Hit and Run Accident
Were You Seriously Injured By A Fleeing Driver?
Car accidents can be incredibly devastating experiences. More than 35,000 people were killed in car crashes in 2015 alone, and hundreds of thousands more were seriously injured. As terrible as regular crashes may be, they can become even worse when the at-fault driver chooses to flee the scene without reporting the incident or checking on their victim’s health. This is a criminal offense, and an experienced attorney can help you identify and bring the negligent driver to justice.
