Hit And Run Truck Accidents
Rely on a Maine attorney who knows how to get results for hit and run truck accident victims
Large trucks are involved in about a half million accidents per year on average. Nationwide, about 5,000 of these large truck accidents (trucks weighing more than 5 tons) prove to be fatal. In some accidents, a truck driver will flee the scene. The hit-and-run truck driver may have been driving under the influence or texting while driving. Whatever the reason, a trucker who causes an accident or is involved in a collision with another vehicle or pedestrian and leaves the scene can ultimately be arrested and charged with hit and run.

Steps to take after a hit-and-run collision in Maine
- Write down any identifiable details about the truck or the driver. Jot down the license plate number or any company name you see.
- Talk to witnesses. Get their statement and any contact information such as their name, phone number, and email address.
- Contact the police. Some drivers might not want to get the police involved because they might have some unpaid parking tickets or lack insurance. This would be a mistake. The police not only can help in tracking down the truck driver as soon as you call them, but the police report will help you build a stronger personal injury case.
- Contact an attorney. A personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal options. You may be able to make a claim against your own uninsured or underinsured driver policy.
