Charges For DUI Hit-and-Run In Annapolis

Leaving The Scene Of A Drunk Driving Accident

The authorities will do their best to paint you in a bad light — fleeing out of cowardice or cold-hearted indifference after causing an accident or simply driving off in a drunken stupor. Police may be able to track the vehicle, but it is another matter to prove that you were intoxicated or even driving.

A hit-and-run is a serious criminal offense, and the penalties are much greater if the prosecution can establish that you were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The law firm of Cochran & Chhabra, LLC provides a formidable defense for both the DUI/DWI aspect and the charge of leaving the scene of an alleged DUI accident.

Experienced Annapolis DUI Hit-And-Run Attorneys

An allegation of hit-and-run is just as serious as a DUI, especially if the accident resulted in bodily injury. The law requires drivers involved in a crash to stop and render aid, summon help and remain at the site of the crash. A conviction for leaving the scene of an accident is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The potential penalties are even greater in the case of vehicular manslaughter (fatal accident).

Criminal defense lawyers Gill Cochran and Mandeep Chhabra will challenge the hit-and-run allegation and any allegation of impaired driving. Law enforcement must establish that you were at the wheel, rather than a family member or some other person. They also must establish that you were drinking prior to the accident or drinking while driving. We will make the prosecution prove every element and we will advocate for you at every stage, from motions and hearings to negotiations or trial.
