Shedding Light On What Matters
There are many ways to defend accusations of a hit-and-run. Often, these are a matter of mistaken identity. Witness testimonies may be proven false or embellished. Or, you may have been responding to an emergency and on your way to a hospital when the incident took place. Whatever the situation, the details matter, and an experienced attorney can shed light on the ones that can change the course of your case.
If the hit-and-run accident results in injuries, North Carolina law charges the offense as a felony. A conviction for a felony hit-and-run may mean several months – if not years – in jail. Regardless of the level of offense, seeking legal counsel as soon as possible is in your best interest.
