Goldsboro Hit-and-Run Accident
Hit-and-run accidents happen for a variety of reasons but at the center of every accident is a driver who fled the scene when they were supposed to stay there and render aid to the other person involved. If somebody fled the scene after a deadly accident, you and your loved ones might wonder how you can compensate on behalf of someone who was taken from you too soon.
Hit-and-run accidents are a crime, which means that somebody who commits one of these crimes could be charged on a criminal level. From there, you can bring a claim for civil damages through a wrongful death case.
