Parker Colorado Hit & Run Accident Lawyer

Hit and Run Legal Information
Colorado Attorney R. Brian Daniel

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 18% of all pedestrian accidents involved a hit and run driver.  This startling statistic is unfortunately only a small number of the actual hit and run accidents that occur every year.  In addition to pedestrians, bicyclists and other motor vehicles can also be involved in hit and run accidents. If you are involved in a hit and run accident of any kind, it is important to contact a Parker, Colorado Personal Injury lawyer to discuss the hit and run accident and in order to assure that the Colorado law is on your side.

Hit and Run—Against Colorado Law

A driver who is involved in an accident has a responsibility to stay at the scene of the accident, possibly render aid and accept his or her responsibility for the accident.  When a driver fails to do so and flees the accident scene, it is known as a hit and run accident. In the State of Colorado, fleeing the scene of an accident is against the law and hit and run drivers will be prosecuted.  While usually charged as a misdemeanor, if the accident resulted in another person's death, the hit and run driver can be charged with a felony in the State of Colorado.  Due to the seriousness of the crime, police officials in Colorado take hit and run accidents very seriously and make apprehending the criminal a top priority.

Why Drivers Flee

There are many reasons a driver may flee the scene of an accident, including:

  • To avoid legal responsibility
  • Illegal Possession of Firearms or Stolen Goods
  • Illegal Possession of Drugs
  • Driving without Insurance or a Registered Driver's License
  • Driving while Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol
  • Underage Driver
  • Fear of Going to Jail (broken probation etc)
  • Confusion after the accident

Hit and Run Accidents—Seeking Compensation

After a hit and run accident, many questions are left unanswered. How will I be compensated for my injuries? Who will fix this damage? What do I do now? At The Daniel Law Firm, we understand how traumatic a hit and run accident can really be.  During this difficult time, you will need an aggressive and compassionate Colorado personal injury attorney on your side to negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and to assist police officials in apprehending the hit and run driver.  In addition, your Parker, Colorado Personal Injury Attorney will work closely with doctors and insurers to make certain that you receive the compensation you need to fully recover after a hit and run accident.
