Were You Charged With Leaving an Accident Scene?
Leaving the scene of an accident is a serious offense, even if the accident was a minor bump in a parking lot that left no visible damage. A conviction will result in the revocation of your driver’s license for at least six months. If the accident resulted in personal injury, you could be subject to incarceration.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt, Esq. in East Brunswick and Freehold, we provide aggressive defense against charges of leaving the scene of an accident in Middlesex and Monmouth counties. Attorney Jeffrey Goldblatt provides a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions.
Defenses for Leaving the Scene of an Accident
There are many reasons why a person may leave the scene of an accident. In some cases, the person involved in the accident may not even be aware that the accident resulted in vehicle damage or personal injury. However, New Jersey law is clear: even if you bump into an unattended vehicle, you are supposed to leave a note for the other driver or call the police.
Attorney Jeffrey Goldblatt will look at the circumstances of your accident and suggest a defense strategy to minimize the consequences of the charge on your life and driver’s license. He will negotiate with the municipal prosecutor to attempt to reduce the impact of this serious violation.
