You can get into a lot of trouble and not even know it.

In Colorado, if you have been involved in a car accident, you are required to stop, provide information, and aid. In accidents where a serious injury or death occurred you could be charged with a felony for leaving the scene, also known as a Hit & Run. Many clients come to our Denver or Colorado Springs law office for counsel when a hit-and-run accident is reported to the police — usually by a passerby or nearby resident who captured the car’s license plate number. At Austin, Katzman, & Thom, P.C., we understand the severity of these charges even though you may have not been aware it was a crime to leave the scene at the time. We are here to help you. Our goal is to help you keep your driver’s license and move for reduced or dismissed charges in your hit-and-run accident case.

Charged With Fleeing the Scene of an Accident?

You Could Lose Your License By leaving the scene of an accident, you may be charged with failure to report an accident, which is a 12-point violation. If you are convicted, you will face a point suspension of your driver’s license. For many clients, their driver’s license is their lifeline to work and school. The attorneys at the Liberty Law Center aggressively defend clients against hit-and-run accident charges, driving without insurance and other traffic violations.
