We travel in motor vehicles for a wide variety of reasons. Because of this, motorists and passengers can be in vehicle for short periods of time or extend period of time. No matter the length of time a motorist is driving, it is vital that a driver is always attentive, follows the rules of the road and is accountable for any wrongdoings. Unfortunately, it is not only negligent drivers one must worry about. One must also consider the idea that a driver may not comply with law and stop following a car accident he or she caused.
According to recent reports, authorities in San Diego are still searching for a hit-and-run driver. Preliminary investigation revealed that the crash involved two vehicles and two pedestrians.

No matter the severity of the injuries or the damages involved in a car accident, it is important that victims become fully informed on their situation. Even in the event of a hit-and-run, victims have the ability to take action and prepare to hold another party accountable. This can help them understand the process, initiate investigation and even pursue an action that helps him or her recover compensation to address losses and damages related to the accident.
