Hit and Run After Accident Involving Serious Injury

A driver who is involved in an accident and fails to stop his vehicle at the scene or return to the scene after stopping his vehicle as close to the scene as possible will be charged with a Class 5 Felony.

Serious bodily injury means an injury that involves a substantial risk of death, a substantial risk of loss or impairment of any body part or organ, or a substantial risk of permanent disfigurement. Serious bodily injury also includes 2nd or 3rd degree burns and breaks and fractures.

The notice, information, and aid requirements of Hit and Run Involving Serious Injury are identical to the requirements of Hit and Run Involving Injury. These include providing the driver’s name, driver’s license upon request, registration information, and the driver’s address. The requirement that the driver must produce his driver’s license applies not only to the person struck, but the driver, occupant, or person attending any vehicle collided with.

A driver must also assist any injured person by carrying them to, or making arrangements to carry them to, a surgeon, physician, or hospital if it is apparent that such medical treatment is necessary or if the injured person requests it.

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 After Accident Involving Serious Injury is a criminal offense which carries a maximum penalty of three (3) years in prison with two (2) years mandatory parole. Additionally, a driver is subject to an automatic driver’s license revocation at the Division of Motor Vehicles.

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"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked.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sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked.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

"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. 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
