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.
