Hit & Run Lawyers Serving Little Rock
Competence, Care, & Trust for the Injured in Arkansas
Arkansas hit and run accidents are criminal matters because it is unlawful to leave the scene of an accident. Unfortunately, these types of incidents occur all too often, leaving accident victims with no one to hold accountable for their losses and damages. An auto accident where someone claims they weren’t responsible is frustrating enough, but when someone doesn’t even have the decency to stick around and make sure everyone is okay, we don’t blame you for wanting justice.
At Taylor & Taylor Law Firm, P.A., we understand the frustration of those who have been injured by individuals who flee. Although we can’t always find the hit-and-run driver, that doesn’t mean that we can’t find a way to have your injuries paid for by an insurance company. The first place we look at is your own insurance policy, to see if it covers you. If not, we seek other avenues of coverage and compensation. That is why you should contact us immediately following a hit and run accident. We will investigate all your insurance coverage and look for options and solutions before it is too late to file a claim.

Hit & Run Accidents
In Arkansas and across the United States, hit and runs occur despite the fact that they are a Class D felony punishable by up to 6 years in prison. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, these types of crashes account for 11% of all traffic accidents in the nation. Furthermore, 1 out of 5 pedestrians is killed in hit and run accidents every year.
Drivers who flee the scene of accidents may do so because:
- They were under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- They were driving on a suspended or revoked license
- They were driving without insurance
- They were texting at the time of the accident
- They were speeding or violating another traffic law
- They had something else to hide
When such an accident occurs, you should immediately call 911 and get medical attention but, if possible, you should also try to write down anything you can remember about the other driver’s vehicle. Even a license number, make and model, or small detail about the car or truck can help law enforcement find the driver who hit you. You should also get the names and numbers of witnesses who may have seen the accident occur and share that information with the police.
