Hit-and-run accidents are complicated. Law enforcement often assumes drivers who cause hit-and-run accidents were under the influence of drugs or alcohol or had reason to avoid the police.
At Courtney & Molter, S.C., we are a criminal defense law firm committed to protecting clients’ constitutional rights. We know that every situation and every case is unique. We will carefully investigate the facts and the case against you, and work aggressively to protect your future.
If you are a commercial driver accused of hit and run, put our experience to work for you in both your criminal case and in defending your CDL. The attorneys of Courtney & Molter have handled a number challenging cases where commercial drivers were accused of causing serious accidents.
Focused on Protecting Your Future
In addition to our strong legal roots in criminal defense, we also have extensive experience in personal injury. This often gives us a clearer understanding of how many people react to accidents and injuries.
After a hit-and-run accident, for example, the police may simply assume the driver has fled the scene simply because the driver was absent when the police arrived. We examine the whole record to show how our clients experienced the events and what they intended. For example, the actions of some drivers accused of hit and run may actually demonstrate they had no intent to harm anyone:
- Calling 911 for help
- Assisting injured drivers and passengers
- Exchanging insurance information at a later date
We will examine all of the evidence against you and make sure your constitutional rights were not violated. If you were charged with DWI or driving under the influence of drugs after a hit-and-run accident, we can work with chemical and blood experts to determine whether law enforcement had probable cause to pull you over or arrest you.
We may decide to incorporate medical testimony into your defense if it shows the drugs in your system at the time of the accident were prescribed by your doctor and approved for driving purposes. Our goal is always to mount a strong defense and protect your future.
