Hit-and-Run Accident in Lakewood
Hit-and-run accidents are serious incidents that should not be taken lightly. By law, drivers involved in a crash are required to stay at the scene of the accident and cooperate with authorities. Fleeing a crash site is considered a cowardly, criminal act that can result in severe punishment including a felony. Given the circumstances of this case, the driver will be held fully accountable for causing the crash and inflicting severe injuries on a juvenile.
Once the case is resolved, the members of Cramer’s family can pursue a personal injury lawsuit and, ultimately, receive compensation for her medical bills and painful injuries.
