Hit-And-Run Car Accidents in Texas
Hit-and-run accidents are some of the most common types of accidents in Texas. When drivers flee the scene of an accident, they risk facing serious criminal charges, especially if someone sustained serious injuries or died as a result of the crash. Drivers may have to pay a fine of up to $500 and spend up to 10 years in prison.
