High-speed police chases never result in a positive outcome for criminals on the run. It isn’t common to see a news report involving an arrest in the aftermath of a high-speed chase or what else may have happened to the person being chased. Recently in Houston, a woman was arrested following a police chase after an HPD unit attempted to make a routine traffic stop.

News reports typically focus on the consequences of the individuals being chased and the officers placed in the high-risk situations; however, in many cases, there are innocent bystanders who have been hurt in the chase. Little is often discussed about what happens to individuals hit by a vehicle on the run, which often results due to the reckless behaviors of drivers who attempt to evade the law. However, many sustain vehicle damage, or are injured and don’t know where to turn.
An arrest does not mitigate the damages for innocent victims when drivers hurt them while on the run from police. Civil action is also sometimes necessary to help victims recover damages. The injury accident lawyers of 1800 CAR WRECK in Houston can help innocent hit-and-run accident bystanders assess their legal options in holding reckless drivers accountable for their actions.
