Police Searching For Man In Relation To Hit And Run Accident

FoxSanAntonio.com recently posted a story confirming that city police are searching for a man who allegedly committed arson following a hit and run accident. According to a San Antonio police officer, a man recently stole a 2007 Toyota truck which was parked on the side of Rasa Drive. While fleeing in the truck, the thief was involved in a hit and run accident on Interstate 410. Police then believe that the suspect parked the truck in a remote part of the city and went to acquire gasoline. He then used that gasoline to set the truck on fire. Police are currently looking for information which will lead to the location or identity of the suspect. The case illustrates a major issue for the innocent victims of hit and run accidents. Sometimes it is impossible to identify the negligent party. Hit and run accident victims deserve justice, if you have been injured by a hit and run driver, an experienced car accident lawyer can help.

Obligations for Texans Involved in Car Accidents

The state of Texas puts some basic legal obligation on anyone involved in a highway accident. After an accident, The Texas Transportation legal code requires that anyone involved in the accident must:

  • Stop their vehicle and remain at the scene of the accident;
  • Assess the accident and determine if anyone needs immediate medical aid;
  • Provide emergency assistance to injured persons if reasonably possible; and
  • Exchange accurate and up to date contact and insurance information.
Who Pays for a Hit and Run Accident?

Sadly, not all drivers live up to those legal obligations. While the failure to do so can result in criminal penalties for the guilty party, it can also create a difficult situation for the innocent accident victims. Hit and run accidents, when the guilty party can not be located, are treated much like uninsured motorist accidents. You will often be forced to try to recover compensation from your own insurance company. Many Texans carry insurance policies which include some form of uninsured motorist coverage. These uninsured motorist claims are notoriously difficult and complicated cases. But, you deserve fair compensation for your injuries. All insurance policies are inherently complex. You may not even be aware of whether or not you have uninsured motorist coverage. If you have been involved in a hit and run accident, it is imperative that you get your case, and your insurance policy, in front of a lawyer as soon as possible. Your lawyer can review your insurance policy and determine how to use it to make a valid case on your behalf.
