What is Considered a Hit and Run?

An accident is considered a “hit and run” when the driver leaves the scene of an accident after causing injury or hits an unoccupied vehicle without leaving contact information.

In the state of Texas, a driver is required to stop for the following:

  • Property Damage
  • Bodily Injury
  • Death

Upon stopping, the driver must provide the property owner or the other drivers involved with his or her contact information, driver’s license information and insurance information. A willful and intentional failure to stop and provide this information may result in serious criminal consequences.

Defense for Texas Hit and Run Charges

If you have been accused of leaving the scene of an accident, you have the right to legal counsel. A Houston hit & run attorney from Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C. can meet with you during a free initial consultation to go over your legal rights and discuss your options with you.

In defending a client facing hit and run charges, a hit & run lawyer in Texas should thoroughly investigate every aspect of the charges in order to determine how to build the most effective defense strategy. Often, the intent of the defendant will play a major role in the case.

For example, a driver may not have known that he or she was involved in an accident. A driver may have sustained a head injury and therefore was not thinking clearly when he or she left the scene. Whatever the particular circumstances, a defendant will need an attorney to represent his or her side of the story in court.
