What if I believe I was the victim of a hit and run in Florida?
If you believe that you are a victim of a hit and run car accident in Florida, the first thing you want to do is to attempt to locate the driver from that crash. If you have anyway to describe the driver, be it a description of the person behind the wheel, be it a description of the vehicle itself, or if possible, the tag number. The second thing you want to do is contact law enforcement. The law enforcement officer will come to the scene, interview you, and find out what happened, and will attempt to locate the person that caused the accident. If you have uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage, that coverage will provide for your damages even in a hit and run accident.
