Hit & Run Defense Attorney in San Diego County
Were you involved in a hit and run?
No matter how minor the accident is, California drivers are required to
stop and exchange insurance information when involved in a collision.
If you left the scene of the accident without exchanging insurance information,
you may be facing misdemeanor hit and run charges. If you left the scene
of an accident that resulted in the injury of another person, and have
been accused of being under the influence, you could be facing felony
Misdemeanor and felony convictions can result in the following:
- Jail sentence (for a misdemeanor)
- Prison sentence (for a felony)
- Fines anywhere between $1000 to $10,000
- Mandatory ignition interlock device installation (when DUI is involved)
- Substance abuse program
- Loss of license or driving privileges
- Increased insurance rates
Your hit and run charges can be favorably resolved if a seasoned lawyer
is on the case. We don't believe you should suffer such severe penalties
just because of one simple mistake. Regardless of fault, your rights deserve
to be protected. Contact our legal team today to discuss your case.
Protect Yourself After a Hit & Run
Retaining an experienced hit and run attorney can be your best option for
building strong defense. One way is to prove that you were not involved,
weren't intoxicated at the time of the accident, or that there were
some outside elements that caused the accident. An attorney can coach
you through and help you explain your situation in the event you may need
to speak with law enforcement. We work hard to ensure that our clients
do not have to live the rest of their lives with permanent criminal records
because of one momentary mistake or misunderstanding. We can help you
determine which course of action may secure the best possible outcome
for your case.
