California Hit-and-Run Crashes

A hit-and-run crash can be devastating for many reasons. First, hit-and-run accidents tend to involve serious injuries to their victims. Following a hit-and-run crash, victims may suffer from broken bones, head trauma, fractures, and more. These injuries lead to costly medical treatment, missed work, and an inability to provide financial support for yourself and your family.

Second, hit-and-run collisions present complicated issues regarding compensation. In some crashes, the driver is never located and the injured person is in a difficult spot when it comes to finding compensation. In these cases, it is vital that you speak with an experienced California car accident lawyer right away.
