Hit-and-Run Crash

The Florida hit-and-run auto accident lawyers of Farah and Farah remind drivers they are required to talk to law enforcement if they are involved in any type of crash. Of course if there are injuries, they are expected to render aid. To do so may mean that they could save a life. To fail to do so may mean someone dies alone on the side of the road from their injuries.
