DWI Hit & Run in Albuquerque

Leaving the Scene and DWI

If you are involved in an accident, you are obligated by state law to stop your vehicle and render aid. If there is an accident in which another person suffers serious bodily injury and the driver is alleged to have left the scene without rendering aid, calling emergency services, and speaking with law enforcement, the assumption is often that the incident is related to DWI. A person who is arrested shortly after the accident and then tested and is above the legal limit will be facing very serious consequences. Those that are identified and caught later could be assumed to have been DUI, but proving this could be far more difficult.

Hit & Run and DWI Accidents - Defense Lawyer in Albuquerque

The crime of leaving the scene (or hit & run) is a separate charge and carries other penalties beyond the charges for DWI. If there have been injuries or fatality, the situation can be very, very serious for the accused individual. It is imperative that your case is reviewed on an immediate basis, and prior to making a statement, appearing in court, or discussing anything about the case — with anyone. At The Romero Law Firm, P.A., our job is to protect the rights of our clients. Part of the process involves the individual exercising the right to remain silent, and allowing our Albuquerque DUI hit & run lawyer to evaluate the situation and determine the best strategy for your individual case.

A DWI hit-and-run is one of the worst DWI charges. You should expect all penalties to be increased over what they would be for a normal DWI. As the penalties imposed could be extensive, should you be convicted, your case must be carefully managed by a legal professional who knows what can and cannot be done, based upon the evidence that pointed to you as the perpetrator. We are professional criminal lawyers and we know what it takes to help a client avoid conviction. We prepare each case carefully, and we have prevailed in many difficult cases. Call today.
