Something that drivers who cause accidents need to remember is that they have an obligation to stay on the scene and report it to police. To the extent possible, you should also try to render aid to other passengers and drivers who may be injured. But at the very least, you cannot leave the scene.
In many cases, fatal motor vehicle accidents are preventable; they often result from careless or negligent driving. Survivors often suffer from severe injuries, including broken bones, brain damage, physical disfigurement, burns and spinal cord damage. People who are injured due to negligence have legal options to recover costs for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
