Hit-and-Run Accidents in Texas

Committing a hit-and-run is a serious criminal charge in Texas, particularly when a person leaves the scene of an accident that involves a serious injury, death, or significant property damage. Regardless if there is property or bodily injury involved, it is the duty of all Texas drivers to stop to give information or stop to render aid when they are involved in an accident. Penalties for leaving the scene of an accident range from a misdemeanor to a felony, depending on the damage or injury the driver causes.

If your hit-and-run accident involves any of these complications or you are having a tough time being compensated for your damage or injuries, it is better to call legal experts who can help you explore all of your legal and investigative options.  Call car accident attorneys Sutliff & Stout at (713) 987-7111 or send us an email to discuss your car accident injury case.
