Pursuing Compensation for Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Crashes in New Hampshire
Hit-and-run pedestrian crashes can be especially difficult for victims and their families in New Hampshire. Hitting a pedestrian is bad enough, but fleeing the scene of a crash after committing this offense is downright inexcusable. Although motorists face serious consequences for fleeing the scene of pedestrian collisions, many successfully escape – never to be seen again. But what can you do after a pedestrian hit and run in New Hampshire? How can you pursue compensation and justice?
Fatal Hit-and-Run Reported in Rochester
On June 6th of 2023, it was reported that a pedestrian had been fatally injured in Rochester after a hit-and-run. Police arrived at Milton Road to find the victim lying on the ground with a serious head injury. They later determined that she had been struck from behind while walking down the road. The vehicle that struck the woman did not stay at the scene of the collision, and police are still searching for the driver as of this writing. The victim spent three days in hospital before succumbing to her wounds.
How to Pursue Compensation for a Pedestrian Hit-and-Run
If the hit-and run-driver is identified, a claim against their car insurance may be possible. If the driver is never identified or they do not have car insurance (which is unfortunately very common in New Hampshire), it may be possible to turn to your own car insurance policy for compensation even if you were not driving or even near your car at the time of the collision. The potential remedies available are very fact specific and can vary depending on the identify of the driver, where they are from, and what type of insurance is available.
