Hit & Run Laws in CA
In our state, we have the California Hit and Run Law, which requires every driver to stop and identify him or herself at the scene of the accident. That person must also call for emergency medical help if there are any injuries at the scene. This must be done regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
The following is required at the scene of a car accident:
- All drivers must exchange identifying information
- Provide names, address, and information about the vehicle owner
- Exchange insurance policy information
A person who is accused of leaving the scene of an accident without doing these can be subject to criminal penalties, including fines and incarceration. While this can offer accident victims justice, it does not provide for restitution. That is why our Pasadena car accident attorneys can help you investigate your case.
Hit and run accident cases present a variety of challenges, from locating the driver, to negotiating with the insurance companies. Fortunately, because we are backed by years of experience and are well-versed in handling this area of the law, we can help you find the recovery you need.
