Torrance Hit-and-Run Accident 

We wish to extend our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Jonathan Valbuena as they navigate the legal system during this difficult time of turmoil and grief. You have many options if you decide to move forward with a claim.

Hit-and-run accidents almost always lead to serious results to those involved. When a driver makes the decision to flee the scene without checking on the injured person, they are committing an outright and serious crime that can lead to extreme penalties. If the driver responsible for this accident is caught by police, there is a good chance that they will be charged with their crime, which will lead to criminal penalties. From there, you can use these reports to help you receive compensation that you deserve at this time.

Accidents involving bicyclists can be devastating experiences, especially due to the fact that bicyclists have few protections from harm on our roadways. If you have lost somebody in a serious accident, you have the right to bring a claim against a negligent and responsible party. Let us help at the Los Angeles Injury Group, where we care about your case. Call us for more information today at 310-954-7248.
