Hit-and-Run Accidents in Los Angeles
A hit-and-run crash is a very serious and devastating event for victims as well as their loved ones. Each year in Southern California, there are thousands of reported crashes where the driver chooses to flee the scene of the accident rather than remain and wait for authorities to arrive. Although it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident, especially an accident involving injury, many motorists simply disregard the law and their legal obligations and choose to flee anyway. Once these drivers are apprehended, they will likely face both civil and criminal liability for their actions.
If you have been affected by a deadly car accident in Los Angeles, you should speak with an attorney regarding your legal rights as soon as possible. Under our state’s law, you could have a claim to recovery against the other driver. In some instances, however, the driver is never located, making your recovery a more difficult proposition. In this situation, you will need to make a claim against your own insurance policy, which is known as an uninsured motorist claim. Having a skilled and experienced attorney helping you with this claim will ensure that you locate all available sources of insurance coverage and that you are not left empty-handed due to an accident that was not your fault in the first place.
