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 penalties.

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.
