The youngest winner ever of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles' (CAALA) celebrated Trial Lawyer Of The Year award, Mr. Alder has also been honored by his peers in the legal profession as one of the Top 100 Super Lawyers in Southern California in 2008 and 2009.
Los Angeles Hit and Run Accident Litigators, Southern California Pedestrian Trial Lawyers
When a defendant flees the scene of an accident, he/she was often driving while drunk or under the influence of an illegal substance. Such hit-and-run accidents require immediate action to bring the defendant to justice and determine if criminal as well as civil charges need to be filed.
Victims of hit and run accidents need an experienced personal injury accident attorney who understand how to fully prosecute their case and recover all the damages to which the injured party is entitled.
Contact an Attorney as Soon as Possible After a Hit-and-Run Accident
If you have been a victim of a hit and run accident, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. When the driver of the vehicle involved is known, doing a proper background check and determining whether the defendant was driving at the time should happen immediately.
Time is also a critical factor in locating an unknown driver. Our attorneys will attempt to locate witnesses, look at surveillance tapes, or use other investigative techniques to help police locate a driver in a hit and run accident.
Because evidence must be collected and preserved, and witnesses should be located and interviewed as soon as possible, the longer you wait before contacting a lawyer, the harder it may be to prove your case.
Contact us today to tell us about your case. We offer a free initial consultation and work on a contingency basis. If we are able to take your case, you do not pay until we win for you.
Hit-and-Run Verdicts and Settlements
AlderLaw's accident lawyers have experience with hit-and-run cases; for example, Mr. Alder received a $4 million verdict for the wrongful death of a girl killed in an accident with a "phantom" vehicle that could not be located prior to his involvement.
Working with witnesses, Mr. Alder identified the "phantom vehicle" through a rare bumper sticker that a witness had noticed on a car near the scene; at trial, the defendant finally tearfully admitted that he in fact drove the phantom vehicle, caused the accident and then fled the scene.
This "Perry Mason" moment, and the dogged detective work behind the scenes that resulted in it, are trademarks of AlderLaw, and the relief and closure brought to the victim's family were as important to them as the substantial verdict.
