Philadelphia Car Accident Attorney: A disabled man in a wheelchair who was struck by a hit-and-run driver two weeks ago in Wilkes-Barre, died at Hospice Community Care in Dunmore, Lackawanna County on June 29, 2012. The Pennsylvania man was traveling in his wheelchair on South River and West Northampton streets when was struck by a hit-and-run driver. The hit-and-run driver later turned herself in and was charged with careless driving causing serious bodily injury, reckless driving, not giving information and rendering aid, not giving information and rendering aid by reporting the accident to police, and not immediately reporting the accident to police.
Under Pennsylvania law, drivers who have been in a car accident are required to stop at the scene and, if another driver or passenger is injured, the driver is required to remain at the scene of the accident and render aid to the injured party. A victim of a hit-and-run accident may file a lawsuit against the driver for physical injuries, pain and suffering and other losses. A family of a person killed by a hit-and-run driver may file a wrongful death and survival action to receive money damages for losses.
