Pittsburgh hit-and-run victim left to die

A 46-year old Pittsburgh area man died after a fatal hit-and-run car accident. A 29-year old man is accused of leaving the scene of the accident and thus leaving the victim to lie in the road and die.

There's very little to the story. The body of the victim was found at 9:15 p.m. in the evening and this individual died the following morning. There is no information reported concerning how long the victim of this accident was lying in the road or whether his life could have been saved had he received immediate medical attention.

The individual arrested is being held in jail in lieu of $75,000 bond. Sadly, whatever criminal charges the man faces will do little to help the family of the victim who are now coping with the loss.

Hit-and-run accidents cause unnecessary complications for injured parties and their families in many ways. The deceased may have been a caregiver. Other individuals may have been dependent upon this person for their financial and emotional well being.

The family of a deceased relative killed in a hit-and-run accident should be allowed to take advantage of every legal option. Attorneys practiced in the area of personal injury and wrongful death will likely need to be consulted in order to make sure every avenue is explored so that the victim's family can be compensated for what has occurred.

No amount of money can ever make up for the loss of a loved one, but compensation can at least somewhat compensate the family members for any financial burdens placed upon them because of their loss.
