Hit-and-Run Accidents Statistics

Fleeing the scene after an accident is a crime in itself. Sadly, 11 percent of all crashes involve a hit-and-run driver. Once apprehended, the hit-and-run driver may face serious charges.

California law is clear that if a motorist bumps or hits an unattended parked car, the driver must leave his or her name and contact information for the driver of the damaged vehicle. If someone’s property has been damaged, it is illegal to drive away in an attempt to go undetected. To do so is a misdemeanor that can carry the maximum sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

Hit-and-run accidents are not an uncommon occurrence on U.S. roadways. Approximately 682,000 hit-and-run crashes occur annually since 2006 in the U.S. There are several reasons why hit-and-run drivers flee the scene. They might be intoxicated or impaired by drugs, face legal difficulties, be uninsured, or be illegal aliens.

San Diego County Personal Injury Claim for Victims of Hit-and-Run Accidents

Being injured by another driver in a car accident is never easy. Still, if the other motorist doesn’t even bother to stop, accept responsibility, and provide aid, it makes the situation that much more difficult. Many victims of hit and run accidents don’t realize that even though the at-fault driver disappears, they are still likely to be entitled to compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering incurred.

After sustaining injuries from an accident, getting a personal injury claim is necessary to reduce the considerable weight of the victim’s shoulders. The victims will be entitled to seek financial compensation for the medical expenses, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering that the accident has caused them through the personal injury claim.
