Hit-and-run accidents take place in the blink of an eye when a driver strikes another vehicle and then flees the scene of the accident. These accidents happen every single day in the U.S. and have actually been increasing on our roadways. The unfortunate truth is that hit-and-run accidents lead to some of the most severe injuries due to the fact that drivers do not remain at the scene, and so victims are left to fend for themselves until they receive help. If you have been harmed as a result of one of these accidents, you should speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
