Hit and Run Accidents

San Diego Hit and Run Accident Lawyer

In recent years, the number of hit and run accidents has risen sharply in San Diego, Los Angeles, and other large cities throughout the state. In 2012, more than 18,823 individuals were injured in California hit and run accidents. In the same year, more than 193 people were tragically killed in hit and run accidents across the state. Leaving the scene of an accident that has resulted in the injury or death of another person is unforgivable, and the aggressive hit and run accident attorneys in Los Angeles at the Mitchell Law Corporation are committed to protecting victims’ legal rights.

A Driver’s Duty

Per California law, a driver that is involved in an accident resulting in the injury or death of another individual must stop at the scene and remain there until authorities have arrived. According to California Vehicle Code 20003, drivers must also cooperate with authorities and assist injured individuals in any way possible.

If a driver flees and is apprehended, the driver may face both criminal and civil lawsuits. Unfortunately, if authorities are unable to locate a missing driver, victims are often left with fewer legal options.

Are you unaware of what your legal options are? If you are unsure of what your legal options are, seek professional representation now. You have a limited amount of time to file a claim. Do not risk losing the opportunity to file a claim and purse monetary compensation.
