San Francisco Hit-and-Run Severely Injures Bicyclist



California news reports that a 22-year-old visiting student from Australia suffered a severe personal injury following a San Francisco hit-and-run accident. According to reports, the woman was riding her bicycle northbound on Bardin Road near Sconeberg Parkway at about 8:50 a.m. when she was hit from behind by a pickup truck. The woman sustained a significant injury to her foot.

If you or anyone you love has been injured in a hit and run accident, it’s important to consult with a top Rancho Cordova personal injury law attorney right away. A knowledgeable accident lawyer can begin an investigation into all of the factors that may have caused or contributed to a particular incident.

Most states including California require that a driver stop as soon as is safe following an accident. California Vehicle Code Sec. 20001 provides that any driver regardless of fault must stop after an accident that involves property damage or personal injury and exchange identifying information. In the event you are not the owner of the car, you must also provide the name and address of the registered owner.

In spite of laws requiring drivers to stop, people may still flee the scene of an accident for a variety of reasons. Many times, individuals simply panic and don’t know what to do. They may be scared, but then later contact the authorities to report an accident. Other times, a hit-and-run accident may be the result of drunk driving. In these situations a driver may fear arrest and fail to stop, making the situation and potential penalties even worse. Whatever the motivation, it’s always better to stop than to flee the scene of an accident.

The good news is that if you have been injured in a California hit and run car crash you may still be able to recover for your injuries. With the help of evidence collected at the scene – such as statements from bystanders or other witnesses - an experienced hit and run accident attorney can help identify the responsible party and get you the compensation you deserve.

For more information or if you or a loved one has been injured in a hit and run accident, contact a dedicated Rancho Cordova hit-and-run attorney and personal injury attorney at Sette Law Office for an immediate consultation.
