Understanding Your Hit & Run Charges
You should never try to face your charges on your own, especially if someone was injured in the accident. You need a trusted Fairfax criminal defense attorney on your side. We are dedicated to navigating your case and helping you avoid the consequences of a hit and run charge, including fines, insurance rates, license suspension, and possible jail time. In some cases, you could face additional charges of negligent driving, DUI, or reckless driving.
The two main types of hit and run charges include:
- Hit and run attended: Hitting an attended or occupied car and leaving the scene without giving the other driver your information.
- Hit and run unattended: Hitting an unattended or parked car and leaving the scene before you have alerted an owner or identified an owner.
