Were you or someone you love a pedestrian injured by a car in Mission Viejo? Who will pay for the injuries sustained by the injured pedestrian? What happens if the driver responsible for those injuries left the scene in a hit and run accident?

The high number of pedestrians in Mission Viejo presents challenges for drivers in many environments. A vehicle may be making a left hand turn at an intersection or simply pulling into or driving within a parking lot or the driveway of a business when a pedestrian is suddenly in front of or behind their vehicle as they back out of a space.
One in every nine injury accidents in California involves a pedestrian.

If you are injured in a hit and run accident and the driver cannot ultimately be identified the primary source of recovery for your injuries will be your own UM/UIM insurance. Uninsured Motorist and UnderInsured Motorist (UM/UIM) is some of the least expensive and most valuable insurance you can purchase. The Law Firm of Rivers Morrell highly recommends you maximize your UM/UIM coverage. Many drivers in California have the minimum state coverage or no insurance at all.
