Hit and run charges dismissed in the Bronx
Our client was
arrested for allegedly hitting a child and driving off without properly leaving
identifying information or insurance information or waiting for the police.
When our client came to see us, our client was very concerned about the
direction their case was going while it was in the hands of a different
lawyer. Our client
contacted us. After we were hired to take on the case, we sent for, obtained, and reviewed
the many allegations made about our client in the police paperwork, criminal
court complaint, and medical records. Because the alleged victim was a
child, the district attorney was pushing for a harsh penalty and a criminal
record. After we raised a legal issue concerning legal definitions of
reporting an accident in New York, we were able to negotiate a very favorable
outcome. We negotiated a deal to have the charges reduced to only a traffic
infraction and no
jail, no probation, and no criminal record.
