Hit and Run Accidents in California

According to the laws of the state of California, there are two types of hit and run accidents. The first is a misdemeanor criminal charge and applies when there has been property damage. The second type of hit and run will result in a felony criminal charge and applies when injury or death has occurred as a result of the accident. It is against the law to leave the scene of an accident in California, even if you are not the driver at fault or if no one was injured. All parties involved are required to remain at the scene of the crash until law enforcement arrives, be able to exchange their information with the others involved, and take any reasonable measures necessary if someone has been injured. This generally means calling for an ambulance. It is absolutely against the law to hit someone with your car, causing them grievous bodily injury, and then to go speeding off leaving them hurt and alone in the middle of the road.

If you have sustained injuries as the victim of a hit and run accident then under California law you are entitled to collect on a number of damages that you may have suffered from as a result of the others driver’s reckless disregard for the law and for human life. These damages include but are not limited to medical bills, physical therapy, prescription, and medical device costs, psychiatrist visits for emotional distress, lost wages due to time off of work, diminished earning capacity, loss of the ability to enjoy life, and pain and suffering.
