After a hit-and-run accident, it is important to call the police right away. If you do not report the hit-and-run, it can complicate the process of obtaining compensation. If the driver who hit you has been identified, you can pursue compensation through his or her insurance company. If the driver has not been identified, it is, generally, your insurance company that will pay for the damage done to you.
