Southeast Bakersfield Pedestrian Accident

In cases where a driver has engaged in a negligent action and you lose a family member as a result, you might have a case for civil damages. But what happens in a case where their actions were especially negligent and they receive criminal charges?

In cases of hit-and-run, there is a good chance that the criminal damages that result from the case will lead into your civil damages and help you to build your claim and show that the driver has acted negligently. The police report will blame them for the accident, and having this fault documented gives you a good chance at receiving the compensation you deserve.

If you have lost somebody close to you in a violent hit-and-run collision, you have options and we want to be there for your recovery. You might have the option to bring a wrongful death claim if you are a direct family member or representative of the person who died.
