Chula Vista police investigate hit-and-run

Under California law, drivers are required to stop after they are involved in a car accident in order to render aid if possible as well as wait for authorities to arrive. Unfortunately, it was recently reported that fatal hit-and-runs are on the rise across the country and many major cities are seeing increases in hit-and-run collisions.

Chula Vista police are currently investigating a hit-and-run that took place earlier this month, according to a news report.

The collision reportedly took place Nov. 8 in the evening when a pedestrian was crossing the street at the intersection of Broadway and I Street. A vehicle apparently struck the pedestrian and then drove off, according to the CBS 8 report.

The extent of the pedestrian's injuries has not been reported.

After being injured in a hit-and-run accident, it can be very difficult for a victim to know where to turn. Victims may benefit from talking to a car accident attorney about what their rights are and how they might be able to obtain compensation for their medical bills and other costs related to the accident.

In many hit-and-run cases, the drivers are eventually apprehended and brought to justice. When that is the case, victims may be able to hold drivers responsible for their injuries by filing a personal injury claim. When hit-and-run drivers are not found, drivers may be able to obtain compensation from their own insurance companies or even other parties, in certain cases; but, this can be a difficult process so it can be important to seek legal counsel.
