Hit and Run Car Accidents
Orlando Hit and Run Auto Accidents
Hit-and-run accidents occur every single day in Orlando and throughout Florida. Some hit and run accidents may only involve damages to the vehicles involved in the accident. More serious accidents may leave those involved seriously injured or even dead. It is the driver’s duty to stop and stay at the scene of an accident. However, too often drivers flee the scene of the accident, leaving behind injured people and damaged property.
If a driver flees the scene of an accident, that driver may face serious criminal charges especially if the accident injured or killed someone. Criminal charges may result in loss of a driver’s license, large fines or even jail time. If a driver flees, these are just the beginning of their legal troubles. Fleeing the scenes of accidents, an act of selfishness and fear of being at fault for the accident. When the law catches up with these hit-and-run drivers, and many times they do catch them, they are held accountable for their negligent and reckless actions. When cases of this type go to a jury, they often award punitive damages to the victims because of such cowardly acts.
