Based on the police reports and eyewitness accounts of the accident, it’s likely that the driver will be held accountable for the injury of young Antonio. Hit-and-run accidents are considered a serious crime, and drivers who flee the scene of an accident without providing relevant identification can be arrested on felony charges. Even more serious, Cisneros caused a traumatic experience for a young child and could possibly face charges for endangering Antonio’s life.
By law, Antonio’s family members hold the right to file a personal injury claim, which can provide compensation for a number of issues including medical procedures and the emotional well-being of the victim.
