By law, drivers involved in an accident are required to remain at the scene and cooperate with authorities. Fleeing a crash site is considered a cowardly, criminal act that can result in severe punishment, including charges of felony hit-and-run. Based on this information, the suspect driver will be held responsible for causing the crash and inflicting severe injuries on the victim in question.

Once the case is resolved, the non-guilty injured victim may have the option of pursuing a personal injury lawsuit and, ultimately, receiving compensation for multiple inconveniences ranging from medical bills to vehicle damage.
