California Hit and Run Accidents

Drivers in California are required to remain on scene following a crash.  This is so they can exchange information with the other driver and cooperate with any police investigation that may ensue.  Leaving the scene of a crash is a criminal offense, punishable by potential jail time and other criminal penalties.

In this case, police have yet to locate the hit and run suspect.  Once located, the suspect faces a potential civil lawsuit for wrongful death.  Hit and run cases are especially complicated.  They present many issues, including potential problems with insurance coverage related to the crash.

A good attorney will assist you in receiving compensation for a hit and run crash.  Even if the other driver is never found, your attorney may be able to help you recover from other sources, including your own insurance policy.
