Leaving the Scene of an Accident

March 16, 2018

Client involved in auto accident and brakes stopped working. Returned to crash site, but was cited for criminal charge of leaving the scene. Potential conviction would have drastic life effects. Listened to client’s version of events, reviewed corroborating materials, noted error in prosecution’s file, requested dismissal right then from prosecution. Case dismissed. Client more relieved than I have seen in a while. The absolute reason I do what I do.
