I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
What to Do After a Hit and Run Accident
If you are involved in any type of auto accident, then you must stop and offer up your name and insurance information. If anyone is injured, then you must also summon emergency services. There are severe legal consequences for those who would hit-and-run. This is usually considered a criminal offense and can be punished by imprisonment or stiff fines.
Why Do People Hit and Run?
Hit-and-run laws were instituted when cars were first manufactured because drivers in those days wore goggles and there were no license plates. Each time there was a car collision, either party could speed away and not leave any identifying information. Today, in most jurisdictions, hit and run is a crime.
There are a number of reasons why someone might hit and run. The most common is that they simply get terrified of what might happen and they don’t want to stick around and find out. In some cases, people commit this crime because they are high on drugs or drunk and they know that they will be taken to jail once the police arrive. There are many other reasons that might include:
- Driver is in a stolen car
- Driver has warrants out for his/her arrest
- Driver was speeding or being reckless
- Driver had just committed another crime
- Car contains illegal drugs and weapons
- Driver is ill and became confused
This is one crime that is getting harder and harder to get away with. The reason is because of all the public cameras. Today, many stores, restaurants and other public places have their own surveillance equipment, and whatever happens each day is filmed. Many cities now have red-light cameras as well and even the public has become more adept at filming things that happen out on the streets each day. You can be filmed at the grocery or your favorite restaurant. There may be cameras on the parking lot of the public library or at a convenience store.
