Modesto Police Chase Accident

If you are somebody who has been injured in a serious accident due to the negligence of another party, you have options and we wish to extend our condolences to you.

Police chases can sometimes get out of control, even involving outside parties at times. Though most officers will call off a police chase if they believe that it is getting out of control, there is still the chance that serious results will occur at any time when a negligent driver is involved.

In this specific case, an investigation will take place to determine if the police chase was warranted and who the responsible party is for causing the accident.

It is important to move forward with your claim as quickly as possible because, under California law, you must meet the statute of limitations when you are filing. We wish to stand by your side during this difficult time as you navigate the legal system and work toward results. At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we are here for you in your time of need. Give us a call to get started today at 310-954-7248.
