Hit and run accidents are serious violations of not only the law, but other moral and ethical obligations. The law requires anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident to exchange all personal information, including proof of insurance, with others drivers involved. Hit and run accidents are all too common throughout Texas, charging these cases as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the severity of the incident.
The most serious of these cases usually involve those where victims have either sustained injuries or, were tragically killed. A very prominent and high-profile hit and run incident occurred in last month, when rap music mogul Suge Knight, was charged with murder in a hit and run incident. According to his attorney, Suge Knight was at the helm of his truck, trying to escape from a group of people who were threatening to kill him, and had no idea that he had hit two people during his escape.
As you can see in Suge Knight’s case, many who are accused of hit and run accidents obtain legal defense teams that try to find every reason to minimize blame for their clients. Cases where the driver has fled the scene can make litigation that much more difficult. For cases as complex as hit and run, your first step should be to contact Austin car accident attorneys from Daspit Law Firm who have experience representing these types of cases and obtaining restitution for victims.
