Potential Consequences of Leaving the Scene

There are many concerns for individuals charged with a hit-and-run violation or leaving the scene of an accident. We are familiar with how to defend you against many criminal consequences, including:

  • DMV points toward your driver's license
  • Probation
  • Jail
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Fines

You can be charged with a violation if you have struck a person with your vehicle, hit city property and left the scene or hit an unoccupied car and did not leave a proper note. We will be by your side to explain all of your defense options and answer any questions you may have related to any criminal charges you face.

Fighting Felony and Misdemeanor Hit-and-Run Charges

If you have caused personal injury during a hit-and-run, you could be facing felony charges. Felony charges carry much more serious consequences than misdemeanors and can impact your future greatly.

Our attorney is familiar with the many defenses to these charges and can even seek to have a Prayer for Judgment Continued. If a Prayer for Judgment Continued is granted by a judge, you may not incur any insurance increases or DMV points toward your license. We can also use this defense strategy with any traffic violations you may be charged with.
