Identifying Legal Options For Victims Of Hit-And-Run Accidents In Southern California
Leaving the scene of an accident that has resulted in the injury or death of another person is unforgivable. The aggressive attorneys in Los Angeles at the Mitchell Law Corporation are committed to protecting your legal rights if you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident.
Drivers Should Not Leave The Scene Of An Accident
Per California law, a driver that is involved in an accident resulting in the injury or death of another individual must stop at the scene and remain there until authorities have arrived. According to California Vehicle Code 20003, drivers must also cooperate with authorities and assist injured individuals in any way possible.
If a driver flees and the police apprehend the driver, he or she may face both criminal and civil lawsuits. Unfortunately, if authorities are unable to locate a missing driver, victims often have few legal options.
If you are unsure of what your legal options are, seek professional representation now. You have a limited amount of time to file a claim. Do not risk losing the opportunity to file a claim and pursue monetary compensation.
