Injured in a Hit and Run Accident?
Retain a Birmingham Car Accident Lawyer!
Hit and run accidents can cause some of the most catastrophic
personal injuries and property damage to everyone involved. Innocent bystanders and others
sharing the road can be affected as well. What makes these types of cases
so distressing is the fact that the individual who was responsible for
causing the accident failed to acknowledge his or her responsibility.
Those harmed in a hit and run accident are best served by retaining a
Birmingham injury attorney as soon as possible.
How the Law Defines Hit and Run
A driver who strikes another car, pedestrian, or property of another must
stop to identify him or herself and call for help if anyone was injured.
One of the most important elements to note about hit and run cases is
that fault does not factor in when determining someone is guilty of the
offense. So, even if the individual was not at-fault for the accident,
he or she could still be guilty of leaving the scene.
Many hit and run accidents arise from the following types of cases:
- Drunk driving accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Uninsured motorist accidents
- Reckless driving accidents
- Distracted driving
Fleeing the scene is a serious offense and is punishable by the law. The
individual may be convicted of a felony, and be forced to pay the consequences
of felony-level charges. Unfortunately, this does nothing to provide restitution
to the victims. If you have been hurt,
our legal team can guide you through this ordeal. From investigation to settlement, and
every step necessary to take care of your case, we are prepared to stand
