Los Angeles Hit and Run Attorney
A hit and run accident is the act of causing or being involved in a traffic accident, and then leaving the scene of the accident before identifying oneself. This is a serious crime that is frowned upon by prosecutors and judges. A hit and run accident where only property is damaged is classified as a misdemeanor. Conversely, a hit and run accident that results in personal injury is classified as a felony, which means that the alleged perpetrator will face much harsher sentencing if convicted. If you have been accused of fleeing the scene of an accident, you need experienced legal representation when you go to court.
