Accident injury compensation lawyers stepping up to then plate with hit and run drivers causing misery Australia wide It is the lawyers' job to fight for peoples' rights and get justice. Hit and run is an awful incident where it can be hard to get closure and some level of justice knowing that person is still out there running free, failing to face up to their responsibilities and potentially putting others at risk. It is a scary thought and the authorities will catch up with them at some point.

This month in South East Queensland there have been a few fatal incidents. A father, 41 was killed by a hit and run driver as he was cycling across Tallebugera bridge late at night. A 34-year-old woman was left in the gutter after being hit and dragged by a car in Southport. In Brisbane, a 16-year-old girl died when she was hit by a car while trying to cross Moggill Road at Bellbowrie.

All these incidents suggest negligence and where there is blame there is a claim for motor vehicle accident compensation that is due to the injured party or family members of the deceased party. Even when the driver is unknown there may still be entitled to an motor accident injury compensation claim. In these types of situations there are government schemes in place to support a person who has suffered injuries by a hit and run driver.
