Burbank Hit & Run Defense Attorney
If you have been involved in a hit and run incident in the city of Burbank, representation can be critical. The Burbank Police Department Traffic Division expends extraordinary resources investigating accident cases, and will likely contact you, quickly, for a statement about the incident.
While it may seem like a good idea to "make things right," and speak directly to the case detective, you may be building a criminal case against yourself. Thus, you should not speak to police without attorney representation.

More Information about Hit and Run Violations
A hit and run investigation begins when someone involved in a traffic accident fails to exchange information prior to leaving the scene. Even if your vehicle did not make actual contact with another vehicle, a hit and run charge may still be filed, if you are considered "involved."
Hit and run cases can be filed as misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on whether another person was injured. Penalties for conviction may include the following terms and conditions:
- $1000s in fine
- Community service
- Driver’s license suspension
- 2-3 Points on DMV Record
- Criminal Conviction
