Hit And Run Truck Accidents
Rely on a Maine attorney who knows how to get results for hit and run truck accident victims
Every year, large trucks are involved in thousands of accidents, too many of which prove 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.
