What Do You Do if You’re Involved in a Hit and Run Accident?
Unfortunately, hit and run accidents happen all the time. Whether it’s an irresponsible person, someone without insurance, or someone who is in a hurry, sometimes people cause an accident and then leave the scene without stopping to identify themselves or offer any assistance. In some other cases, a hit and run accident can be far worse.
There have been reports of hit and run carjackings in Cleveland Heights, Beachwood, and across the country. In these cases, a nefarious person crashes into another car and then steals it when the other driver gets out to exchange insurance information.

First, dialing 911 and inform the authorities that you have been involved in a car accident. Remain in your car until the police arrive. What if the person who hits you takes off before you have the chance to exchange information? We recommend that you have uninsured/under-insured insurance coverage. If you have this coverage and the person who hits you leaves the scene of the crime, you will be covered for any bodily harm that may have occurred as a result of this accident.
