Hit-and-Run Crashes in North Carolina
A hit-and-run accident can be a devastating experience for the victim as well as the victim’s family. Sadly, many hit-and-run crashes can leave the victim with serious injuries and in the worst-case scenario can even result in death. A hit-and-run driver usually flees the scene in an effort to avoid responsibility for the crash, knowing that they have caused a serious accident.
A North Carolina hit-and-run accident often presents difficult legal issues related to insurance coverage and financial responsibility for the accident. In some cases, the driver cannot be located.
