There are things that can be done to mitigate the circumstances. If you have injured someone in a hit and run accident, there are things that can be done to improve your chances to succssfully resolve the problem.
I hit a parked car and nobody was in the car. Is there any hope?
Yes. Property damage only cases often result in misdemeanor charges that are punishable up to six months in the Los Angeles County Jail. These are considered less serious than felony charges that can result in incarceration for many years in a state prison. An experienced criminal defense lawyers may be able to keep you out of jail. In some instances, we can resolve the case without any charges being filed.
The Police Department want me to go to the police station and talk to them. Should I go there without a lawyer?
No. We recommend that you immediately hire a lawyer and do not go to the police station without a lawyer. Anything you say can and will be used against you to prosecute you for a hit and run criminal charge pursuant to vehicle code section 20002.
Can you help get the hit and run case dropped?
Depending on what stage the case is at, we are often able to do different things. For example, we have successfully resolved many hit and run cases by way of a civil compromise. In other instances, we have helped resolve cases directly with the police agencies.
As an example of our experience in handling hit and run cases, we have helped prevent charges from being filed for cases involving the California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department, Baldwin Park Police Department, and the San Gabriel Police Department to name a few.
In other cases, we have successfully resolved cases in court and helped obtain dismissals and worked out plea agreements where a client could earn a dismissal.
