About Hit and Runs
A hit and run is any crash that damages people or property and the person does not stop. Hit and runs can involve two vehicles, a vehicle and a pedestrian, or a vehicle and a cyclist. This can even involve houses, businesses, or other property.
There are several reasons why a driver may choose to flee instead of stopping after a crash. In some cases, a driver may be afraid to stop because he or she was breaking the law. The driver may have been drunk, driving without a license, or have a warrant out for his or her arrest. To avoid getting caught by the police, the driver chooses to leave the scene of the accident.
After a hit and run, you may be shocked and unable to get a description of the vehicle. If this is the case, witnesses may be able to help. An experienced hit and run lawyer will help uncover any evidence that may help you. Some hit and run drivers turn him or herself into the police eventually. Additionally, surveillance cameras might catch the incident or fleeing vehicle. But unfortunately, some hit and run drivers cannot be located.
Help For Hit And Run Victims
Most cases of hit and run involve illegal activity. The driver might not be insured. They may not have a license. The car may be stolen. This makes it more difficult to seek full compensation for injuries from a hit and run. But there is help available, even if the driver is never found. Working with a hit and run injury lawyer will help you understand your options. Pennsylvania and New Jersey both have funds to help hit and run injury victims.
