What Does A Hit And Run Charge Mean For You?

In Louisiana, being involved in a hit-and-run can mean serious legal trouble, especially if the incident results in property damage, injury or worse

The law requires drivers involved in accidents to stop, exchange information and call for medical help if needed. If you didn’t do that, you could be facing serious charges. Here’s a breakdown of what you may be up against:

  • Misdemeanor hit-and-run charges involve property damage, with penalties including fines, jail time for up to six months and license suspension.
  • Felony charges apply when someone is injured. They come with harsher fines, longer jail time and extended license suspension.

The severity of the penalties escalates with the gravity of the accident’s outcome. When an accident results in death due to careless driving, you may be facing vehicular manslaughter.

The Importance Of A Customized Defense For Your Hit-And-Run Incident

Each hit-and-run case is unique. The specific facts of your incident – how it happened, what was damaged, who was hurt – can significantly shape the course of your case. A defense tailored to your unique circumstances is absolutely critical.
