Liability For Irondequoit 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.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver intoxication
  • Inclement weather
  • Vehicle system failures

It is illegal for any driver to flee the scene of a collision that causes injury to a third party. It is important that accident victims understand that they do have rights. In particular, the family of any person that died in a hit-and-run collision may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
