Legal Answers
  • Q. What happen if a driver is in a hit and run no damage is done to the car that was hit the car stopped but the other didn
    A: Generally, if no damage is done and no one is injured, there's not much more to do in this circumstance. Vermont requires that drivers report crashes though if there is $3,000 worth of damage or someone is injured. Even if the damage is less than that, the at-fault driver's insurance should cover the damage to the car that was hit. If you are the owner, driver or a passenger in the car that was hit, you can make a claim against your own underinsured/uninsured motor vehicle insurance if you can't find the other driver.
