Number of Hit and Run Accidents Increasing Rapidly

Number of Hit and Run Accidents Increasing Rapidly

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento car accident and personal injury lawyer. Hit and runs are illegal and those who commit this act face serious penalties in California. The numbers of hit and run accidents have grown in the past decade. Because it is a common occurrence, knowing how you can help if you are injured in a hit and run accident can assist authorities in finding the driver. In this way, you can recover compensation to pay for the injuries you have suffered as well as time lost at work.
