A man was killed in a hit-and-run crash earlier this month in Dallas after he stopped to help another
driver. The accident happened on a Sunday night around 11 p.m. in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, along
The accident occurred when a Ford Expedition was left disabled on the highway. A man stopped to help
move the vehicle off the road when a Cadillac hit them. The driver of the Cadillac got out of the car and
fled on foot. The good Samaritan who stopped to help was transported to a nearby hospital but was
later pronounced dead.
Hit-and-run accidents are very common. Drivers can panic and flee the scene of an accident they caused,
leaving their victims with serious injuries and without taking financial responsibility for their actions.
Fortunately, many hit and run accidents are compensable when a claim is filed with the accident victim’s
automobile insurance provider.
When a hit-and-run accident occurs, the victim may need legal advice to recover financial compensation
for their injuries. They may be able to pursue a claim against the hit and run driver, if he or she is found,
or they may be able to recover from their own insurance company in the form of an uninsured motorist
If a hit-and-run-driver who is responsible for an accident is never found by the authorities, the accident
victim may still be able to recover. Many people do not realize that their own insurance policy can cover
them if they are hit by another driver. The uninsured motorist coverage can pay for medical bills, lost
wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and more.
