Being involved in a California Hit and Run, regardless of fault, is an upsetting and frightening event. It is not uncommon for individuals to find themselves in a state of fear and anxiety and often not thinking clearly, leave the scene of an accident. People often worry about getting a DUI, sometimes not wanting to get caught driving on a suspended license, and sometimes Clients don’t want to take responsibility for an accident if they don’t have money or insurance coverage.

The law requires all drivers involved in a Hit and Run accident, regardless of fault or injury, to stop and immediately exchange license and insurance information. Failure to comply with this law can lead to an arrest for misdemeanor (non-injury) or felony (injury) Hit and Run charges being filed against you. In either event, leaving the scene without exchanging license and insurance information is a serious offense. If you are convicted of a Hit and Run offence, it will create a permanent criminal record. If you have made this mistake, you are not alone. Early intervention by an experienced attorney can minimize or even eliminate this offense from tarnishing your otherwise good record.
