Hit-and-Run: the Car Accident That Adds Insult to Injury

Asheville residents are becoming alarmingly accustomed to having law enforcement officials ask for the public’s help in locating a driver or car that has caused an accident as the area’s hit-and-run rate goes up. Anyone who has sustained an injury in any sort of wreck should contact a personal injury attorney in Asheville, even if the accident was a hit-and-run.

Law enforcement authorities routinely arrest suspects of hit-and-run car accidents, based on information that they are able to glean from witnesses, as well as from evidence at the accident site. Because police usually have at least a partial description of the car in question, they can ask the public for assistance, as well as contact area body shops to determine if anyone has needed repairs on a car similar to the one they are seeking.

Law enforcement personnel in the area have also indicated that advances in technology are helping investigators to locate many drivers who have caused a car accident, where they may have gotten away with a hit-and-run in the past. For example, surveillance videos from nearby stores have been used to track a vehicle involved in a car accident, as has laser technology combined with software that can completely reanimate accident data, sometimes determining the type of car that would have been involved. Witnesses with cell phones have also been helpful in nabbing car accident suspects.

Advancements in technology as well as the determination of the Asheville Police Department to locate and arrest any driver who flees the scene of a car accident are just two reasons why the victim of a hit-and-run should contact an Asheville car accident attorney if an injury has been sustained. Rather than being resigned to never finding the culprit and having to foot the bill for any property damages or personal injuries sustained, a victim can take consolation in the fact that if the suspect is found, a personal injury attorney will aggressively pursue compensation. However, even if the hit-and-run accident remains unsolved, an attorney can help the victim to obtain remuneration through the victim’s own car insurance policy, especially if uninsured motorist coverage was in effect.

Asheville may be seeing many more hit-and-runs than it did in the past, but regardless of the circumstances surrounding a car accident, innocent victims should not be made to bear the brunt of the financial costs involved. Even when a driver has added insult to the injury sustained in a wreck, an experienced and knowledgeable Asheville car accident attorney will be able to uphold the rights of the victim and get the justice that is warranted.
