What to Do After a High-Speed Hit and Run Crash

Being involved in a hit-and-run crash at any speed is frustrating and often scary for the victim as they’re left feeling helpless and confused as to what to do next.

Involved In A High-Speed Hit And Run Crash? What To Do First

Firstly, if you’ve been involved in a hit-and-run at any speed, you’ll need to call the police and an ambulance. Getting immediate emergency help will ensure your injuries are handled and your legal case will have witnesses to the accident scene. The emergency services will also have experience handling hit-and-run accidents and will be able to help you and any passengers stay calm whilst looking for any other witnesses that may have seen what happened.

When someone hits your vehicle and flees the scene it can feel incredibly unjust and frustrating, leaving you feeling far worse than bruised and battered. Being hit at high-speed significantly increases the risk of severe injury too so it’s always best to get medical treatment as soon as possible. It can also be really difficult to prove the speed in an accident case so a doctor will assess injuries and help build a bigger picture from them to help your case.

What To Do After A High-Speed Hit And Run Accident

If you’re lucky enough to walk away from your accident, we’d always recommend going to ER to be assessed to make sure there’s nothing undetected or more serious. Being hit at any speed is potentially dangerous but being hit at speed can leave far more serious injuries. 

When you’ve been involved in a high-speed hit and run crash, in particular, it can be really tempting to start investigating your own accident and even try to look for the perpetrator but it’s important to let the police handle your case. With the absence of a plaintiff initially, it can feel very frustrating but we’d always recommend starting your legal case anyway and choosing an accident attorney to help handle your case.

How To Prove A High-Speed Hit And Run Crash

Proving a high-speed hit and run crash happened is a complex legal procedure so it’s always best to hire an experienced accident attorney who will help handle your case professionally. You may not have seen anything of the other vehicle or perhaps a witness is helping with your case, either way, the nature of a hit-and-run is often more lengthy and complex than a straightforward accident case.

Trying to prove the speed at which your accident happened will ultimately be down to the police and their experienced insights as well as the accident investigation teams. Your attorney will work closely with the emergency services to help establish the details of your case and ensure all the details are in place to successfully present your case.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
