A: Possibly, but you would need to provide A LOT more information to an attorney to get a definitive answer. You should call a personal injury attorney as soon as possible because if certain things are not done in the near term - photographs of injuries/property damage, obtaining witness statements, etc. - it can negatively impact your potential claim.

A: An attorney could need additional details to make that call. In addition to the evidence of a fleeting nature already mentioned, you can request a copy of the accident report if one had been made.
