In this day and age, people are constantly trying to get from one place to the other so quickly that it is no surprise that accidents take place every minute of each day. Alcohol and other distractions can also contribute to accidents, but neither of those facts negate driver responsibility, nor do they change the fact that accidents are capable of causing severe physical and emotional injuries. One of the worst types of accident is the hit and run, as it leaves you, the driver, with no obvious path by which to secure compensation to cover the damages and injuries you incurred.
Approximately 100,000 people are injured in hit & run accidents every single year. Close to 1,400 of victims die as a result of their injuries. That breaks down to 4 people being killed in hit and run accidents every day of the year. Hit & run accidents often claim the lives of innocent pedestrians. Almost 1/5 of all pedestrian accident deaths are caused by a hit & run driver, and up to 18% of all hit & run fatalities involve pedestrians.
