Was involved in a hit and run...how to find the owner of the vehicle???

About a week ago I was rear ended in my truck and the guy pulled over but didn't have insurance. Since he didn't have insurance I wanted to call the police out and the guy hopped in his car and took off.

Since the damage was under $1000 the police won't do anything.

The guy was driving a red/maroon older Buick with Texas License plate # BNV 0808.

Can anybody get me this guy's info? I am going to file a civil suit in small claims court.

Thanks,

Chris

If you have comp/coll, your own insurance will help track him down.

Other then finding him and beating his , your prob not going to get any $ off of him. That's why ever person in Houston should have uninsured motorist ins.

So basically fix your veh and move on, and maybe firebomb his house.

I'd like to at least send him a strongly worded letter, regardless if I end up filing suit. Who knows, he may decide to pay to fix my truck to avoid any legal issues...probably just wishful thinking.

I have uninsured motorist, but the damage is minimal. It honestly probably just needs some buffing and stuff. But, it is the principle behind the whole situation that makes me want to track the guy down.

You won't get any $ most likely, but I'm sure they could haul his off to jail for a night or two for a hit and run or leaving the scene.

That should give you at least a little satisfaction. I know I would.

I already filed a report with the HPD...they wouldn't do anything because the damage was so minimal.

If you can track him down, have him served, offer proof that he's the one that hit your vehicle, you can win in court.

Take pics of your damage, note time and date of accident. If you pay for the repair before you go to court it's easier to recover your total damages.

It's called failure to stop and give information, just a fancy term for a hit and run. Your insurance deductible should only be $250 and not the standard $500 for collision. All you need is the peace officer's incident report and you should be set. Not worth pursuing in court for damages under $1000.

People do it every day in Justice Court (small claims)

So, if you happen to find out where this lives and do under $1,000 in damage to his property you are okay in the eyes of the police?

This could turn out to be a fun weekend.

so you have the license plate number but the police refuse to do anything? Isn't causing an accident and fleeing the scene breaking the law? If the police does not do anything, I have a solution:

The police know that the burden of proof that he was driving will be on them. They know from experience that nothing will happen to the guy.

Burden of proof has absolutely nothing to do with the police when it comes to minor traffic accidents. They only respond when traffic is shut down, it's an injury accident, or fatality.
