San Diego Hit & Run Attorney

A Safe Space to Talk about Your Situation

A hit and run is an offense that involves leaving the scene of an automobile accident. When a driver is involved in an accident of any kind, he or she has the legal obligation to stop as soon as is safely possible to render assistance if necessary and to exchange contact information with the other driver or with the owner of any property damaged in the collision. Failing to stop at the scene is a criminal offense which may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony under California law, depending upon the extent of property damage and whether anyone was injured.

At Rodriguez Law Firm, we understand that there are many reasons that may have caused you to leave the scene of an accident. Our firm practices both immigration and criminal defense law. As such, we frequently receive visits from undocumented aliens who fled the scene out of fear of being deported. Right now, it’s important that you understand your rights so you can start building a defense strategy. This is where our San Diego hit and run lawyer can help.

Contact Rodriguez Law Firm now if you need legal help after a hit and run. Call us at (619) 332-1703 to request a free consultation.

Dedicated Support through a Difficult Time

Attorney Rodriguez knows how to help individuals who have been charged with a hit and run. Through his years of experience in criminal defense and as a former police officer, he understands how to build an effective defense strategy.

Our firm has handled countless hit and run cases, including situations where:

  • The driver hit a telephone pole and caused public property damage
  • The driver hit a fence, mailbox, etc. on someone else’s private property
  • The driver hit a parked car
  • The driver hit a pedestrian and caused injury or death
  • The driver hit another vehicle on the road and caused property damage or injury

The potential penalties you face depend on the severity of the accident, the cost of the damage, and other details of the incident. We can help you understand your circumstances and how the prosecution is likely to build a case against you. From there, we can explain your options and discuss the best strategy moving forward.

You Are Not in This Alone

If you have been involved in a hit and run, contact our San Diego criminal defense lawyer before you give statements to the police or an insurance company. We offer free initial consultations where you can tell us about your circumstances and learn how our team can help.
