Texas hit-and-run accidents:Man suffers serious head injury

Many Texas residents would find it difficult to believe an individual could cause an accident that hurt another individual and simply walk away from it. For most people, likely their sense of compassion would trigger them to seek medical aid for the injured person. However, sadly, hit-and-run accidents happen because some people in this type of situation will instead automatically act out of a sense of self-preservation and flee the scene, leaving an injured person to suffer. This seems to be what happened recently in a hit-and-run incident in Garland.

Police have arrested a 35-year-old man who they believe hit a 29-year-old man with his minivan. Police have said according to surveillance video, the victim was standing outside a vehicle, apparently trying to tie down the vehicle to a trailer, when the accused man's vehicle hit him. The video shows the accused man getting out of his vehicle to look at the victim and then returning to his vehicle and fleeing the scene.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim lying in the street. He is currently in critical condition and suffering from a serious head injury. The driver has since been located by police. He is now in jail and faces several charges: failing to stop and render aid -- serious bodily injury, and possession of methamphetamine.

Unfortunately, hit-and-run accidents such as this one are not uncommon. In this case, a man is left to endure a serious head injury with an uncertain outcome apparently due to another man's reckless behavior and poor judgment. The victim's family may consider contacting a Texas personal injury attorney to discuss legal options, such as a civil lawsuit. A successfully litigated suit could help with the unexpected expenses the family may be facing at this time.
