Liability In Port Chester Car Accidents

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured every year in hit-and-run collisions. According to the AAA, “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).” Victims of hit-and-run collisions tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

It is illegal to flee the scene of any collision that results in bodily injury or death. Drivers that flee the scene of any injury collision could face civil as well as criminal liability. Any person that is injured in a hit-and-run collision could seek damages through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
