Hit and Run Charges Scott Spindel Provides the Knowledge & Experience Your Case Requires

Hit and Run Attorney in Los Angeles

Talk to Our Skilled Los Angeles Criminal Lawyer!

Car accidents happen daily. They’re so common, in fact, that it is estimated most drivers will file a car accident claim once every 17 years or so. However, their prevalence doesn’t make them any less jarring or terrifying. If people get into accidents, they might panic flee the scene, especially if they accidentally hit a pedestrian. California has laws preventing this from happening and penalizing those who fit the following scenarios:

  • Those failing to stop at the scene of a collision
  • Those failing to provide identification
  • Those failing to offer assistance to any injured person as a result of the accident

If you’re facing hit and run charges, you should call our Los Angeles criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Penalties for committing a hit and run can be severe and could lead to jail sentences and high fines. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner a defense can be mounted in your favor.

Penalties for Hit and Run in Los Angeles

California law can be severe when it comes to hit and run accidents, particularly if someone was harmed or killed in the collision. In the event you caused an injury, you might be charged with a misdemeanor or felony; what determines the charge is the severity of the damage. A misdemeanor might lead to one or both of the following punishments:

  • Imprisonment in jail for up to 1 year
  • A fine ranging from $1,000 to $10,000

A felony, on the other hand, might lead to one or both of the following:

  • Up to 3 years in jail
  • A fine ranging from $1,000 to $10,000

If the hit and run causes serious bodily injury or death, the punishments will be even more severe. The punishment for leaving the scene of a crime after committing vehicular manslaughter can lead to an additional, consecutive term of 5 years in prison.
