Ensure Your Rights Are Protected

We Have Experience With Various Resulting Injuries

A hit-and-run collision can result in severe head trauma, leading to traumatic brain injuries that impact cognitive functions, memory, and an individual’s overall quality of life. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation to address the long-term effects on the victim’s well-being.

Spinal cord injuries frequently lead to partial or total paralysis and lifelong disabilities, posing challenges in mobility, sensation, and motor function. Victims often require continuous medical care, therapy, and specialized equipment to enhance their quality of life.

Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries are common in hit-and-run accidents for both drivers and passengers, causing neck and back pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. While these injuries may not be immediately apparent, they can worsen over time, leading to chronic pain and discomfort without proper medical intervention and treatment.

Beyond physical injuries, motor vehicle accidents can cause significant emotional trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Victims may experience flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, and depression, impacting their daily lives and mental well-being. Seeking therapy and emotional support is essential for coping with the psychological effects of such traumatic events.
