When your car accident involves a parked car, would you know what to do? Hitting a parked car is still considered a car accident. Here are a few tips to keep in mind in case your car accident involves a parked car.
Tips if Your Car Accident Involves a Parked Car
- Stay Put. If you leave after hitting a car, it is considered a hit and run. Odds are high that someone saw you hit the car or it is on a surveillance camera. Also, it is against the law to leave the scene of an accident in every state.
- Leave a note if the owner does not arrive. Keep it short and simple. Most states require by law that the note include the following information:
- Your name
- Good phone number to reach you
- Description of the accident
If the car you were driving was borrowed, also include the name and address of the car’s owner. Also, include your insurance information in the note. Remember anything you put in the note can be used against you later.
- Document by Taking Photos. Take pictures of the damage done to both cars plus the license plate of the other car. Even small scratches or dents can costs hundreds to repair.
- Talk to Witnesses. Get the contact information of anyone who saw you hit the vehicle. Also, write down or video their description of the accident.
- Contact Your Insurance. Make a claim on your insurance. Once your deductible is met, your insurance will likely cover the damages.
