It is apparent that the driver of the Nissan Altima will be held responsible for causing the collision that led to the serious injuries of the pedestrian involved. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the scene following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law especially if the incident injured another individual. We are hopeful that authorities will be able to locate the suspect and justice will soon be served.
In this case, the family of the critically hurt man will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
