One of the few things worse than being in a car accident is not knowing how to hold the negligent driver accountable. In hit and run car accidents, victims may feel as if they have nowhere to turn after a damaging incident. In reality, experienced Wilmington personal injury attorneys are an important resource when a victim has been harmed by a negligent driver who fled the scene.
Police will generally work hard to track down a hit and run driver. Thanks to today’s technology, finding hit and run drivers is easier than it’s been in the past. A thorough accident investigation may reveal surveillance footage or cell phone footage from witnesses; in addition, a negligent driver’s car may feature telltale signs of the accident.
The attorneys at Murphy & Landon have dealt with many hit and run cases in the past and know the various ways in which a fleeing driver can not only be found but also sued if need be. It’s important for victims to not despair and assume the other driver has escaped for good; it is no longer easy to remain hidden in our technology-saturated modern world.
Since Murphy & Landon is a small firm, the personal injury lawyers can offer personalized dedication to every client’s case. A car accident victim who has been struck by a hit and run driver is likely to have many questions: Can the other driver be sued? Will the other driver face criminal charges? What types of damages can be sought? Will a civil suit provide thorough compensation for serious injury? A Delaware personal injury attorney can answer these questions and many more; at Murphy & Landon, the firm’s trusted counsel will do so with compassion and commitment.
