Hit & Run
Providence Hit And Run Lawyer
1. DEFENSE LAWYER REPRESENTING THOSE ACCUSED BY THE POLICE OF HIT AND RUN.
If you have been served with a notice from the Providence Police Hit and Run unit that your car was involved in a hit and run accident, you should call an attorney experienced with hit and run violations right away. RI police and the courts take hit and run charges very seriously because all too often, people or property injured by hit and run drivers are never compensated for their loss.
If you are convicted of leaving the scene of an accident, the penalties can range from a simple fine, to loss of license, or jail time, depending on the severity of the accident and whether there was property or personal injury involved. Your car insurance may also be negatively impacted.
RI Law requires drivers who knowingly cause an accident to stay at the scene and to report the accident to law enforcement. If you were involved in an accident and left the scene without reporting the accident, you should call an attorney right away or when you first learn that you are accused of leaving the scene of an accident, to discuss the details of your specific case and to determine what action you should take.
