Everyone understands that human beings make mistakes, and sometimes a good person can negligently cause a crash. That said, when an accident occurs we should be able to count on our fellow human beings to stay at the scene and try to help. Unfortunately, hit and run motorcycle accidents are more common than one might hope.
Hitting and Running is a Crime
Missouri Statutes Section 577.060 provides a punishment for “leaving the scene of an accident” anytime an operator of a vehicle is “involved in an accident resulting in injury or death.” That means that all drivers need to stay at the scene even if they think that the accident was somebody else’s fault. Minor hit and runs are generally treated as “Class A” misdemeanors under Missouri Statutes Section 558.011. That means a hit-and-run driver is subject to a $2,000 fine or a prison term of up to one year. If the hit-and-run driver causes physical injury or damage in excess of one thousand dollars, then the crime will be a “Class E” felony, which comes with a possible jail sentence of up to four years. It does not take much to cause damages of $1,000, so hitting and running will often be a felony.
Uninsured Motorist Reporting
Missouri has a special uninsured motorist reporting requirement that says that the State must be notified of any uninsured accidents involving injury, death, or more than $500 in damages. The simple reality is that hit-and-run drivers often run because they are uninsured. Missouri uses reports of uninsured drivers to suspend the driver’s license of the uninsured motorist until damages from the crash are paid. So reporting an uninsured driver can take that dangerous person off the road while increasing the chances that he or she will pay damages to anyone he or she injured.
Finding the Runner
The police have limited resources, and finding a hit-and-run driver may not always be at the top of their priority list. As a result, tracking down a runner to hold him or her responsible for the damage caused is not always easy. A good lawyer will have connections to top-notch private investigators that can pick up where the police left off on their investigation and carry it forward. An investigator may have more time than the police to ask nearby businesses if they have surveillance cameras that may have recorded the vehicle, or to find witnesses that may be able to offer information that can lead to obtaining a license plate number.

Mr. Dixon is highly experienced at utilizing private investigators and accident reconstructionists to find the culprit in an accident, digest what happened in a crash, and then present that story to a jury in the most understandable way. Through his work he has developed connections with both law enforcement and private consultants and he can efficiently draw on these resources as needed. In part through these methods, the Dixon Injury Firm has recovered over $35 million for wrongfully injured people in the St. Louis, Missouri area.
This includes on occasion having to recover damages from motorists that have hit the road and caused damage without the proper insurance. Sometimes winning the judgment is only half the battle, and the other half is collecting from the person that wrongfully caused an injury to our client. That could mean using the power of the courts to garnish property from the responsible party, which can mean taking a part of their paycheck or even money directly from their bank account.
