Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident and the other driver has left the scene of the crash, you need to act quickly. It is best if you can get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses along with a vehicle description. Contact the police immediately and file a police report. Take photos of the crash scene and the damage to your vehicle or property. Contact any businesses or homes in the area that may have video surveillance of what occurred and the vehicle that fled. All of this will assist the police in locating the hit and run driver. Finally you should contact a car accident attorney to help guide you through this difficult process.”
