Most traffic accidents which involve a driver who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes multiple injuries to other parties. Such circumstances are likely considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect.
Motorists who are involved in car collisions are obliged to stop and provide assistance to the injured individuals and to cooperate with the authorities. In this case, the operator of the pickup truck took off, left the several people wounded in the roadway and caused another wreck. The victims have a right to pursue a claim seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
