Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help with Hit-and-Run Cases
Special issues can arise in a personal injury claim which can make it very difficult to litigate the case. An example of a special issue is a hit-and-run accident, where the driver who causes the injury flees the accident scene. It may then be difficult for the victim to identify the driver, and with it, recover the damages to which he or she is entitled. A hit-and-run case solved Last June, Los Angeles police arrested a driver who allegedly hit a 33-year old cyclist, and then drove off and left him to die. The 21-year old culprit was arrested thanks to the tip of a citizen who came out and identified the offender. Records say the drive was traveling more than 80 mph at the time of the accident, which occurred at Figueroa Street on the morning of June 26, 2015.
