Liability In Hit-And-Run Accidents
It is a felony to flee the scene of an accident that results in bodily injury. According to California Vehicle Code 2001, “The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident and shall fulfill the requirements of Sections 20003 and 20004.” Any person that is injured in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. If the accident was caused by a dangerous intersection a city may even face liability.
