Let Us Help You Defend Your Driving Privileges

Many states require people to stop after they’ve been involved in a collision. Drivers who hit vehicles, other objects, and people are obligated to stop at the scene immediately or as close as possible and leave their contact information with all other parties involved. If anyone is injured at the scene, the driver is also responsible for lending assistance, which could include calling 911 or pulling someone out of a burning car.

If you’re accused of a hit & run, talk to our skilled Milwaukee traffic violations attorney about your case as soon as possible. Depending on how serious the results of your accident are, you could be facing a lengthy prison sentence, high fines, and possibly civil lawsuits.

The punishments for a hit and run will depend on how severe the accident was and how much damage was caused. Hitting a parked car will incur slightly less serious penalties than hitting and killing a pedestrian. If the crash didn’t cause an injury, you would likely be charged with a misdemeanor and face fines and up to 6 months in jail. An accident resulting in a slight injury can lead to up to 9 months in jail and a fine of up to $10,000. If a person sustained great bodily harm, you could be charged with a class E felony, which can get you up to 15 years in prison. Killing someone can result in up to 25 years in prison. Serious bodily injury or death could result in assault & battery or manslaughter charges.
