Most traffic accidents which involve a motorist who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes injuries to another person. Such circumstances are likely considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault individual.
In this case, the male pedestrian may be entitled to a personal injury claim seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
