Hit-and-Run Accidents in Modesto
Residents of California know all too well that strolling around its cities and many suburbs is quite a dangerous undertaking. This danger is only increased once the sun goes down. 72 percent of pedestrian deaths that occurred in 2013 took place at night or at dusk/dawn when the decreased amount of light makes it much harder to see.
Roughly 60 percent of hit-and-run accidents in the state of California involve pedestrians so it is imperative to understand your legal options should you ever be the victim of this type of accident.
