Arrested For a Hit & Run? Let Our Certified Criminal Law Specialist Represent You



Every day countless vehicle accidents occur on our busy city thoroughfares. By law, drivers are required to carry insurance on their vehicles and if they do not do so, can be subject to punishment. If you are an uninsured motorist who made the poor decision of fleeing the scene of an accident because of the fears you faced, you could be subject to hit and run charges and the severe punishments that come with a conviction. There are no exceptions to California hit and run law - regardless of whether your crash was a minor incident on parked vehicle or a major accident that harmed another's life.

If you have caused damage to another person's vehicle, property or body in an accident and you leave the scene, you could be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the seriousness of the accident. People make foolish and ill-advised decisions when they panic, so it is always best to remain calm and follow proper procedure. Always stop after an accident and exchange documentation and information with the other driver and call the proper authorities. The absence of the other driver does not excuse you to leave without taking action - you still must leave a note with facts surrounding your accident along with your personal information. You must also contact the local police or highway patrol. The law also states that if another person is injured in your accident, you must provide reasonable assistance to the injured victim.


Regardless of the circumstances surrounding an accident, you should never leave the scene without taking proper action.
