San Diego Pedestrian Hit and Run Attorneys

Pedestrian Hit and Run Accident Claim

If you were hit by a vehicle and suffered injuries as a pedestrian, you have a right to seek compensation from the driver at fault. A hit and run driver who leaves the scene without contacting emergency services and making him or herself available to law enforcement deprives the injured that option, unless the police later apprehend the driver.

If the hit and run driver cannot be located and arrested, options are still available for pursuing compensation. Contact our San Diego accident attorneys at Jurewitz Law Group for a free consultation.

It is a serious violation to leave the scene of an accident, and for good reason. A driver involved in an accident with another vehicle must remain on the scene to render aid to the injured, as well as take responsibility for what occurred. To hit an unprotected pedestrian with a 3,000 pound moving vehicle then run from the scene, leaving the victim with potentially fatal injuries instead of calling 911 or offering assistance, is a heinous criminal act.

Uninsured/ Underinsured Motorist Insurance (UIM) in San Diego

After a pedestrian hit and run accident, if the driver is not found and arrested, who will cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses? The best source of coverage in such a case is probably your own auto insurance policy.

You should have uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance, which will cover you as a pedestrian in an accident caused by a hit and run driver. It is a good idea to maximize the amount of uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance you carry for adequate coverage in the event that such an accident occurs.

Hit and Run Statistics

According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, hit and run drivers kill nearly 1,500 people in the U.S. every year, and pedestrians have the greatest risk of death in a hit and run accident. AAA Foundation reports some alarming hit and run accident statistics:

  • Approximately 11% of all police-reported traffic crashes involve hit and run drivers.
  • Approximately 60% of all hit and run fatalities are pedestrians.
  • One in every 5 pedestrian deaths involves a hit and run driver.
