In the State of Colorado, it is illegal for anyone to flee the scene of an accident. Drivers who are involved in automobile accidents are responsible to remain at the scene until authorities arrive. As a result, hit and run drivers face extreme legal charges. Depending on the severity of the accident, hit and run drivers can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony (if the accident resulted in the death of another individual). If you are involved in a hit and run accident, it is important to contact a Colorado Springs Injury Attorney immediately to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Drivers that flee the scene of the accident may do so for many reasons. While some drivers are simply scared and overwhelmed, others may be trying to avoid getting arrested for drunk driving or being in possession of a stolen vehicle. Drivers who already have warrants out for their arrest or who are in possession of drugs or stolen goods may also flee the scene immediately after an accident to avoid jail time. No matter what their reason is, there is no exception. In El Paso County and the city of Colorado Springs, leaving the scene of an accident is a crime.

A hit and run accident can involve two motor vehicles or it may involve a pedestrian or bicyclist. If you or a loved one is involved in any type of hit and run accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Injuries sustained in automobile accidents can worsen over time, leading to chronic disabilities if not diagnosed and treated promptly.

After you have been medically treated, you should contact a Colorado Springs Injury Attorney immediately. Your attorney will work with local authorities and insurance companies to ensure that you receive the appropriate compensation for missed work, medical treatments and future expenses.

It is also important that you retain any information that may help your attorney to file a claim. If you have the license plate number of the vehicle involved or if you have access to witnesses who saw the accident, be sure to notify the police and your attorney. Any information you can provide will enable the police to track down the hit and run driver and bring him to justice.

If you or a loved on is involved in a hit and run accident, the damages and injuries sustained can be catastrophic. In addition, some insurance companies may deny your claims if they believe the other driver to be at fault. During this difficult process you should have someone in your corner fighting for your rights. Contact a Colorado Springs Injury Attorney immediately after your accident and get the compensation you deserve to get your life back on track.
