Leaving the Scene

Leaving the Scene

Are You Facing Charges for Leaving the Scene?

We have successfully beat such charges at trial. When an individual is involved in an accident and leaves the scene, this is also known as hit and run, which will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted in our state. The penalties for leaving the scene of an accident will be enhanced, especially if injuries or fatalities were involved, for anyone who is convicted and can include:

  • Incarceration
  • Probation
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Severe fines
  • Charges and conviction on your legal record, which can make it difficult in the future to take advantage of employment, leasing or any other opportunities that depend on the results of a background check.

If you or someone you know is facing charges for leaving the scene, it is imperative that you quickly obtain the legal counsel and guidance of an exceptionally qualified Kansas DUI attorney that has a proven ability to successfully handle these types of cases. You will also fare far better by exercising your right to remain silent until you have secured and consulted your representation, as anything you say can and likely will be used against you in the prosecution's case.
