When you are out on the road and become involved in an accident, you expect the other driver to stop and deal with the situation. However, that does not always happen. Drivers who do not have a license or insurance may flee the scene, and a hit-and-run accident is serious business. The driver who leaves the scene could face fines, jail time and a loss of her or his license. But once you have been in a hit-and-run accident, you may need to take extra steps to handle the situation.
