Hit & Run

Long Beach Hit & Run Attorney

Hit & Run Cases

Anyone involved in a hit and run accident involving injuries, death or the destruction of property is required to immediately stop their vehicle. This includes accidents involving another moving or parked vehicle, pedestrians and any kind of damaged property. You must also present your driver's license, vehicle registration and insurance information to the other driver or property owner on request. Even if you stopped your vehicle after the accident, failing to provide this data is still considered hit and run. If you are unable to find the property owner, you are expected to leave a note at the scene with your contact information, as well as file a police report.

Contact a Long Beach criminal defense lawyer at once if you have left the scene of an accident. You can call our office at (562) 375-4834 or send us a message online.
