Hit-and-Run Accidents

Hit-and-run accidents are becoming a common reality throughout the state of California. If a driver was involved in an accident in California, the state law requires that the driver must report the accident to the Department of Motor Vehicles if property damage valued at $750 or more occurred, if a victim in any party has suffered injuries or if a death resulted from the accident. It is crucial to report your accident to authorities immediately to track down the motorist that crashed into you and drove away from the scene. Consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer for more information.
