Why drivers leave accident scenes
There are many reasons why drivers leave the scene of an accident without exchanging information with the other driver or calling the police. Common reasons why include:
- Driver does not have car insurance, which is against the law in Pennsylvania.
- Driver does not have a driver’s license (either underage or driver’s license revoked or suspended)
- Driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Driver committing a crime at the time of the accident.
- Driver is simply reckless or irresponsible.

How we can help you
You might think there’s nothing you can do if the driver who caused your crash flees the scene of your accident. But the reality is you might have several different options available for obtaining compensation for your crash – and we can help you explore all of them.
The most common way people obtain money for their hit-and-run accident is by filing a claim with their own insurance company. If your insurance policy contains coverage for hit-and-run claims or uninsured motorists, we can help you file a claim.
Even if you have such coverage, there’s no guarantee that your insurance company will automatically compensate you for your crash. That’s because your own insurance company might try to reduce or deny your claim. That’s why you need our law firm on your side, fighting for your rights.
