Identifying Information in a Hit-and-Run Accident
After a hit and run, it’s important to get as much identifying information as you can about the vehicle. This may help the police locate the driver and get justice in the case of a child's injury. For help with your case, contact an injury law firm in Atlanta.
Types of Identifying Information after a Hit and Run
The following are some of the types of identifying information about the vehicle that can be helpful in a hit and run case:
- direction it was going;
- license plate number;
- damage to it; and
- other distinguishable marks (rust, discolorations, bumper sticker, etc.).
In addition, information such as the location of the accident and anything about the driver’s appearance that you can recall also may be helpful. If there were witnesses, get their names and phone numbers and ask if they can remember anything useful about the car or driver.
Hit and runs involving child injuries can be especially disheartening, but you may still ask the child questions that could help identify and find the driver.
