Who protects hit and run victims?
Once the hit and run offender is apprehended, law enforcement commonly does a good job of criminal prosecution. This may do nothing, however, to assist the victim of a hit and run. Commonly, victims suffer medical conditions such as:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Injuries that are catastrophic in nature will require extensive medical treatment and changes in life style. Many times, a victim of a hit and run will be out of work on a temporary or permanent basis. The question becomes who will take care of the victim and their families?
