Help for the Injured Victim
At Johnson Attorneys Group, it is just as much of a priority for us to help the police and other law enforcements officials locate the hit-and-run drivers as it is to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries and expenses. Anytime a motorist hits another vehicle or pedestrian and then flees the scene without contacting that person, it is considered to be a hit-and-run accident. While a person at-fault is obligated by law to stop immediately after the collision, this is not always the case. Leaving the scene of an accident that involved injuries or even fatalities is a serious crime and is considered a felony. For legal assistance with your hit-and-run accident case, contact our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers by calling us toll-free at 800-235-6801.
