Know Your Rights After A Hit-And-Run
In California, it is considered a serious crime for at-fault drivers to leave the scene of a car accident without stopping to identify themselves. Despite this, victims of hit-and-run accidents are often left to handle the damage to their property or the cost of their injuries themselves. This can be a financially-draining and stressful time, and without legal representation, the victims of these accidents could be left to shoulder all the expenses themselves.
At Padilla Law Group, LLP, our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience serving residents in North County and the adjacent communities who have been the victims of these motor vehicle collisions. Our successful record for winning trial verdicts and our dedication to creating favorable outcomes for our clients could be key to getting you the compensation you deserve after a hit-and-run accident. We will tenaciously defend your rights and treat you with the compassion you deserve.
By Your Side After Your An Accident
Being the victim of a hit-and-run accident is taxing emotionally, physically and financially. If the driver behind the accident is found, then a claim will be filed against them and may involve a civil lawsuit or pursuing a claim against their insurance company. Unfortunately, if the driver cannot be found, you will need to file a claim with your own insurance.
