What do I do if the at-fault driver leaves after the accident?

First of all, do not try to follow or chase the other car. Do your best to remember the following:

  • Their license plate number,
  • A description of the driver, and
  • the color, make, and model of the car

Call the police and describe the at-fault drivers info on the phone.

Then seek medical attention for any injuries suffered during the crash. Even if the at-fault driver is never located, your own insurance company will step in to cover the medical expenses for your injuries and the property damage to your car. This is another reason why it is important to carry add-on uninsured motorist coverage on your own car insurance.
