Hit-and-Run/Leaving the Scene of Accident

A charge of Hit-and-Run, also know as Leaving the Scene of an Accident or Failure to Report an Accident, is a serious charge with serious consequences.

In Colorado, there are ten (10) possible different Hit-and-Run charges that can be alleged against not only a driver of an automobile, but in certain circumstances, a passenger can also be charged. The classification of charges ranges from a Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense up to a Class 3 Felony. The driver’s license consequences for a driver range from a suspension to an automatic revocation. A passenger may be charged in certain circumstances under C.R.S. 42-4-1607(1), a Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense, however no points are assessed at the Division of Motor Vehicles (D.M.V.).

Often times a police officer or prosecutor will “stack” multiple Hit-and-Run charges against a defendant arising out of a single accident, with each charge carrying the possibility for a driver’s license suspension or automatic revocation and each charge carrying the possibility of a jail sentence.

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"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked.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sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked.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