Many of our clients come to us prior to having been arrested and are concerns as to how they can avoid charges, or at least mitigate the consequences. There are definitely ways to do so, but it has to be handled with expertise and care .
The very first step you can take to help ensure that any actions you take are helpful to you and your case is to hire a Los Angeles Hit and Run lawyer as soon as possible. Not only will the attorney provide you with the knowledgeable and experienced guidance that you need, but they will immediately start taking steps to work on your case and gather information.
If you think that you may be charged with a Los Angeles Hit and Run, you have no information. If you believe you caused injury to someone or caused damage to property and fled the scene, it is likely that you have no information as to what may have happened thereafter. You have no information as to whether a person was injured, whether there was damage, what the person’s name was, whether they had insurance, etc. That is where the attorney is an asset to your case.
