Hit & Run
Accused of a hit & run? Michael L. Fell will work tirelessly to defend your rights.
Any time you are involved in a car accident, the law requires you to stop. If you don’t, you could be charged with a hit and run. This is true even if the accident was not your fault.
The penalties for a hit & run conviction can be quite harsh, especially if you are accused of a felony hit and run following an accident in which another person was injured or killed. Even a misdemeanor hit and run charge stemming from property damage can expose you to a fine of up to $1,000 and up to 6 months in jail.
Hit & Run Cases are Complicated—Make Sure You Have a Good Attorney
Typically, the most effective defenses for a hit and run case are to argue that you were not actually involved in the accident at all, or you reasonably believed that no one (except possibly yourself) sustained any damage or injury in the accident.
To successfully make either of these arguments, a great deal of detailed research into the evidence in the case is needed. Fortunately, you can rely on the staff of The Law Office of Michael L. Fell to scrutinize every accident photo, witness statement, and other piece of evidence for anything that could help support your defense. In some instances, the case may be resolved with the police and victim without criminal charges ever being filed.
With Attorney Fell on your side, you can rest assured your case will be resolved as quickly and favorably as possible. Time is of the essence. Call Attorney Michael Fell before an investigation is done and charges are filed against you.
