Did you or a loved one suffer injuries or death in a hit and run accident?
Any car accident may have potentially life-threatening consequences, but victims often suffer even greater anxiety when the accident is a hit and run. Drivers involved in an accident in our state are required by law to pull over as soon as possible, and to return to the scene of the accident and render aid if needed. The driver at fault must provide his or her contact and insurance information, and help any injured parties as necessary. Failure to do so constitutes a felony. If you were injured in a hit and run accident, it is possible that your injuries were made worse by the fact that the other driver did not stop; if no one else was in the immediate vicinity, medical help might have been delayed. The decision not to stop after causing an accident is always negligent, and these drivers should be held responsible for their actions.
