What is a hit and run in Wisconsin?
A hit and run occurs when a driver fails to stop and file a police report (or exchange insurance information) after getting in an accident with another vehicle.
After a crash in Wisconsin, all drivers must:
- Stop their vehicle.
- Provide a name, address, and registration to all other drivers.
- Reasonably assist anyone who has been injured. This could involve calling an ambulance.
- Report the accident to the police. Do agree with the other party to not fill out a police report. They could go around your back, fill out a report, and you could be charged with a hit and run.
What if I can’t identify the car that hit me?
Often during a hit and run accident, the victims do not have an opportunity to identify the driver because of shock, injury, or lack of light. Write down all the information you can remember about the accident including time of day, car color, license plate, location, and any other relevant information. Go to the police with this information and they will work to locate the driver. Tusler Law also works for you to locate the driver by working with the police and interviewing witnesses to gather evidence for your case.
