Injury Accidents in Florida
A hit-and-run crash often has dangerous and devastating consequences, both for victims as well as their families. Hit-and-run accidents often result in some of the worst outcomes that we see. According to statistics, there were about 105,000 hit-and-run crashes reported in Florida in 2019. This number represented approximately 20% of all reported Florida car accidents during that time period.
Being the victim of a hit-and-run crash can be extremely frustrating. While the law requires drivers to remain at the scene, many of them choose not to obey the law. The penalties for fleeing the scene of an accident include potential jail time, fines, loss of driver’s license, and more. In addition, drivers who leave a crash scene often do so knowing that their negligence caused the crash in the first place. If this is the case, the driver will also face a civil lawsuit for damages from the victim or their family.
Under Florida law, when you have been affected by a hit-and-run accident you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
