Why Do Hit & Run Accidents Happen?

There are a number of reasons why a person would feel compelled to leave the scene of an accident. Some of the most common reasons why hit and accidents occur include:

  1. The driver was drunk or under the influence of drugs
  2. The individual was driving without a license
  3. The individual was driving with a suspended or invalid license
  4. The driver has a criminal record
  5. The driver was trying to avoid the consequences of the accident
  6. The driver did not realize he or she hit someone

Regardless of why a hit and run accident, leaving the scene of an accident before it is appropriate to do so is against the law and, if you were the victim of such a crime, you need an attorney who will fight for you.

What to do When Filing a Lawsuit for a Hit & Run Accident in South Carolina

Even in cases where you do not know who hit you in an accident, it is still possible to file a claim with your own insurance company if you have uninsured motorist coverage. In the state of South Carolina, there are some requirements you have to prove to successfully file a claim:

  1. You reported the accident to law enforcement within a reasonable timeframe
  2. Your injuries and property damage were caused by physical contact with the hit and run driver’s vehicle, or there was a witness to the accident
  3. You were not negligent in identifying the other driver or his or her vehicle when the accident occurred

South Carolina requires uninsured motorist coverage as part of any automobile insurance policy. If you do not have this type of coverage and were unable to identify the driver, you will likely be unable to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
