Liability In Car Accidents Involving Hit-And-Run Drivers
Drivers have a responsibility to operate their cars in a reasonably safe manner and to give cyclists adequate room. Cyclists are often hit by drivers that are inattentive or otherwise speeding. If a driver is negligent in the United States and causes an accident, a victim will typically be able to file a bodily injury claim in order to recover compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Moreover, if a truck driver was working at the time of an accident the company that they work for may face vicarious liability. It’s important to seek the legal advice of an experienced car accident attorney after a collision. In California, personal injury attorneys work entirely off a contingency basis, meaning that you don’t owe them anything unless they recover for you.
