)-- California drivers under the state’s law are obligated to stay at the scene of an accident they have caused or been involved in and cannot run from the scene of accident or when they have hit an object, property or person.

Hit and run cases may result in permanent damages or serious injuries to a person and if the driver flees from the scene, he or she can be criminally charged with a hit and run. The charges could very well go up to be of felony or misdemeanor in case of very serious accidents and incarceration is also possible. However, it’s not easy to identify culprits of hit and run cases as tracing negligent drivers is not easy. Victims have to rely on witness accounts and other clues to find the driver and press charges.
Mark Grayson from Grayson & Grayson law firm emphasized the need to pursue hit and run cases legally and commented, “A hit and run case is among the more complicated injury scenarios. The victims not only have to bear the trauma of injuries but also go through the stressful search for the perpetrator. If you've been the victim of a hit and run, you should contact the local Law Enforcement Agency immediately, and definitely within 24 hours of the accident. They can be extremely helpful in tracking down the driver who fled the scene and a formal accident report filed with law enforcement may be required in the event there may be an uninsured motorist claim. There may be extreme damage done to property or an individual may suffer serious injuries as a result of the accident. In either scenarios the repercussions have to be borne by the one on the receiving end of damages. That’s why it’s important that once the victim has identified the responsible driver that caused harm perfected an uninsured motorist claim, he or she timely files a claim and demands just compensation.”
Hit and run cases should be handled by professional LA personal injury lawyers. Personal injury attorneys are qualified to take up motor vehicle accident cases, car wrecks as a result of negligent or wrongful operation of a vehicle where drivers leave the scene of accident.
“Lawyers representing hit and run culprits try really hard to get their clients acquitted of felony charges and get them reduced to misdemeanor, the sentence for which often times lets the negligent driver get away with community service and a small fine. Experienced personal injury lawyers on the other hand will fight for the just claim and ensure that victims have been fully compensated for the loss suffered by them.”
