What constitutes a hit-and-run accident?

Posted under Uncategorized

When an accident occurs and vehicle flees the scene, this type of accident is often considered a hit-and-run accident. These accidents typically have serious legal implications because drivers who flee the scene are potentially at fault. 

The definition of a hit-and-run accident, however, is not always clear cut. In some cases, a driver may believe that the accident did not cause any damage or injuries, and decide to leave the scene of the accident. If this occurs, then the other driver must show that the driver who caused the accident was trying to avoid fault for the accident.
