Hit & Run Lawyer in Long Beach, CA

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Hit and run is a crime that involves leaving the scene of an accident without rendering aid to others or exchanging information with the other parties involved. By law, any driver is required to remain at the scene of an auto accident that causes any extent of property damage or injury to others. In addition to remaining at the scene, the driver is required to exchange driver and insurance information with other parties involved.

Drivers are also required to render medical aid as is reasonably possible (calling for an ambulance may suffice). When a person willfully and intentionally leaves the scene of an accident, even one he or she was not responsible for causing, he or she may be in danger of facing hit and run charges.

It is important to talk to a defense lawyer if you or someone you know has been accused of hit and run. In California, this is a felony offense if someone was injured. You will need immediate legal counsel if you are to have the best opportunity of avoiding a conviction and serious penalties including imprisonment in state prison.

Hit & Run Legal Defense

There are different defenses that your attorney may employ in challenging your hit and run charges in the Long Beach area. Though this will vary depending on your unique case, your attorney may work to prove that you were actually not driving the vehicle involved in the collision, that you did not willfully leave the scene, or that the other party was actually not injured. However, it will require sufficient resources to fully investigate the case, as well as the legal knowledge to understand exactly how to apply evidence and information obtained in your favor.

If you are arrested for a hit and run accident, you need to immediately retain legal counsel. The legal team of West Coast Defense is led by an experienced criminal defense attorney who has a proven track record of gaining favorable results for their clients.
