If so, you may have grounds to pursue legal action against the person who left you or your loved one to die.
Call Balamuth Law today and get the facts on your legal rights in a comprehensive case consultation. Not only is a hit and run of this sort considered a felony in the state of California, any damages sustained by the victim(s) can be sought in a civil claim.
Unfortunately, many hit and run accidents result either in the victim’s demise or in terrible injuries such as:
- Severe abrasions, lacerations and burns
- Fractures, both simple and compound
- Permanent loss of sight or hearing
- Head, neck or spinal trauma
If you or a loved one has experienced one or more of these types of injury, we encourage you to contact our office at your earliest possible convenience. We have successfully represented many individuals over the past decades and we have the track record to back it up. Our practice will use every resource available to hold these criminals accountable for their actions. But it is up to you to make the first move. Call Balamuth Law today at (925) 254-1234 and schedule a confidential case consultation with a top Oakland car accident lawyer. Depending on the severity of the accident and the ensuing injuries, you could be entitled to significant compensation from one or more of the following categories:
- Ambulance or emergency air-lift transportation
- Extensive hospitalization and treatment
- Long-term physician and specialist care
- Loss of wages or employment
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
When Should I Contact an Attorney?
In order to file your claim on time and maximize your legal team’s ability to build a solid case, we highly recommend you contact an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you are able to establish a relationship with your attorney and retain their services, the quicker they will be able to begin investigating your claim. Also, the state of California maintains a deadline on all personal injury claims. This means that you have a limited amount of time following your collision to file a lawsuit. Failure to submit your case within the statute of limitations can mean a complete forfeiture of your rights and potential compensation.
