Understanding Your Hit & Run Charge

You should never try to face any charge on your own, especially if someone was injured in the accident. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side that you can trust, who is dedicated to navigating your case and helping you avoid the consequences of a hit and run charge, including fines, insurance rate increase, license suspension, and possible jail sentence. In some cases, you could face additional charges such as: traffic offense, DUI, DWI or Reckless Driving.

The two main types of hit and run charges include:
  • Hit and run attended: Hitting an attended or occupied car and leaving the scene without giving the other driver your information.
  • Hit and run unattended: Hitting an unattended or parked car and leaving the scene before you have alerted an owner or identified an owner.
