If you have been the victim of a hit and run accident, speak with a
Santa Monica personal injury attorney at McGee, Lerer & Associates. Daniel McGee and Catherine Lerer are a husband and wife team with over 35 years of combined experience representing serious injury victims. Without an attorney protecting you, the at-fault driver's insurance company will take advantage of you and pay you as little as they can get away with. Do not let that happen. You have a right to be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If your vehicle was damaged in a car accident, but repairable, you are also entitled to be compensated for the "diminished value" of your vehicle. When you go to sell or trade in your car down the line, you will get less for it because of its accident history. This reduced value is referred to as "diminution in value." Under California law, the other driver's insurance company must pay you for this. The insurance company will not tell you about this right. You must demand it.
