Hit and Run Accidents Archives

Getting compensation after a hit and run

If there is one thing worse than a car accident that isn't your fault, it's a hit and run accident that isn't your fault. You may be injured, your passengers could be hurt, and your car may be a mangled mess. Seeing the other driver speed off to avoid charges just makes the whole thing devastating.

What you should know about hit and runs

Although a hit and run is usually referred to as a type of accident, it is actually the action of the driver when he or she leaves the scene that is considered the true violation. A hit and run violation may involve everything from striking a pedestrian with a vehicle to hitting another vehicle or even striking a fixed object such as a fence or gas pump.

Do you know what to do following a hit-and-run accident?

The moments following a motor vehicle accident can be confusing for those involved. This is particularly true when the accident is a hit and run. Just what do you do following such an incident? In this post we will provide some tips on what to do if you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident.

Following collision motorists involved must remain at scene

When a vehicle driven by an individual who is following the rules of the road is struck by another vehicle, it can be infuriating. When the second vehicle fails to stop and leaves the scene of the accident it adds insult in injury. In addition to morally being the right thing to do following a collision, legally, drivers involved in crashes must stop as soon as it is safe for them to do so. This is true regardless of whether the vehicle struck was occupied at the time of the crash. 

Two motorcyclists killed in Wisconsin hit-and-run accident

The sudden loss of a loved one in a motor vehicle accident is always difficult to handle. An already devastating situation is made that much worse when those involved in the incident leave the scene. Family members of two young people who recently died following a hit-and-run accident are facing this now. The two men were riding motorcycles when they were struck by a vehicle believed to be of the sport utility variety. Though this incident occurred in another part of the state, fatal hit-and-run crashes occur all too regularly in the Hudson area as well. 

Truck fails to stop after hitting Wisconsin boy

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare—a child suffering serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident. Sadly, the parents of a Western Wisconsin boy are facing this very reality. Earlier this month the 9-year-old was involved in a hit-and-run accident with a semi.

Wisconsin Rapids police urge hit-and-run driver to come forward

As we've said before in past posts, hit-and-run accidents often leave victims with the worst sense of injustice because the driver responsible for causing the accident sometimes goes unpunished. Some of our readers may know this frustration firsthand and may still be holding out hope that police find the driver and hold them accountable for their actions.

Fatal hit-and-run accident leaves police with no suspect

Sometimes, readers of our blog hear tragic stories about injuries and deaths in motor vehicle crashes that happen in nearby states. While these accidents may be happening to other people miles away from residents here in Wisconsin, the aftermath that victims and their families go through is relatively the same. And like residents here in Wisconsin, the people involved in these accidents may also want to seek compensation from the person who caused their injuries.

Suspect in custody for hit-and-run accident involving student

Wisconsin police still have not released the name of the 41-year-old Milwaukee man in their custody who they believe was involved in a serious hit-and-run accident just days ago. Although charges have not been pressed at this time, police do believe that alcohol was the reason for the man's reckless driving that could have claimed the life of a 23-year-old Marquette University student.
