Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.
Hit and run
car accidents, often involving a
drunk driver or
unlicensed driver who is trying to flee the scene, are all too common in and around Long
Beach. Hit and run drivers can cause terrible injuries to not only motorists but also
motorcyclists. Hit and run collisions involving bike riders have surged by 42% over
the last ten years in Los Angeles County. If you have been injured in
a hit and run accident, you should seek the advice of a
Long Beach personal injury lawyer to find out about your right to compensation.
Hit and run accidents are among the most difficult crimes to solve. Police
often have little to go on, especially if there is little or no evidence
at the scene of the accident. Sometimes a video surveillance camera near
the accident site captures images of the fleeing motorist's license
plate. It is important to canvas the area to find out if a security camera
could have captured the accident. Any such surveillance footage needs
to be copied before it is recorded over.
Struck by a Hit & Run Driver? Check to see if you have Uninsured Motorist Coverage
One of the first questions we will ask you when you call our firm about
a hit and run accident is: do you have uninsured motorist coverage? This
is an optional coverage which you may or may not have purchased under
your auto insurance policy. Having "full coverage" does not
necessarily mean that you have uninsured motorist coverage. If you do
have the coverage, it will cover your injury claim if the hit and run
driver is never identified, or if the fleeing driver is identified, but
it turns out that he or she was uninsured. Read more about uninsured motorist claims
Helping Innocent Injury Victims
The number of hit and run accidents which happen each year have reached
a startling statistic of over 700,000. Unless there were vigilant witnesses

witnesses, it is important that you obtain their contact information right
away if possible. Even if there are no witnesses, it is possible that
something can be done to help you obtain compensation for your damages.
