Hit-&-Run Accident Lawyers in Walnut Creek
When the driver of a vehicle who has caused an accident leaves the scene before checking on the other driver or individual, exchanging insurance / contact information, or even reporting the accident, it is considered a hit-and-run.
Drivers often flee the scene of the accident when they are:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving without a license, while under suspension, or without insurance
- Afraid of the repercussions for any reason
- Driving a stolen vehicle or without permission

Seeking Compensation After a Hit-&-Run Accident
What options are available to victims of hit-and-run accidents? Typically, auto insurance policies include coverage for accidents caused by hit-and-run drivers.
