Hit and Run
Have you been charged with a hit and run? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
Leaving the scene of a car accident is a serious offense. It doesn’t matter how serious the accident was or even whether or not you are at fault—if there was property damage or injury to another party and you do not stop, you could be charged with a hit and run.
While some hit and run cases involve relatively minor errors like not stopping after someone rear-ends you at a stop sign or leaving the scene of an accident caused by your driving (even if you did not hit anyone yourself), other cases are much more serious. Drivers may deliberately leave the scene after causing serious injuries or death because they do not want to be caught driving under the influence, driving without a license, or breaking some other law. This type of hit and run is a felony.
No matter what type of hit and run accident you are accused of involvement in, you need an experienced hit and run defense lawyer such as The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates on your side.
Possible Defenses for a Hit and Run
After over 15 years of experience in criminal defense, our attorneys understand the legal statues and case law related to hit and run accidents. We will work tirelessly to develop a defense strategy that is tailored to the specifics of your particular case and likely to secure the best possible resolution for you.
Possible defense arguments for hit and run include:
- You were not actually aware that you had caused an accident
- There was no damage to anyone’s property other than your own
- The prosecutor cannot prove that you were the person involved in the accident
As we closely examine the evidence the police have against you, we will use any weaknesses to attempt to convince the prosecutor to drop or reduce your charges. If we determine that going to trial is the best course of action, we will fight for you every step of the way.
