Hit and run is a traffic offense that could result in a felony conviction, especially if it is associated with reckless driving or drunk driving (or DUI of drugs). The penalties for this traffic offense are very severe-especially if it involves the death or serious injury of another person. If you or someone you care about has been charged for hit and run, you need a South Florida criminal defense lawyer today.
It is possible that you could be facing life in prison if law enforcement or the criminal courts have associated you with a car accident involving manslaughter. Don't leave yourself open to the harsh penalties associated with this crime; consult with a hit and run defense attorney at The Law Offices of Eric M. Matheny, P.A. to see what may be done for your case!
The term "hit and run" encompasses any act where the driver of a car involved in a vehicle accident leaves the scene without exchanging required information with the other driver or authorities. Florida law also stipulates that there should be reasonable attempts to render aid when involved in a car crash and there is an ability to do so.
To leave the scene of an accident where there is property damage or injury can result in jail or prison time and substantial fines if a conviction is obtained. A South Florida hit and run attorney may be able to represent you in your case and help you avoid these severe penalties.
