The prospect of having one's life turned upside down by a serious injury likely never crosses one's thoughts. Unfortunately, every day is full of random events that can result in life-changing injuries, especially when victims suffer serious brain injuries as a result of motorcycle accidents. These crashes occur frequently in Arizona, and families often struggle to handle the physical and financial burdens that follow.
Any car accident can be life-threatening and life-altering, but hit and runs present a unique situation, since you cannot file a claim against a driver you cannot identify. During the panic of realizing the other driver has fled, you may not have the mental presence to decide what you should do next.
Those who have been convicted of impaired driving are often punished with fines and other measures that are meant to protect others from harm. Unfortunately, in spite of these deterrents, there will be motorists who will continue to pose a danger to fellow travelers. Sadly, one Arizona teenager was killed in car crash caused by an allegedly impaired driver.
