Hit-and-Run Accidents in Texas
According to recent studies, within a 10-year time span, nearly 700,000 hit-and-run accidents occurred every year throughout the country. Unfortunately, when hit-and-run accidents occur at night, drivers are usually under the influence, in stolen vehicles, in unregistered vehicles, or have just committed a crime and fear being caught by authorities. Drivers may also have an expired license at the time of the accident as well.
Regardless of the reasoning behind fleeing the scene of an accident, drivers should be held financially responsible for all damages and losses, especially if they were at fault.
