Hit and Run cases are usually about hearing both sides of the story. Someone may hit another vehicle and be looking for a place to park. That is when someone looks through the window and assumes the person is trying to flee the scene.
I recently finished a hit and run case. These cases need to be thoroughly examined and defended.
As a former senior prosecutor one of the charges that have an inconsistency of whether charges are pursued it hit and run. For example, my father in law (who is 70 years plus) hit a mirror and did not realize it for some time. When he came home he realized the accident. It took a while for him to call the police. The police did not think anything of it. Conversely, I recently had a client who hit a car and exited the freeway waiting for the other party. The other party immiedately pulled over and did not see my client pull off the exit so they called police. The prosecution aggressively pursued this case until a judge set up a dismissal on the day of trial. San Diego Hit and Run cases need to be throughly examined. Because someone hit a car doesnt mean they did anything wrong. It is the running that is usually the issue.
