Hit And Run Accidents
California hit-and-run laws require that all drivers involved in an auto accident stop immediately to exchange driver’s license and insurance information with the other driver – regardless of fault. Failure to do so is against the law.
When a guilty driver flees the scene of an auto accident in Bakersfield, he/she was often driving while drunk or under the influence of an illegal substance. These hit-and-run accidents are unjust for the victim and require immediate legal action in order to bring the driver to justice.
Often times, insurance companies will the very least they can get away with in a hit and run case, hoping the innocent victim accepts any low-ball offer they make. Our attorneys understand that a hit and run accident can be a traumatic, terrifying experience and that you deserve compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, damages to your vehicle, medical bills, and more.
