It takes a lot of resources for any police department to track down suspected drivers in accidents like this. Unfortunately, a lot of these cases go unresolved due to lack of resources, or in some instances, incompetence. Victims and their families are all too often left with little help in resolving these tragedies.
Thankfully, loved ones affected by these tragedies are not bound to rely on government agencies to find closure. In my many years of experience in hit-and-run accidents, I find myself reminding families they have available to them a second option.
Third-party investigators often have much lighter caseloads. This means they are able to devote their undivided attention in seeking information. Further, they often have more refined tools, technology, and experience in this area of investigation. Most victim's families find that these investigators uncover huge amounts of information that is often overlooked by their government counterparts.
Thanks to the benefit of third-party investigations, there will always be another option for victims seeking information.
