Norfolk, VA Personal Injury Lawyer Info: Boy Hurt in Hit-and-Run Accident in Gloucester County, VA

It's bad enough when a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle and injured. It's worse still when the driver doesn't bother to stop.

On October 26, 2011, a 13-year-old in Gloucester County, Virginia (VA), suffered a broken leg when a driver hit him on Route 14 near Rangtang Road then drove off. Fortunately, the boy's injuries were not life-threatening.

As experienced Virginia (VA) personal injury attorneys who see many of these kinds of accidents, my colleagues and I never cease to be amazed by drivers who leave the scene of an injury accident. In some cases, hit-and-run accidents cause fatalities, as happened when a 65-year-old woman was run over while standing in a bike lane on Highway 12 in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina (NC).or when a man in a wheelchair was killed by a driver on W. Mercury Boulevard in Hampton, VA.

When drivers flee the scene, they can face the civil and criminal charges for causing injuries or wrongful deaths.
