Experienced & Aggressive Defense Against Hit & Run Charges You Are Facing

San Diego Hit and Run Attorney

Building a Solid Defense to Brighten Your Future

A hit and run is an offense that involves leaving the scene of an automobile accident. When a driver is involved in an accident of any kind, he or she has the legal obligation to stop as soon as is safely possible to render assistance if necessary and to exchange contact information with the other driver or with the owner of any property damaged in the collision. Failing to stop at the scene is actually a criminal offense which may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony under California law, depending upon the extent of property damage and whether anyone was injured.

If you or someone you know has been accused of a hit and run, you will need a skilled attorney on your side as soon as possible. A legal professional from The Law Offices of Christopher P. Sohovich can defend your rights and help you avoid imprisonment, driver’s license suspension, fines, and the other criminal penalties which may result from a conviction for this offense. The victim or victim’s family may also try to pursue a lawsuit against you in civil court, which may mean that you will face paying compensatory damages to the victim in addition to any criminal penalties you may face. Having a competent San Diego criminal defense lawyer fighting for you means you will have a better chance of avoiding these serious penalties.

Contact The Law Offices of Christopher P. Sohovich now if you need legal help after a hit and run. Call us at (619) 304-8865.

Genuine Support through Tough Times

Attorney Sohovich knows how to help individuals who have been charged with a hit and run. Through his years of experience in criminal defense and as a former prosecuting attorney, he understands how to approach hit and run cases in an effective way.

Our firm has handled countless hit and run cases, including situations where:

  • The driver hit a telephone pole and caused public property damage
  • The driver hit something (a fence, mailbox, etc) on someone else’s private property
  • The driver hit a parked car
  • The driver hit a pedestrian and caused injury or death
  • The driver hit another vehicle on the road and caused both property damage and injury/death

The potential penalties you face depend on the severity of the accident, the cost of the damage, and other details of the incident. We can help you understand your circumstances and how the prosecution is likely to build a case against you. From there, we will explain your options clearly and provide insightful advice so that you can make informed decisions regarding your case.

If you have been involved in a hit and run, contact our firm before you give statements to the police or an insurance company. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your unique case and determine how we can help you.
