Finding a Connecticut Hit-and-Run Attorney
When a motorist fails to stop and check on a victim after they have been hit, this is the definition of a hit-and-run or a skip-hit. When any party is a part of an accident, it is their responsibility to stop and check on the victim and provide aid if needed. Failure to do so is a very serious offense and in 47 of the 50 states in the United States, it isn't taken lightly. This type of incident is considered a felony.
