  • Our Michigan car accident lawyers are participating in the Hit-and-Run Reward Program created to assist police authorities in identifying drivers that cause injuries so that they can face the legal penalties imposed for their criminal actions. Our Michigan auto accident attorneys choose to participate knowing this program will help bring justice to victims of hit-and-run accidents and their families.

    How Does The Hit-and-Run Reward Program Work?

    The Hit-and-Run Reward Program allows a person who has witnessed a hit-and-run to report the accident and offender anonymously and in return be awarded a reward if there is an arrest or felony charge. To create such a program, our law firm has teamed up with We Tip to provide an effective, anonymous hit-and-run reporting system. If you witness a hit-and-run, call 800-6-Hit-N-Run (800-644-8678). When calling the number you will be asked if you would like to receive a reward if there is an arrest and felony conviction. Rewards of up to $1,000 can be given out.

    Stop Michigan Hit-and-Run Car Accidents

    The goal of the Hit-and-Run Program is to stop hit-and-runs by providing means and incentive to report offenders. This ultimately will save lives and make our streets safer.

    Each year, our Michigan auto accident lawyers represent victims of hit-and-run accidents and their families whose lives have been devastated by hit-and-run drivers. We understand that those moments to summon medical attention after an accident takes place are precious and can mean a difference between life and death. With drivers knowing that witnesses to a hit-and-run accident have a means to easily and anonymously report the crime, fewer drivers will flee the scene of the accident, meaning more injured people are likely to get medical attention quicker, saving lives and reducing the seriousness of the injury.

    Hit-and-Run Accident Statistics

    The problem of hit-and-run driving is a serous one. In 2007 alone, 4675 pedestrians were killed by a hit-and-run motor vehicle. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one out of every 5 pedestrians killed on the roads die from hit-and-run.

    From 1999 to 2001 hit and runs have jumped 19% and continue to rise since 2003. Hit-and-run accidents are too common and can be prevented.
