Liability In Car Accidents
Car accidents can leave victims with lasting injuries and high medical bills. It often takes years for a person to even be fully aware of the extent of their injuries. It is a felony to leave the scene of an accident that causes great bodily injury. According to California Vehicle Code 20001 (a), “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.”
The statute goes on to read, “If the accident described in subdivision (a) results in death or permanent, serious injury, a person who violates subdivision (a) shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not less than 90 days nor more than one year, or by a fine of not less than one thousand dollars ($1,000) nor more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both that imprisonment and fine.”
The victim of a car accident can seek justice by filing a bodily injury claim against the negligent driver. A car accident attorney can help you get financial compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. There are statute of limitations associated with being able to file a claim, so it’s important to act quickly.
