In our experience, many Bellevue Hit and Run cases are either a misunderstanding or simply a momentary lapse of judgement.
Regardless of the circumstances involved in your Hit and Run case, our Bellevue criminal driving attorneys will fight to protect your legal rights.
There are a variety of reasons why someone may not properly stop after being involved in a traffic accident. Whether it was because you were afraid or you simply didn’t realize you were actually hit something, you now find yourself in this unenviable position of having to defend yourself – but you don’t have to do it alone. Contact one of our experienced attorneys today to discuss your case and start moving forward.
There are two different types of Hit and Run – Attended and Unattended. The difference between the two is whether there was another person involved. For example, if you struck a parked car or a fence and then left, you would be charged with hit & run unattended. If you struck a car with a person in it then you would be charged with hit & run attended.
Hit & Run attended is the more serious of the two with a maximum penalty of 354 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. For most people though, the biggest concern is that it also comes with a 1 year license suspension. On the other hand, Hit & Run unattended has a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and $1,000 fine but does not come with any license suspension.
If you find yourself facing either of these two criminal charges, contact our offices today for a free consultation.
