Concerning Hit and Run Charges
Santa Barbara Criminal Defense Lawyer
Many people only think of hit and run as occurring after a pedestrian Vs vehicle accident. Factually, hit and run applies to any collision where a driver does not stop to supply his or her identifying information. The State of California considers this a serious offense. If no personal injury is involved this act is charged as a misdemeanor, however where there are injuries it may be considered a felony. Conviction of hit and run will result in points on your driving record which will most likely impact your insurance rates or your ability to obtain insurance, and may mean the loss of driving privileges.
