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.
