Hit-and-Run Accidents in Santa Ana
California law demands that all drivers who are involved in an accident that causes any injury or death to remain at the scene until the police arrive. Drivers are also required to give the police contact information such as their name, address, and vehicle registration number. In addition to this, drivers are also compelled to render reasonable aid to any injured parties like calling 911 or administering CPR.
When a driver flees the scene of an accident, getting financial compensation can become very difficult. If the offending driver is able to be identified, a claim could be brought against them. There are also legal avenues available in the event that the offending driver is not caught.
If you have been involved in any type of accident, it is in your best interest to confer with a personal injury attorney before you speak to anyone else. The driver’s insurance company will typically try to get you to settle the claim for the smallest amount of money possible. Your personal injury attorney will have the skill and the knowledge to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.
