We Determine What Really Happened
One of the hallmarks of out thorough defense representation is the use of investigators, many of whom are former police officers. In many cases, the quick action of an investigator can lead to an acquittal. Contact us immediately if you were charged with leaving the scene of an accident so we can start the investigation before evidence disappears and people forget what happened.
We can defend you from any charges related to car accidents. The penalties you may face if convicted include:
•    An accident causing only property damage is a violation. The driver at fault will receive three points on his or her license and a fine up to $250, up to 15 days in jail, or both
•    If someone other than the driver is injured, it is a class B misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $250-$500 and other possible penalties.
•    If there is a serious injury, it is a class D felony punishable by a fine of $2,000-$5,000, in addition to other penalties, which may include a prison sentence.
