Liability For Queens Hit-And-Run Car Accidents

Far too many people are injured or killed every year in hit-and-run collisions. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, “In 2016, there were 1,980 fatal hit-and-run crashes resulting in 2,049 fatalities. This is the highest annual number of hit-and-run fatalities or crashes recorded since NHTSA began compiling statistics on fatal motor vehicle crashes in 1975.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to a hit-and-run collision.

  • Accidents are more likely to happen at night and during periods of reduced visibility.
  • Accidents are more likely to happen at intersections, especially when drivers are making left turns.
  • Accidents are more likely to happen when drivers are intoxicated by other substances.

It is illegal to flee the scene of any collision that causes bodily injury or death. Drivers that flee the scene of collisions could face civil and criminal liability for their actions. Any person who is injured in a hit-and-run collision may have legal recourse through a civil claim.
