San Diego Hit and Run Lawyer
Leaving the Scene of an Accident
Hit and run is an offense that involves leaving the scene of an auto accident. When a driver is involved in an auto accident of any kind, he or she has the legal obligation to stop as soon as is safely possible to render assistance if necessary and to exchange contact information with the other driver or with the owner of any property damaged in the collision. The failure to stop at the scene is actually a criminal offense which may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony under California law, depending upon the extent of property damage and whether anyone was injured.
If you or someone you know has been accused of a hit and run, please contact an attorney immediately. You need a legal professional on your side to defend your rights and help you avoid imprisonment, driver’s license suspension, fines, and the other criminal penalties which may result from a conviction for this offense. The victim or victim’s family may also try to pursue a lawsuit against you in civil court, and this may mean that you will face paying compensatory damages to the victim in addition to any criminal penalties you may face. Having competent San Diego criminal defense lawyers at your side means you will have the opportunity to avoid all of these serious penalties.
