Hit and Run After Accident Involving Injury

The duties required of a driver involved in an accident with injuries are numerous.

If a driver is involved in an accident where another person is injured, she has a duty to immediately stop her vehicle at the scene, or as close to the scene as possible. If the driver stops as close to the scene as possible, rather than directly at the scene, she has a duty to return to the scene and remain there.

The driver further has a duty to give her name, address, and registration information, including presenting her driver’s license to the person struck, the driver, occupant, or person attending any vehicle collided with.

Additionally, a driver is required “where practical” to give assistance to an injured party, including carrying a person to a physician, surgeon, or hospital, or making arrangements to carry a person to a physician, surgeon, or hospital for medical or surgical treatment when it appears that the treatment is necessary or requested by the injured party.

A driver is also required to immediately notify the police of the accident. Failure to notify the police of the accident is a separate hit and run charge.

Hit and Run/Leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries is a Class 1 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense which carries a maximum one (1) year jail sentence and an “automatic revocation” of a driver’s license.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda

"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve

Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
