Police Seeking Motorist Involved in Fleeing Driver Accident

Although police did not release the vehicle description that fled the scene, they are looking for it. The CHP traffic accident unit detectives are working on the case to find the driver and determine how the crash occurred. 

Assisting Injured Clients When the Driver Flees the Scene

Over the years, we’ve successfully located many motorists responsible for a fleeing driver accident in Sacramento. Holding these drivers accountable for their actions is essential, and we understand how important this is for those who have been injured. We assist in this task with our investigators, resources, and experience. Our accident investigation when the driver leaves the scene includes the following areas:

  • We find physical evidence at the scene of the fleeing driver accident in Sacramento, such as paint from the vehicle, metal pieces, and tread marks, which help identify the vehicle’s make and model.
  • We interview witnesses to the accident during our investigation of the hit-and-run accident.
  • We ensure the accuracy and completeness of the police report, which is imperative for a client’s compensation claim to be successful.
  • We analyze surveillance videos and use accident reconstruction techniques to understand the crash better. If the videos capture the accident, we can subpoena them to support your claim.
  • Our attorneys use this evidence to prepare an effective negotiation or litigation case.

Add-On Insurance for Accident Compensation

When the motorist responsible for a fleeing driver accident in Sacramento cannot be identified, it becomes difficult to compensate the victims. If the driver is located, they may have no insurance or lack the ability to pay your injury claim. In such situations, our attorneys utilize our clients’ uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

This addendum is available to all Californians with their auto insurance coverage. In this state, many uninsured and underinsured motorists exist, so many drivers are drawn to this offer. The add-on policy can cover whether a person gets hurt while driving, walking, or riding a bicycle or the driver leaves the scene of an accident. If the injured party doesn’t have this add-on policy, they can also use the coverage provided by another family member. Rates do not change.
