Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident Statistics

It’s evident in this case that the hit-and-run driver will be held liable for the victim’s damages and for fleeing the scene. Once the suspect is located, they will very certainly be charged with a crime. It’s a criminal in and of itself to flee the scene of an accident. Sadly, hit-and-runs still happen daily in the United States.

A total of 2,049 people were killed due to hit-and-run accidents in the United States in 2016. Around 682,000 hit-and-runs occur every year in the United States. Unfortunately, hit-and-run cars are at blame for about one-fifth of all pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians account for 60% of those killed in hit-and-runs. Intoxication, driving without a license, and fear of arrest are common motives for hit-and-run drivers to flee the scene.

Every traffic accident is challenging to deal with, but when you add the additional element of being abandoned at the site by a hit and run driver, things get even more difficult. While it is natural to feel overwhelmed amid such an accident, retaining expert legal advice is likely to be critical to the success of your claim.
