California state law mandates that the driver of a motor vehicle involved in an accident must stop and render reasonable assistance to the injured party or parties. Failure to do so can give rise to criminal charges and civil lawsuits. Anyone injured or whose loved one has been killed in a hit-and-run accident in California should seek the help of an experienced injury attorney who can help them seek justice and compensation from the negligent party and his or her insurance company.
