Hit-and-run accidents and injuries may lead to legal claims

Leaving the scene of an accident is a serious offense. Unfortunately, many drivers decide not to stick around after being involved in an injury-causing incident. Hit-and-run accidents and injuries resulting from those incidents can lead individuals to face immense difficulties. In many cases, civil legal action is warranted for those who were negatively affected. 

One individual may be looking into certain legal routes after a recent accident in New York. Reports stated that the event involved a vehicle and a pedestrian. The vehicle struck the pedestrian around 8:30 p.m., and the driver did not stay at the scene of the incident. Further details surrounding the accident were not disclosed at the time of the report, and the condition of the pedestrian was not reported. 

Police did not provide information on whether the driver of the vehicle had been apprehended. If he or she has not been taken into custody, that driver likely will face charges when authorities do locate him or her. Additional information on the situation may be available at a later time.

If the pedestrian suffered serious injuries in the incident -- as many pedestrians do -- that individual may face much pain and suffering and other struggles. Accidents and injuries are often difficult to deal with, but individuals who have been seriously injured could utilize personal injury claims in order to pursue compensation. A successful civil claim could lead to monetary awards for medical bills, physical and mental anguish, and other damages permitted under New York law.
