Hit and Run Injuries and Accidents

By Colt Law Firm  Jan. 24, 2011 10:48p

Hit and run accidents are extremely complex and difficult matters caused when one person flees the scene of an accident for any number of reasons. It is illegal in Colorado to leave the scene of an accident before the issues involved are sufficiently resolved. Not only will the driver be penalized with a serious crime, but they will also be subject to paying any damages or injuries that the victim received if they are at fault for causing the accident. If you have been injured in a hit and run accident, you should first seek immediate medical attention, and then contact a Denver personal injury lawyer so that your attorney can be involved with the process from the soonest moment possible.

The injuries sustainable in hit and run accidents depend upon the circumstances of the crime, including if the victim was on a bicycle, was a pedestrian, or was in another vehicle. In any case, these injuries can be very serious and can include lacerations, broken bones, internal injuries, back & neck injuries, brain & spinal cord injuries, paralysis, disability and in severe cases, death. A person can even be forced to have a limb or limbs amputated in the most extreme cases where extremities have been damaged beyond repair and pose a hazard to the victim's health.
