By De Castroverde Law Group  Jun. 21, 2010 12:46p

When in such a congested and populated city as Las Vegas, the chances of an auto accident are astronomically higher by nature of the location. Auto accidents are serious cases that deserve to be treated as such. The injuries and emotional, physical and financial trauma that can stem from such a situation can be long-lasting and life-altering. Which is why hit and run cases are taken even more gravely. Fleeing the scene of an accident, even if completely innocent is a serious criminal offense.

After an accident has occurred, it is the responsibility of all parties involved to stop and exchange information. This information includes driver's name, contact information and license number. By purposely avoiding this necessary exchange, you can be convicted of a hit and run offense, which depending completely on the amount of property damage incurred by the accident, can be tried as a misdemeanor or felony. By contacting a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible, you are giving yourself the best possible advantage towards your fighting for your future.
