At Johnson Attorneys Group, it is just as much of a priority for us to help the police and other law enforcement 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 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 LA County lawyers by calling us toll free at 800-235-6801. We can provide you with free case evaluation and help you take the right steps after your accident.
