Hit-and-Run Accidents in Sacramento
The law in California explicitly states that a driver involved in an accident is obligated to stop. They are required to give out their contact information to any other people involved and wait for law enforcement to arrive. Should the driver leave the scene before both of those things have been done, the driver is considered to have participated in a hit and run.
The single exception to this law is if the driver left the scene to procure vital medical attention. Even under those circumstances, however, the best course of action is still to leave your contact information (name, phone number, address, etc.) with the other driver before you remove yourself from the scene.
If you or someone you love has been injured as the result of a hit-and-run accident, then California law allows for you to receive financial compensation for any damages that the other driver’s carelessness has cost you.
