Liability In Buffalo Car Accidents

Far too many people are killed or seriously injured every year in hit-and-run collisions. According to the AAA Foundation, “There were an estimated 737,100 hit-and-run crashes in 2015 (NHTSA, 2016). This translates to a hit-and-run crash happening somewhere in the U.S. every 43 seconds. The 2,049 fatalities that resulted from hit-and-run crashes in 2016 were the highest number ever recorded (NHTSA, 2017).” There are many factors that could potentially contribute to a car accident.

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver distraction

It is illegal to flee the scene of any collision  that causes bodily injury or death. When a driver flees the scene of a collision, they can be held at fault through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
