Leaving the Scene Charges in Brighton
Brighton OUI Defense Attorney
Leaving the scene of an accident is a felony offense. Car accidents occur unexpectedly and it can be a natural reaction to feel fear and leave. If you are later arrested, your situation is very serious. Leaving the scene of an accident resulting in property damage is a crime. A "hit and run" only looks dishonest to the jury and is one more charge you have to beat.

From the moment I take on a case I am committed to providing my clients with professional OUI defense counsel, and I will do everything legally possible to seek a positive outcome.

Have you been charged with leaving the scene?
In order for the prosecution to convict you of leaving the scene, they must be able to prove that you were aware that there had been property damage, or you knew that an injury had taken place in the collision. If the collision is extremely minor and left little to no property damage, the prosecution may have a difficult time proving that you were aware that it occurred.
