Leaving the Scene of an Accident Lawyer
New York law requires drivers involved in an accident causing property damage or injury to stay at the accident scene and provide insurance information and identification. Despite this law, some people, either due to fear or uncertainty, leave the scene of an accident without providing this information. If you have been charged with leaving the scene of an accident and/or hit-and-run, you face serious criminal charges that can negatively impact your life in many ways. Depending on the severity of the accident, you could face misdemeanor or felony charges.
