Under Texas law, a person who is involved in an auto accident must stop when there is a possibility of injury or property damage. There can be instances, however, when the negligent driver will leave the scene — presumably to avoid being held accountable for the accident. This type of accident is commonly referred to as a hit-and-run.
Negligent drivers who cause auto accidents are responsible for the losses suffered by their victims. In a hit-and-run accident, victims may not know the identity of the responsible party, and many struggle with where to begin in the process of seeking compensation. These cases can be extremely complex, and the assistance of a Mesquite hit-and-run accident attorney can be very beneficial.
