The number of hit-and-run accidents in the United States has been increasing each year with an overall average near 700,000 per year. Sadly, one recent year saw an increase in hit-and-run deaths of 60 percent from 2009.
“Hit-and-run crashes in the United States are trending in the wrong direction,” said Dr. David Yang, executive director of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “Our analysis shows that hit-and-run crashes are a growing traffic safety challenge.”
With such concerning statistics, the Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Injury Attorneys in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma are often asked, “What if I am a victim of a hit-and-run accident?”
According to car accident Attorney Jesse Tanksley, if you have been injured in a hit-and-run accident, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim for compensation. A skilled car accident attorney can help obtain compensation to cover medical treatment, rehabilitative care, lost wages, future lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
