Florida Hit-and-Run on U.S. 192

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on September 1, 2015

In late August, a hit-and-run accident killed a bicyclist near Orlando on U.S. 192. The Florida Highway Patrol said the bicyclist, Reyes Azamar, was hit by the driver of a four-door Mazda 2006. The driver then fled the scene on foot. Witnesses described the driver to police, who were still looking for him last week.

Hit-and-run accidents are one of the scariest kinds of accidents to be involved in, because it is harder to gain retribution or closure. Still, there are steps you can take. If you are conscious after being involved in a hit-and-run accident, call the police immediately to report the crime. Try to write down any information you can remember, including a description of the car and driver, and find any witnesses possible. Take down witnesses’ names, phone numbers, and addresses in order for police to follow up with them.

If someone you love was killed in a hit-and-run accident, like in the case on U.S. 192, you have rights and are entitled to compensation from the driver. It can seem overwhelming to determine what to do in these cases, especially if the driver cannot be found. In these instances, a personal injury attorney specializing in hit-and-run accidents can help.
