In Lake Charles and across Louisiana, there are times when an auto accident is unavoidable. There could be many reasons for why the accident occurs but when there is a crash the drivers should remain at the scene to ensure the others who were in the accident are not seriously hurt. If they are, it is imperative that they call for emergency help immediately. Sometimes, the driver will not do that and will flee.

In a recent accident between a car and a motorcyclist, the driver of the car fled. The accident happened in the evening as a motorcyclist was heading east. The crash reconstruction indicates that the vehicle, a white Nissan, turned into the path of the motorcycle after which the motorcycle crashed into the front passenger side. The driver of the Nissan then drove off. The motorcyclist suffered what were said to be potentially severe injuries. The search for the Nissan and its driver is ongoing.

When there is a crash, it is often because the driver did not see the motorcycle. Failure to yield crashes are common with motorcycles and the rider can suffer catastrophic injuries and death. This can lead to major medical costs, lost time at work and even the loss of life. A law firm that is experienced in helping those who were riding a motorcycle and were injured in car accidents to pursue compensation is key. That is especially important when there is a hit-and-run. Calling a law firm is the first thing the injured rider or his family should do.
