Liability In Richmond Hit-And-Run Car Accidents
It is illegal to flee the scene of a car accident that results in bodily injury or death. A large portion of hit-and-run collisions involve drivers that are intoxicated. It’s been estimated that by the time someone is arrested for DUI they may have driven drunk more than a dozen times. Even a small amount of alcohol can substantially impair drivers in a number of ways.
- Reduced coordination
- Loss of concentration
- Impaired judgement
- Delayed reaction times
Any person that is injured due to the negligence of another driver may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. It is extremely important to continue to receive medical care after an accident. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case free of cost and let you know what your legal options are.
