Leaving the Scene of an Accident in Reno

DUI Attorney in Reno

Leaving the scene of an accident is not necessarily an alcohol-related event. Very good people, faced with the unexpected, sometimes panic and do things which they would not do if they stopped to think about their actions beforehand. A motorist who fees the scene of an accident because he falsely believes that his 2 glasses of wine at dinner render him intoxicated needs the capable and energetic assistance of a well experienced DUI defense lawyer. The failure to stay at an accident scene to render assistance carries severe penalties, especially if injuries have occurred. Defending against the prosecution machine is not a job for either the faint of heart or the inexperienced.

Leaving the scene of an accident is also known as hit-and-run. Many times, those who leave the scene of the crime do so because of panic or some other reason, like being under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident. The penalties for leaving the scene of an accident are especially harsh if there are injuries or even casualties. If you or someone you know has left the scene of an accident and may be charged, speak with a Reno DUI attorney as soon as possible to begin working on your defense.

Not surprisingly, leaving the scene of an accident is not necessary an alcohol or drug related event. Each and every day, fine citizens suddenly find themselves in the aftermath of a car accident they caused. Panic quickly sets in, especially if the driver has had some alcohol but does not understand that the alcohol in his system is insufficient to warrant a DUI charge.

Whether you had one glass of wine at dinner and flee the scene of an accident you caused in fear of a potential DUI charge or another reason, or you truly were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and left the scene of the accident to avoid imminent charges, I can help provide the capable and energetic representation you will need when facing a charge of leaving the scene, a felony offense.
