Apple Valley Pedestrian Accident
We wish to extend our condolences if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident. In hit-and-run cases, pedestrians are especially put at risk because the driver flees the scene without checking on the safety of the party who has been injured. This means that they act with complete disregard when they decide to flee the scene.
Pedestrian accidents can bring a variety of serious results such as fractures, internal damages, traumatic brain injuries, and even fatalities in the worst cases. You or a family member have a right to bring a claim against a negligent party, but it can sometimes be difficult to locate a hit-and-run driver. This is just one of the many reasons to have an experienced attorney on your side.
