CT hit and run accidents are an unfortunate reality in our modern world. People get involved in accidents and they don't want to take responsibility for them, so they flee the scene (if their car is still functioning). They are very common, with some estimates placing them as accounting for as much as 11% of all car accidents.
Drivers flee for many reasons. Some of them are relatively innocent people who panic because they do not know how to handle the situation. Others are the result of a DUI, where the driver knows that they are facing serious criminal penalties. Often this is not that driver's first DUI. Other times, people flee the scene because they lack insurance. By law every driver is required to carry insurance, but according to a recent study, about 12% of Connecticut drivers do not carry the required insurance. Although this is lower than the national estimate of 14.6%, it is still a high number of drivers.
If you have been involved in a CT hit and run accident, talking to a lawyer soon after the accident can be a tremendous help. We can help you understand your coverage under your policy in order to determine whether you are being treated fairly by your insurance company. We can also advise you against inadvertently signing away your rights.
