What to do After a Hit and Run (Infograph)

As with any personal injury case, it is best to not delay filing your claim. In order to make a hit and run accident claim, California law requires 1) that the accident be reported to the police, and 2) that YOUR Insurance company be notified within 24 hours. Otherwise, you may not be entitled to your Uninsured Motorist coverage under your policy.
