Hit-&-Run Accidents in California
When you’re involved in a hit-and-run, it can be extremely traumatic. Not only are you likely injured, but the at-fault driver failed to stop and provide help. This allows injuries to worsen and become potentially life-threatening.
There were 337 fatal hit-and-run collisions reported in California in 2016. This figure is a 60 percent increase from 2009. Injured victims may feel they lack legal recourse after being injured in a hit-and-run.
