Motorcycle accidents lead to serious, life-altering results every year on our roadways. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are offered few protections on our roads, which means that they are more likely to receive catastrophic injuries or even be killed in these accidents.
These accidents are made even more complicated when a driver decides that they are going to flee the scene without stopping to help. In these instances, the individual has committed a hit-and-run crime. If they are caught, they will be charged under the law. These criminal charges might be just enough to prove in your claim that the other party’s negligence contributed to your accident and that they will be held liable for your damages.
