New York City, NY (PRUnderground) March 27th, 2015
The Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C. Personal Injury Law Firm is no stranger to automobile accidents and firmly believes that drivers who hit pedestrians and flee the scene deserve to be punished.
A recent car accident that left six young people injured and four others trapped under the wreckage escalated when a motorist fled the scene of the accident. In these instances, when the driver who flees the scene is found, punitive and compensatory damages are available for the victims of the accident.
Jeffrey Lichtman, senior partner in the firm stated, “fleeing the scene of an automobile accident is criminal and those that do so should be harshly punished. In addition, a civil action will provide compensatory and punitive damages for the victims and their families.”
In situations like these, it is extremely important to have a skilled personal injury attorney to assist in obtaining adequate compensation. In order to get in touch with an attorney from Trolman, Glaser and Lichtman visit http://www.tgllaw.com or call 888-484-5529.
