • Call the police and file an official accident report
  • If possible, note the vehicle make and model of the other involved driver, as well as the license plate number, a visual description of the person, and other relevant details
  • Provide any information you have about the hit and run driver and his/her vehicle to the police
  • If there were any witnesses to the accident, take down their statements and contact information
  • Report the accident to your own insurance company and look into your policy to determine what is covered by your mandatory uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage
  • Contact an attorney who has experience with hit and run accident claims

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is mandatory in South Carolina. This coverage can be used to cover the cost of your medical treatment, property damage, and other damages. See our Uninsured & Underinsured Claims page or contact our office to learn more.

Sound Legal Guidance You Can Rely On
