Los Angeles Motorcycle Lane Splitting Accident Lawyer
Help for Victims of Hit and Run Collisions
In many cases, motorcycle accidents are quite dangerous, resulting in serious injuries. When another vehicle is involved in the accident, like a truck, van or automobile, the outcome could be life-threatening for the motorcycle rider. Unfortunately, due to the number of motorists and bikes on the road in Southern California, these kinds of accidents happen all the time. What makes these accidents worse is when the at-fault driver flees the scene. This is known as a hit and run, and in California it's a criminal offense.
Sadly, not every hit and run driver gets caught, leaving the victims and their families struggling to make sense of a senseless situation. If you have recently been involved in a hit and run motorcycle accident, or lost a loved one in such a collision, the time to take legal action could be now. Even if the guilty party hasn't been caught, you can still potentially collect financial compensation for your injuries through your own insurance policy. On the other hand, if they have been arrested, they may face criminal charges on top of the civil claim you could be submitting against them. In either instance, the Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at Kahn Roven, LLP are prepared to represent your interests both in and out of the courtroom.

Why Would Someone Flee The Scene of an Accident?
Southern California – especially LA County – has an incredibly high rate of hit and run accidents. There are roughly 20,000 such collisions every year. Not all hit and run accidents result in injuries or deaths, but the number of hit and run accidents is staggering.
But, why would someone drive away from the scene of an accident – even if another person wasn't injured? In most instances it can be assumed that the at-fault driver would rather risk trying to escape than face the music on whatever illegal activity they might be engaged in. This can be just about anything, including:
- Street racing
- Drunk driving
- Transporting large amounts of drugs
- Uninsured or driving without a license
- Inexperienced, incompetent or underage driver
This is just a small sample of the potential reasons someone would run from an accident. Whatever the circumstances may be, a driver's failure to stop and render aid is a crime.
