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

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • After Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”
