Fayette County Hit and Run Crash Sends Man to Hospital

Comments (0)

What Happened:

An accident on Route 61 in Fayette County, West Virginia (WV) led to one man being taken to the hospital and another man being sent to jail. Why did a man wind up in jail? Because the at-fault driver decided to flee the scene of the wreck, according toWSAZ3. The victim who was hit is listed in critical condition.

The West Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

After crashing into another car, the decision to bolt from the scene is not only inhumane, it’s also against the law. Now, the driver responsible for the crash is likely to be convicted of criminal charges.

The victim, or his loved ones, should consider speaking with a West Virginia personal injury lawyer to consider their legal options. Just because the at-fault driver is facing criminal charges does not preclude the victim or his loved ones from seeking restitution through a civil claim.
