Hit & Run Charges

Hit & Run Defense Attorney In Ventura

Arrested for Leaving an Accident?

Leaving the scene of the crime after causing an accident in California is illegal. Also referred to as a hit and run, this crime is committed when the driver who is at fault flees in an attempt to avoid taking responsibility. Although 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 at fault in an accident and are being charged for hit and run in Ventura County, Wilfert Law, P.C. can provide you with experienced counsel and help you devise the best plan of action for your case.

Misdemeanor & Felony Hit & Run Charges

The severity of a hit and run charge in California depends on the damages and injuries that result.

  • Misdemeanor Hit & Run: This offense is charged when property damage is the end result of a hit and run accident. Under California VC 20001, the person who is at fault will then face six months or less of jail time and/or have to pay a fine of $1,000.
  • Felony Hit & Run: When personal injury or death is the end-result of 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.
