Holding Irresponsible Drivers Accountable
Being injured in a car accident can be incredibly traumatic and stressful. The worst part of many hit-and-run accidents is that a driver was inconsiderate and callous enough to leave an accident scene after someone else was injured or killed. Indeed, hit-and-run drivers — when they are caught — can be prosecuted and sentenced to jail time.
Many hit-and-run drivers do not stop because they are impaired by alcohol or drugs. Some are trying to avoid accountability for previous offenses, while others simply lack the character to take responsibility for their actions.
Your Options If The Driver Isn’t Found Right Away
Even when a hit-and-run driver is not apprehended, an injured victim (or his or her family) may be entitled to fair compensation for his or her injuries and losses. Medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and wrongful death are the most common damages in such personal injury claims.
