Hit and Run: Being Prepared for an Auto Accident


It seems that almost every day there is a hit and run, or accident that happens. A recent story is just a familiar reminder of how easily incidents that are never thought off can become a problem.A deputy Sheriff had turned on lights to signal for a driver to pull the vehicle over for a routine stop. The driver instead sped up, running a stop sign and hitting another vehicle. The driver of the car fled the scene, leaving the Sheriff to deal with the injured driver and chaos that had been caused.

The good news is that the other driver was not seriously injured. However, this is the not the case for several of these types of incidents that happen. When these do happen, the drivers and their families are faced with legal issues that they would have never even thought of. The family of the injured or the injured themselves would be forced to do with the insurance company, and many times finding that the other driver may not have had insurance, which can cause issues. In these types of cases, the insurance companies are looking out for themselves, as they are not always going to do what is fair and correct.

With the story mentioned above, the driver who ran from the scene would be faced with a hit and run, facing jail time if found guilty. In addition, the driver would lose their license and may be required to take a drivers education course before they could get their license back. If the driver was under the influence, this could result in a whole new list of charges and penalities that he/she would be facing. This is the usual method and is meant to deter people from driving while under the influence.
