Hit & Run Lawyer in Chicago
Arrested for a Hit & Run? Get a Defense Lawyer Now!
A charge of hit & run is a very serious felony in cases of injury.
A case in which another person was injured is extremely dangerous for
the accused, such as:
- Another driver
- A pedestrian
The penalties imposed can be extensive, including years in state prison,
and once released, facing life as a convicted felon – a difficult
situation. You have every right to be worried and concerned about your
future. If you have been arrested for hit & run, you can assume that
the prosecutor feels that there is sufficient evidence to convict you.

Under Investigation for Hit & Run
If you have not yet been charged, but you are being questioned about an
injury accident and hit & run, you must exercise your right to remain
silent. Do not answer any questions. Ask for an attorney and call my office.
You could damage your own case while suffering from the duress of interrogation
techniques. The police can lie to you to get you to admit to a crime –
this is legal. You could be told almost anything. The idea is that if
you are convinced that there is sufficient evidence against you, you will
confess. This is a dangerous situation to be in, and it is imperative
that you have the protection of a highly skilled attorney at every step
of the process.
You may be innocent and falsely accused, be believed to have been
driving DUI, but unfortunately, this is not enough to expect that you will be found
not guilty. It takes a Chicago criminal attorney at your side that is
ready to fight, and fight hard.
If you are to appear in court for an arraignment for hit & run, don't
go to court without an attorney. Issues such as your bail may be arranged
at the hearing, and you could be stuck behind bars, unable to return to
your home or family, if this issue is not managed carefully and professionally.
