Palm Springs Car Accident Attorney

About a Hit and Run Injury

In the state of California, when a person hits another person or another person's property (i.e. a motor vehicle in a car accident), the person must stop his/her car and identify him/herself. If a driver hits another person, he/she needs to stop and speak with the person. The same holds true if the driver is involved in a collision with someone else's property.

If a driver hits another person or another person's property and then flees the scene of the accident, it is called hit and run. In California, hit and run is punishable by law. Those who commit hit and run will not only be punished criminally if convicted, but may also be held liable if third parties file car accident claims.

Hit and Run & Car Accident Law

Anytime people are struck by drivers who flee the scene of an accident, they should know that they have legal rights which they can exercise. This is especially true if people were seriously injured or incurred damage to their vehicles or other property. The best way people can exercise their legal options is by working with a car accident attorney that handles hit and run cases.

These cases can be difficult to litigate because people must figure out the identities of hit and run offenders, prove that hit and run accidents occurred and also prove that they were injured or had their property damaged. Only the most experienced hit and run lawyers will have the training and resources it takes to see hit and run cases through to the end.
