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.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”

  • I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn and Swartzon recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had. The entire staff at Cohn and Swartzon were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
