In the year 2020, the Texas Department of Transportation recorded 2,565 accidents in Irving Texas alone. Over 600 of those injuries led to injuries ranging from non-threatening to incapacitating. 58 of those crashes were deemed serious enough to be life-threatening and there were 13 fatalities resulting from those accidents. Texas Transportation Code § 550.023 requires that drivers involved in accidents that cause injuries to stop and render aid.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Hit and run drivers are not only breaking the law, but they are also increasing the risk of serious injury to the accident victim’s by not contacting emergency services immediately. If this has happened to you, you can seek legal representation. Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. is willing to take you case to trial so you get the compensation you deserve.
Why Should You Choose Trujillo and Sanchez, P.C. to Represent You?
When you’ve been injured in a hit and run accident, the driver of the other car has already shown a callousness towards both your health and the law. It’s very likely they left the scene to conceal evidence of another legal offense, such as driving without a valid license or driving under the influence. Some of them also run because they don’t have automobile insurance.
In any case, when you’re dealing with someone negligent and callous enough to flee the scene of an injury accident, seek legal representation that will never stop fighting to hold them accountable for their actions. Trujillo and Sanchez, P.C. is more than just a law firm, we’re some of the most respected personal injury trial attorneys in the state.
When you let us represent you, you’re getting a Texas Board of Legal Specialization certified law firm that led Texas in car accident jury verdicts for 2020 and 2021. You’re getting a firm that’s won over half a billion dollars for their clients since we opened our doors 15 years ago. You should let us represent you because our distinguished history of fighting and winning for our clients speaks for itself.
What Kind of Damages Can I Recover After a Hit and Run Accident?
After any accident where you’ve suffered injuries, you are legally allowed to seek compensation for those injuries from the responsible party (the other driver). These recoverable damages from hit and run accidents include, but are not limited to the following:
- Lost income: You can seek reimbursement for any income you lost while you were recovering from accident-related injuries.
- Medical bills: You can seek reimbursement or payment of any medical bills related to your accident.
- Pain and suffering: Some damages don’t have a direct financial value, but we can still seek compensation for pain and suffering, along with any other intangible losses.
When we consult with you about your case, we’ll take a full look at all the damages you’ve suffered and demand that from the negligent driver. Because there are so many variables in estimating recoverable damages, we can’t give you an idea of what your case may be worth until we speak to you.
Who Is Liable in a Hit and Run Accident?
Drivers who flee the scene after an accident often do so because they are at fault. If the driver has insurance, our firm will pursue the driver’s insurance company. However, if the driver committed hit and run because they didn’t have insurance, can pursue a lawsuit against the driver.
How Does Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. Get Paid if I Can’t Afford a Lawyer?

We’re here to help you hold negligent hit and run drivers accountable for their actions, not nickel and dime you for our services. The way we see it, Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. doesn’t win unless you win too.
