Trust in the Law Offices of Tim Powers
Hit and run – typically called leaving the scene of an accident – is a serious legal situation for an individual to face. If the only damage from the collision was to property, you will be facing a misdemeanor charge. Even if the accident was not your fault, there is a legal responsibility to stop and provide your contact information and render help if needed. If injuries or a death resulted from the accident, a felony charge could result.
In many cases involving an accident with injury, investigators may assume that the driver left the scene because he or she was impaired by alcohol or drugs. As part of their investigation they will look into this possibility which could mean an additional charge. Regardless of the severity of the accident you should consult with our Denton County criminal defense lawyers at once.

Aggressive Representation When You Need it Most
Our firm understands that there may be a valid reason for someone not stopping at the scene of an accident. For example, the driver may be unaware that there was a collision. Speaking with an investigator without the advice of an experienced defense attorney is never advised and could create problems in defending your case. The purpose of a law enforcement investigation is to find evidence of guilt and provide it to a prosecutor. As former prosecutors, we fully understand how the prosecution builds its case. After a thorough investigation of the circumstances of your accident, our firm will work with you to design a strong defense strategy.
