Hit and Run Defense Attorney in Ventura

Arrested for Leaving an Accident?

Leaving the scene of the crime after causing an accident in California is illegal. This crime, also referred to as a hit and run, is committed when the at fault driver flees to avoid taking responsibility. While we understand it is frightening and overwhelming to cause a car accident, the law requires that you stay at the scene, exchange information with the other drivers, and seek medical attention for those who were injured.

If you are being charged for hit and run in Ventura County, call Wilfert Law P.C. at (805) 324-6777 to receive experienced counsel and help you devise the best plan of action for your case.

When Is Hit and Run a Felony?

The severity of a hit and run charge in California depends on the damages and injuries that result. You may be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the specifics of the accident:

  • Misdemeanor Hit and Run: If a driver only caused property damage, they would likely face a misdemeanor charge. The person who is at fault will then face a maximum six months of jail time and/or must pay a fine of up to $1,000. They may also face three years of probation, restitution charges, and two points on their driving record.
  • Felony Hit and Run: If a driver caused injury or death in a hit and run accident, a felony charge is made against the liable party. Conviction for felony hit and run is punishable by incarceration in state prison for a maximum of 4 years and fines up to $10,000.

No matter what type of hit and run charges you face, it is extremely important to have superior legal advocacy on your side. If you enlist the representation of our lawyers, we can thoroughly evaluate your hit and run case and guide you towards an outcome that is in your best interest.
