Krum, TX (1/10/2020) – A 12-year-old child is now in the hospital after being involved in a hit-and-run accident Wednesday night.
Earlier that night, police were called to a neighborhood to help assist a family with two missing children. A call came out of a hit-and-run in the same area, and when police arrived, one of the missing children they were trying to find was struck by a vehicle that fled the scene.
The child struck was taken to a Fort Worth hospital for possible injuries sustained in the accident.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Hit-and-Run Accident Lawyers
Hit and runs are one of the most common accidents that we see and often involve claims that take extensive investigation to resolve. This is because when someone leaves the scene, it can be pretty hard to track down the person who ran, and it can be hard to prove that the victim was indeed struck by another vehicle. It is also hard to deal with insurance companies in these situations because there are so many reasons that can be used to deny the claim in its entirety.
Because of the complicating nature of filing a claim for a hit-and-run accident, it’s important to contact legal assistance to help you during this difficult time.
