According to the California State Highway Patrol, 185 people were killed in hit-and-run collisions in only one year, while an additional 20,260 were injured. Nationally, the number of fatal hit and run crashes has been rising since 2009, according to a USA Today analysis based on NHTSA data. In 2009 there were 1,274 fatal hit and run crashes, 1,393 in 2010 and 1,449 in 2011. Tragically, many hit-and-run drivers were driving without a license, driving on a suspended license, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or facing other pressures that made leaving someone injured on the road seem preferable to staying at the scene of the accident.
Hit-and-run accident cases are usually more complicated than other motor vehicle accidents. Although the victims may have been seriously injured by reckless drivers, they can rarely describe the drivers or cars in great detail. Identifying the at-fault parties and holding them accountable for their actions is a job for a highly skilled personal injury attorney.
