Helping You Pursue Justice & Recovery after an Accident

Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime in California. The law requires drivers to stop when they collide with another vehicle or person to determine injuries and provide identification papers. If a hit and run accident has left you feeling powerless and devastated, seek qualified legal counsel from an attorney at Crane Flores, LLP. We have extensive experience handling these types of cases and are diligent in working to get you the justice you deserve.

Common Causes of Hit & Run Accidents

Fear is typically the motivating factor behind a hit and run vehicle accident.

Some of the contributing factors that cause a driver to be afraid and leave the scene of an accident include:

  • Fear of the authorities and consequences of the wreck
  • The state of being an unlicensed or otherwise illegal driver
  • Fear of losing driving privileges
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Inexperience or panic
  • Speed and loss of control of a vehicle

All too often, negligent drivers did something wrong before the incident. This heightens their fear and shame, which may cause them to run. Crashes due to cell phone use, especially texting while driving, are on the rise in Ventura and Oxnard. Wrecks caused by a driver under the influence of drugs and drunk driving accidents are also quite common in the Santa Barbara area. We thoroughly investigate your accident and help you gain the compensation and justice you deserve for your injuries.

Tips for Handling an Accident when the Other Party Flees

Every hit and run accident is unique, so we give you personalized advice and representation to meet your legal needs. Whether your situation involved a motorcycle accident or a large commercial truck accident, we are prepared to help you.

Below are a few general tips on how to handle the situation when the negligent driver flees the scene of the wreck:

  • Call the police right away. Do not chase the other driver, even though you may be tempted to do so. This only puts you and other drivers in danger.
  • If possible, record as much information about the accident as you can. Helpful facts include the make, model, color, license plate number, or any other details you can recall about the vehicle that struck you.
  • File an accident report with the authorities, even if you can give them only minimal information. A report is important if you need to file an insurance claim.
  • Contact a personal injury attorney who is skilled in handling hit and run cases.

We have won many hit and run cases in the area. Our Oxnard hit and run lawyers can help you understand your legal options and take action against the negligent parties. We are diligent in pursuing your right to recovery and we do not settle for less than what you deserve.
