There are many different types of Hit and Run cases. Some involve injury, and some involve damage to property. Others involve just the driver of a vehicle, and some involve multiple passengers. Accordingly, there are many different ways to help mitigate a Hit and Run case, but one thing remains certain: the more immediately you take steps to mitigate your case, the higher probability you will have of it being reduced or dismissed.
The reason it is important to act immediately with a Hit and Run case is because certain actions can be taken prior to the Prosecutor’s even filing charges against you. If this can be completed successfully, then there is a chance that Prosecutor’s will not feel the need to file charges at all. Your case would then be dismissed.
A Los Angeles Hit and Run lawyer would contact the person or persons, or property to which damage or injury was incurred. If damages are paid for, or injuries are paid for, to the satisfaction of the injured party, then Prosecutor’s may be more inclined to drop charges since amends have been made and the person being charged has been proactive.
