It is an irresponsible, heartless and even cowardly practice that is sweeping through Southern California and the city of Torrance. Hit and run drivers are on the run. In fact, California is the leader of hit and run accidents in the nation and it’s been referred to by the CPH as an “Epidemic”. Nonetheless, if you’re the victim of a hit and run in Torrance you should know your rights.
What do you do when what used to happen in the news is now happening in your neighborhood or worse still, it has happened to you? If knowledge is power then it is also true in a hit and run situation. For instance, if the hit and run driver is never found, it does not necessarily mean that you will not get any compensation. An attorney with experience in personal injury and car accident cases will be able to look for coverage through other means such as health or homeowner’s insurance. Also, a good attorney should be able to determine if there may be other parties at fault in the accident. For example, the city may be at fault if poor signaling and/or lack of reasonable maintenance in part contributed to the accident. If you’re involved in a hit and run in Torrance, call LA Jewish Lawyer at 855 977 1212 for a Free Consultation with a top attorney.
On the other hand, if the driver is found as it is often the case, recovery typically becomes quicker and easier. Even if criminal charges are dropped or dismissed, the driver will still be responsible for your medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability or permanent disability, lost wages and possibly even punitive damages. The latter is compensation determined by the court as a form of punishment for the reckless behavior. An experienced top attorney from the LA Jewish Lawyer network can ensure no avenue is left unexplored in order for you to get the best possible compensation that you deserve.
The California legal system is complex and as a result, rigged to favor the ones who know the ins and outs of such system.
