Each year, preventable car accidents injure Pennsylvanians throughout the state.

Accidents are typically caused by negligent behavior, and they cause heartbreak and anguish for every person affected by them.

Hit & Run Accidents Are an Increasing Problem
In April of 2018, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a distressing report which found that hit-and-run accidents reached a record high. It found that hit-and-run accidents have increased 60 percent since 2009 and at least 1 of these accidents occur every minute throughout the United States.
The report revealed the following hit-and-run accident statistics:
- Since 2006, an average of 682,000 hit-and-run accidents have occurred annually.
- 65 percent of people killed in hit-and-run accidents were pedestrians or cyclists.
- Fatal hit-and-run accidents have increased 7.2 percent each year since 2009.
The findings of this report are unacceptable. Drivers must use caution to protect the safety of every person on the road, especially cyclists and pedestrians. They should drive with caution, yield to pedestrians, and always respect the laws of the road. When a driver causes an accident and then flees the scene, they should be held accountable. Hit-and-run drivers destroy lives, so our attorneys will commit all our resources and focus to putting our clients' lives back together.
