Felony Traffic Violations: Hit and Run

Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney

When most people think of traffic violations, they think of speeding tickets, parking tickets, and maybe even more serious violations such as driving with a suspended license or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. One violation that many people do not consider is hit and run. Whenever an individual is involved in an accident that caused injuries or death, the driver must stop as soon as possible at the scene of the accident or nearby. Regardless of who was at fault or who had the right-of-way, if a driver does not stop after being in an accident that involves personal injury, he or she will be charged with hit and run and possibly other criminal offenses as well.

It is especially important that you retain an experienced Chicago criminal defense lawyer if you have been charged with hit and run because one of the possible penalties is license revocation. License revocation is more serious than most people realize because even after the convicted individual is released from jail or finished with community service, he or she will be unable to legally drive anywhere, including to and from work. A Chicago criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Mitch Furman & Associates is available and ready to take on your case and provide you with relentless, aggressive legal representation.

Criminal Charges for Motor Vehicle Accidents Involving Injury or Death

Many hit and run crimes are charged in concurrence with other crimes such as reckless driving, reckless homicide, and driving under the influence (DUI). Whenever you are facing criminal charges in Illinois, you need to consider the repercussions of a conviction and your future. Are you willing to go to jail or have a criminal record because you didn't hire the best attorney? Are you going to allow your life to fall apart because you have been convicted of a felony crime? Do not sacrifice your future. Call our office today to arrange a free case evaluation with one of our experienced hit and run lawyers.
