Hit-&-Run Crashes in San Diego
Hit-and-run collisions are particularly traumatic, often leaving victims unable to seek necessary medical treatment. There were 337 deadly hit-and-runs reported in California in 2016. That’s the highest reported figure ever recorded, and a 60 percent increase from 2009.
Drivers who flee the scene of an accident are committing a crime. These collisions overwhelmingly impact pedestrians and cyclists who are unable to pursue their assailants. Sometimes, injured parties can recover lost compensation with the help of a qualified California car crash attorney.
