Why do drivers sometimes flee the scene?
Often, motorists flee the scene of pedestrian accidents and other kinds of traffic accidents because they know they are at fault (due to circumstances such as impairment, distraction, or excess speed), and they are hoping to avoid being caught.
Why are drivers required to stop?
Every motorist owes everyone else on the road a duty of care that includes stopping, exchanging the appropriate information, and rendering aid (if possible) after an accident.
How can I protect my claim?
The best way to protect your hit-and-run pedestrian claim is by consulting with an experienced pedestrian accident attorney after seeking the medical attention you need.
