Hit and Run Accident

Long Beach Hit and Run Accident Attorney

Representing Hit and Run Accident Victims in and around Long Beach, Lakewood, Bellflower, and Compton

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 bicyclists, pedestrians, and 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.

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 to the accident who obtained identifying information, chances of tracking down the guilty party can be difficult for law enforcement. If there were 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. An accident lawyer with our firm has the experience to help injured victims gain relief from the enormous medical bills which can result.
