What Constitutes a Hit and Run?

When many of us think of a hit and run event, we’ll think of the most extreme form: someone is seriously injured by an anonymous car. However, hit and runs can take many forms, and it’s important to know what it constitutes so you can get the compensation you deserve. Stacks Goudkamp is a legal firm made up of a team of trustworthy lawyers who will provide you with the high quality and reputable services that set us apart from our competitors. If you experience a hit and run in any form, we’re a team that can help.

Extreme Injury

The most serious forms of hit and run incidents involve someone being gravely injured by an anonymous car collision. In a lot of these cases, the victim is outside of a vehicle and is hit by a moving car that remains unidentified because they keep driving. These kinds of collisions involve serious personal injury, and in some cases brain injuries that can last a lifetime. Hiring a lawyer is the best way to be compensated for medical expenses, recovery costs, and the suffering inflicted on the victim and their family.

Being Run Off the Road

Less common forms of hit and runs can take place when drivers have been run off the road by other drivers. Whether it’s by a larger vehicle driving too fast and too close to yours or someone swerving toward your vehicle, these kinds of road incidents could fall within the hit and run category. If you have suffered injuries or vehicle damage after being forced off the road by an anonymous vehicle, the team at Stacks Goudkamp is happy to meet and discuss your compensation options.

Minor Collisions

Believe it or not, a hit and run doesn’t always have to involve extreme, scary circumstances. A hit and run can be as simple as having someone back into your fence and then drive away without giving their details or discussing
damage repair. If you suspect your property has been involved in a minor hit and run incident, you can have a chat to the team at Stacks Goudkamp.
