Liability For Bronx Car Accidents

Thousands of people are injure or killed in hit-and-run collisions every year. According to the AAA, “The current analysis found that both the rates of hit-and-run crashes and fatalities are increasing. 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.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:

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

All drivers are supposed to slow down in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic. When a driver fails to slow down and hits a pedestrian, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured in a hit-and-run car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A car accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
