Although automobile collisions occur each and every day, it is a shocking event when it happens to you. Whether you are driving on a busy highway, city road or open country road, negligent drivers are all over the place. What is already a shocking event could take an even more alarming turn. The motorist that caused the crash decides to flee the scene. This leaves an accident victim harmed and without a person to assign accountability to.
