Being injured as a result of another driver’s negligence is a terrible blow. If the at-fault driver, however, drives off and leaves you at the scene of the accident, it makes the situation that much more troubling.
At 388CEDA, we offer a full range of medical care and treatment to help clients like you travel the often-difficult path toward recovery. We do not, however, stop there, and if you would like us to recommend an experienced car accident attorney, we are happy to do so upon your request.
Everyone who accepts the immense responsibility that comes with driving owes everyone else on the road a duty of care that extends to allowing their safe passage. Being harmed by driver negligence is one thing but being injured by a hit and run driver who simply abandons the scene and completely ignores his or her responsibilities takes things to the next level.
Car accident claims involving hit and run drivers tend to be among the most complicated claims and having a dedicated car accident attorney with considerable experience handling these complicated cases is generally well advised. Hit and run drivers often flee the scene because they have something to hide.
Drivers who get behind the wheel while impaired are well aware of the danger involved, and they also know that it is against the law to drive while under the influence of alcohol. A drunk driver who leaves the scene of a car accident – making the accident a hit and run – often does so to hide the fact of his or her own inebriation (thus compounding the damages the driver is responsible for).
Drunk drivers can experience physical, cognitive, and sensory impairments that make dangerous car accidents far more likely, and when they are responsible for hit and run accidents, they demonstrate exactly how impaired their judgement also is.
Distraction is becoming such a huge problem on our roadways that distracted drivers are often the cause of hit and run accidents. Distracted drivers are very aware that their attention should be focused on driving safely – and not on texting or any other distraction. Some distracted drivers, upon recognizing the damage they’ve caused – are not above fleeing the scene in a misguided attempt to avoid detection (thus making the accident a hit and run).
If you’ve been injured in a hit and run accident, obtaining the medical care you need – when you need it – is closely associated with your ability to fully heal. 388CEDA offers a comprehensive array of medical services that include all of the following:
Because obtaining just compensation is also important to your recovery, 388CEDA is prepared to recommend a trusted car accident attorney if you request that we do so.
The injuries that you suffer in a hit and run accident can be exceptionally serious.
Because traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect your brain, they can lead to permanent damages that have wide-ranging negative consequences. Victims of serious TBIs often liken the effects to living inside an altered reality – unable to connect with one’s former sense of self – which is obviously a crushing blow.
A broken bone is a painful injury that is slow to heal, and if the break is complicated, the healing process can include multiple surgeries and extensive follow-up care. A broken bone that does not heal properly can leave you with a permanent disability and can cause chronic pain.
Spinal cord injuries can happen anywhere on your spinal cord, and they are often the result of a serious blow to the back, shoulder, or neck. Even a spinal cord injury that is relatively mild can cause lingering pain and decreased range of motion, but if your spinal cord is severed, it means permanent paralysis.
Being injured in a hit and run accident in which the at-fault motorist simply leaves you behind is a terrible experience to endure. At 388CEDA, we recognize how difficult your situation is, and we offer a wide range of medical services that may aid you on your journey toward recovering your health and well-being.
