Victims of California car accidents fortunate to escape injury

When traffic comes to a stop at night on a California highway, there is a pretty good chance that there is some trouble ahead. Car accidents may not always mean serious injury, but when the ones who cause the crash do not take responsibility, it adds to the frustration. Even when one faces seemingly minor injuries from a hit and run, that person may be due some compensation.

A recent accident occurred in the eastbound lane of a local highway when a minivan collided with another car around 9:30 p.m. The incident brought traffic to a standstill, causing another fender bender. Meanwhile, the driver of the minivan got out of his vehicle and ran from the scene. He was found sometime later hiding in a nearby ditch among the grasses. Police suspect he may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and they found drug paraphernalia in his vehicle.

At the scene, the injuries to the people in the other car were called minor. However, no one can predict the seriousness of car crash injuries, and sometimes those aches and pains do not show up until some days after the incident. Those in the other car may have been fortunate to escape serious injury or even death, but others involved in felony hit-and-run accidents are not always so lucky.

Some accident victims face medical bills, physical therapy costs and loss of wages. Others leave their families with funeral expenses and untold grief. In California, people who are injured or who have lost loved ones in car accidents due to someone else's negligence often turn to a dedicated personal injury attorney who can walk them through the process of seeking compensation for their pain and suffering. Victims often feel comforted having an advocate for their rights.
