The 24-year-old man who crossed the center line and caused the crash left his BMW and fled on foot. He later returned and was arrested and charged with unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, criminal possession of a controlled substance and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death.

Individuals who are injured in car crashes may be entitled to recover for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering or other damages. In a case where a person is killed in a motor vehicle accident, surviving family members may have a claim for wrongful death. An attorney might be able to help by analyzing the facts of the case and identifying parties who potentially have liability. The attorney might gather evidence or depose witnesses in preparation for trial or attempt to negotiate a settlement with the at-fault parties’ insurers. If the case cannot be settled, filing a lawsuit might be the next step.
