The Los Angeles mayoral race was heavily publicized and watched by residents in and out of Los Angeles. With Karen Bass declared the winner, she is now making headlines for a recent car accident her daughter was involved in earlier this week. The hit and run accident took place in the West Adams area of Los Angeles between South La Brea and West Adams Boulevard. While no further details are known at this time, KTLA News quotes Karen Bass on the hit and run accident, “Thankfully she is not seriously hurt and is back home resting after being cared for at the hospital. I am grateful for the first responders and healthcare professionals who ensured her well-being.” Hit and run accidents are always on the rise during the holiday season and can make things more complicated for the victim who is now dealing with things like medical bills, missed work and more. Here's what you need to know about Los Angeles hit and run accidents:
· Seek medical attention: Any time you are involved in any type of personal injury accident, you need to seek any and all medical attention as soon as possible just as Karen Bass's daughter did. It will not only document your injuries but also how the accident happened.
· File a personal injury lawsuit: YES, you can still file a personal injury lawsuit stemming from a hit and run accident. This is true even if you played a role in the accident that caused the hit and run (i.e. jaywalking). How? Filing a claim against the uninsured motorist coverage of your own insurance. But just because it is your own insurance company that you pay to be on your side does not mean that they are going to hand over the money you deserve which is one of the many reasons why you want to work with a highly experienced Southern California hit and run law firm to handle your case.
