Deadly Hit-&-Run Crashes in California
Few things are as traumatic as being involved in a hit-and-run crash. Drivers who fail to render aid after an accident are committing a crime. Not only that but they’re also putting the lives of their victims in serious danger.
A hit-and-run happens in the United States nearly every minute. In 2016, hit-and-run fatality rates had increased by nearly 60 percent since 2006. In some cases, surviving family members can seek lost compensation with the help of a California pedestrian crash attorney.
