California Requires Drivers to Stop After an Accident
Driving away from the scene of an accident in Pasadena is against the law. Drivers could face charges under Vehicle Code (VEH) §20001 or §20002 for leaving the scene of a collision. This means the court can use misdemeanor or felony charges to prosecute a hit and run.
However, despite the legal penalties for fleeing from the scene of an accident, some drivers violate the law. They may strike your vehicle and just keep driving, leaving you with serious injuries. Some hit and run drivers in Pasadena even cause fatalities.
We’re here to help if you were hurt by a hit and run driver. We may offer you assistance if the driver who hit you goes unidentified. We’re also here to help if the police find the driver who caused your hit and run accident.

Your Insurance Company and Pasadena Hit and Run Accidents
Many drivers are unsure how to get compensation after a hit and run accident. After all, if you cannot identify the driver who struck you, can you get damages? You may receive compensation through your insurance policy in some cases.
Allow a Pasadena hit and run lawyer to review your insurance policy. You could get damages to cover your losses if you carry an underinsured/uninsured driver’s policy. We understand the best way to file a claim with insurance agents.
We also know that insurance agents may try to deny you compensation after an accident. They may try to argue that your injuries were not caused by the collision. Make sure that you get medical care quickly after an accident. This may help show that the accident directly led to your injuries.
Investigate a Hit and Run Accident in Pasadena
The police may identify the driver who caused your hit and run accident in Pasadena. It’s important that you report your accident to the police as soon as it occurs. The police may ask you for information about the driver who hit you. This information may include:
- A description of the driver
- The make, model, and color of the driver’s car
- The driver’s license plate number
If the police find the driver who hit you, a lawyer may take steps to show that the driver caused your accident. Note that fleeing the scene of a collision does not guarantee that the other driver was at-fault for the wreck. Your lawyer may investigate the accident by interviewing witnesses and working with accident reconstruction specialists.
We’re ready to file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company in Pasadena. Let us work to settle your claim right now. We may also help you file a lawsuit against the driver who struck you. This could allow you to get compensation through the court system. Discuss your options in more detail by reaching out to us.
