Paramedics quickly came to the scene and found the man lying unconscious in the middle of the road next to his wheelchair.

El Cajon Hit-and-Run Accident

Pedestrian accidents can bring extremely serious results as these people tend to have fewer protections on our roadways, but they are even more serious when a driver decides to flee the scene instead of rendering aid to the party in need. We wish to extend our condolences to the party who was so seriously injured in this accident due to negligent reasons.

Hit-and-run accidents lead to a crime. When somebody makes the decision to flee the scene of an accident without rendering aid, they are not looking out for the well-being of others and breaching the duty of care to others they owe on the roads. If police catch the hit-and-run driver and they are charged for your accident, there is a good chance that you will be able to qualify for civil damages and move forward with a claim against the negligent party.

If you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident and were seriously injured, you might be able to compensate for a variety of damages such as lost wages from missed work, medical bills, future medical costs, emotional suffering, and more. At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we know that these accidents can have a huge impact on your life and we want to stand by your side.
