How & Why Hit & Run Accidents Occur
Highly populated metro areas like Las Vegas are uniquely vulnerable to
hit-and-run accidents for a variety of reasons. Though it might seem that
more people would yield more witnesses, the bystander effect actually makes it
less likely for someone to intervene on behalf of the victim. They assume someone
else will, making it easier for the perpetrator to escape notice.
Drivers may flee the scene of an automobile accident for a variety of reasons,
but most often it is because:
- They are intoxicated or fear they might be.
- They are driving without a license.
- They are a young and inexperienced driver.
Las Vegas roads are full of drivers that are young, inexperienced, or intoxicated,
resulting in a large amount of hit-and-run accidents. Las Vegas car accident lawyer
