DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident in Reno

Defense for Hit and Run in Reno NV

Alcohol and Car Keys - Leaving the Scene of an Accident

While leaving the scene of an accident is not necessarily an alcohol-related event, if a driver attempts to avoid being arrested for DUI after an accident they could be facing serious penalties. The failure to stay at an accident scene to render assistance may result in even harsher penalties if injuries have occurred.

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 flees 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. Defending against the prosecution machine is not a job for either the faint of heart or the inexperienced.

Consequences of Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Hit & Run Penalties:

  • 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.
  • If you or someone you know has left the scene of an accident and may be charged, speak with a Reno hit and run 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.
