Can a Greensboro traffic lawyer help you with your hit and run? Yes we can.
If you are charged with a Greensboro hit and run accident, contact a Greensboro traffic ticket lawyer immediately. Hit and Run does not mandate fault, only that everyone should stop or be charged. Therefore, it is often an unjust criminal charge held against you.
The Hit & Run statute is also overly complex, and has numerous different charges hidden within, based on the facts of your situation.
The different types of Hit and Run include:
N.C.G.S. 20-166(a) – Failure to stop or remain at scene when serious personal injury or death occurs – Class F Felony
N.C.G.S. 20-166(a1) – Failure to stop or remain at scene when personal injury – Class H Felony
N.C.G.S. 20-166(b) – Failure to give information or assistance when personal injury or death occurs – Class 1 Misdemeanor
N.C.G.S. 20-166(c) – Failure to stop when injury or death not apparent or only property damage occurs – Class 1 Misdemeanor
N.C.G.S. 20-166(c1) – Failure to give information when injury or death not apparent or only property damage occurs – Class 1 Misdemeanor
N.C.G.S. 20-166.1 – Failure to notify the authorities – Class 2 Misdemeanor
