Bakersfield Hit-and-Run 

In California, hit-and-run accidents happen every week, causing serious results for those involved. If you have been involved in one of these accidents, we offer our condolences to you and hope that you receive a speedy recovery during this difficult time.

If a driver makes the decision to flee the accident after they have struck you, they are breaking the law. If they are caught, this means that criminal penalties will stem from their case. If police construct a police report blaming them for the accident, there is a good chance that you will be able to use this information to further your claim.

Drivers who are involved in accidents are obliged to stop and check on those involved. Because you were involved in a pedestrian accident and you are a vulnerable party on our roadways, there is a good chance that serious injuries resulted. Drivers who fail to stop for a pedestrian after they have been struck are committing a negligent act on our roadways.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured due to the wrongdoing of another individual, you have rights and we want to speak with you at the Los Angeles Injury Group. Call us today for more information on how we can help at 310-954-7248.
