Welcome to Helping Hart, Inc
Helping Hit and Run Victims
Helping Hit-and-Run Tragedies (a.k.a. HHART) is committed to raise awareness, help the hit-and-run victim and their families, and help fund law enforcement by providing much-needed resources. This cause is a topic that is very near and dear to our hearts. Our board members have almost all had a story of a hit-and-run victim close to their hearts.
This tragic crime is more common than it should be, and numbers are on the rise. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety research, an average of one hit-and-run accident happens in the U.S. every minute. This senseless and selfish act should never occur. Everyone knows accidents happen, but people should not run from their mistakes by leaving the scene having no regard for doing the right thing.
The Helping Hit-and-Run Tragedies (a.k.a. HHART) Nonprofit Organization has many goals. Our short-term goal is to help fund law enforcement agencies and families directly related to a hit-and-run victim. Our long-term goal is to raise national awareness to as many drivers across the U.S. as possible. We genuinely believe that if more people were aware of how often hit-and-run accidents occur, they would be more aware of preventing such a tragedy. When you contribute to a charity, you are contributing to a better tomorrow for your loved ones.
It’s Time To Lead The Fight For A World Without Hit and Run Victims!
Helping Hit-and-Run Tragedies (a.k.a. HHART) could not do what we do without the support of our associates and our sponsors. It is generosity and care that makes it possible for us to help others. If you would like to learn more about these partnerships and how you can join us in our mission to get justice for every hit and run victim we can, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We will be happy to provide more information.
For A Better Tomorrow
We strive to have the resources available to make genuine change. We want to offer help to every hit-and-run victim who has suffered a loss because of this tragic event. However, we know that is an impossible task. The way we will make the most significant impact is to help stop the root problem. Hit-and-run accidents would not be as prevalent if people are held accountable.
Suppose offenders cannot get away with leaving the scene of an accident without facing dire consequences. In that case, we believe people will think twice. In addition, we also want to work closely with law enforcement in helping them arrest and capture hit-and-run suspects with higher efficiency. We can’t do that without your help. Helping Hit-and-Run Tragedies (a.k.a. HHART) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. With your help and others like you, we can all make a significant impact on the world around us.
What Should You Do After a
Hit and Run Accident?
Dial 911 immediately, especially if you or anyone else involved is injured.
Gather as much information possible about the vehicle that hit you (including model, color, condition, license plate number (as many digits or letters as possible) any distinguishing stickers or marks).
Determine anyone who may have witnessed the incident and collect their contact information.
Please take photos of any property damage, including vehicles, injuries, the scene itself, and anything you think may help as evidence.
File an insurance claim with the other driver’s insurance carrier if they are caught or with your insurance carrier.
Hire a personal injury lawyer if the at-fault driver has been identified. Hiring an attorney to represent you can save time and stress.
The Reality of the
Hit and Run Epidemic
According to the latest statistics report generated by NCSA’s Information Services Team, in 2019, there were 2,005 fatalities nationwide due to hit and run tragedies. That means 2,005 people have been ripped away from the people who loved them. That is 2,005 men, women, grandparents, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, friends stolen away in a senseless act of cowardice.
