Newport Beach Police pursue hit and run cases usually by first trying to contact the errant driver by telephone or if that fails by letter. Failing to respond to the police can cause a warrant to go out for your arrest. You should never contact the police as any statement by you can be treated like an admission.
Hit and Run occurs when someone has an accident and hits another car or any object and then fails to exchange identifying information or insurance information with the owner of the property. This is normally charged under Vehicle Code Section 20002(a).
Newport Beach Hit and Run Lawyer Will Bruzzo has managed to get many hit and run cases dismissed. Often times Mr. Bruzzo manages to get the case dismissed by arranging compensation for the victim with the permission of the Judge and the District Attorney. This is called a civil compromise under penal code sections 1377-1378.
Newport Beach Hit and Run Lawyer Will Bruzzo can arrange a civil compromise with the investigating Police Officer or the Judge. It is always better to try and resolve the matter as early as possible so if the police officer is amenable to a civil compromise and the victim is also amenable that can stop the matter from proceeding to the District Attorney’s office and this will keep the client’s record clean.
