An Injury Lawyer’s Method for Finding a Fleeing Driver in Sacramento

A hit-and-run incident takes place when a driver involved in an accident leaves the scene. Our law firm has successfully located multiple hit-and-run drivers, recognizing the importance of holding them accountable to aid our clients in obtaining compensation. To support our efforts, our firm employs investigators and various resources. The investigation of such accidents encompasses the following aspects:

  • Our investigators meticulously searched for metal and paint fragments from the fleeing driver’s vehicle in Sacramento, gathering physical evidence crucial for identifying the vehicle’s make and model.
  • Depending on the circumstances, witnesses often provide vehicle and driver identifications, adding to the case’s strength.
  • We diligently review police reports to ensure accuracy, as any mistakes can potentially jeopardize compensation claims.
  • In-depth insight into the Sacramento hit-and-run vehicle can be gained through analyzing surveillance footage and using accident reconstruction techniques. We may also subpoena surveillance camera footage if available.
  • Our skilled injury lawyers leverage the gathered evidence during negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company or in litigation in civil court to build and present a compelling case.

Getting Compensation

A fleeing driver in Sacramento may be held financially responsible when they are located. If the fleeing driver is found, he or she may not have insurance or be unable to pay your injury claim. For our clients in these situations, we assist them in using their uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. 

Coverage Against Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists

Uninsured/underinsured driver coverage is available as an add-on to California auto policies. This offer is popular among many drivers in the state since so many drivers have little or no coverage. Add-on policies offer protection to people who are injured while walking, riding their bikes, or while driving. Those injured can use coverage provided by another family member if they have it. No changes are made to the policy rates.
