Houston Hit and Run Defense Attorney

Hit and Run Charges Lawyer in the City of Houston Defends Clients Rights in Harris County, Fort Bend County, Montgomery County, and Throughout Texas

Hit and run is a slang term for Failure to Give Information or Failure to Stop and Render Aid. Under the Texas Transportation Code, this could be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.  Generally, people understand that if a person runs from the scene of an accident, a crime has been committed. However, whether it is a felony or misdemeanor depends on whether anyone was injured in the accident.  Even if the accident was not your fault, a hit-and-run is illegal. There is a legal responsibility to stop and provide your contact information or render help if needed. If injuries or death resulted from the accident, a felony charge could result. Contact a skilled Houston hit and run defense attorney if you’re facing these charges.

Facing Charges in Houston?

The criminal defense lawyers in our firm understand that there may be a valid reason for someone not stopping at the scene of an accident. For example, the driver may be unaware that there was a collision or is concerned about his own safety. Talking to an investigator without the advice of an experienced defense attorney is never advised and could create problems in defending your case. The purpose of a law enforcement investigation is to find evidence of guilt and provide it to a prosecutor. Our founding attorney served as a former prosecutor and fully understands how the prosecution builds its case. After a thorough investigation of the circumstances of your accident, our firm will work with you to design a strong criminal defense strategy.

Protecting your legal rights and your criminal record is our highest priority. Call Chernoff Law for a free consultation with a skilled and experienced Houston hit and run defense attorney.
