I've been handling hit and run cases in the San Fernando Valley now for the past 27 years. California Vehicle Code 20001 defines felony hit and run charges and Vehicle Code 20002 defines a misdemeanor.
Obviously, if you're involved in a hit and run accident, whether you hit and drove away, whether you hit and left your car at the scene, you're going to need an attorney.
You can't just let this go and bury your head in the sand. I've been handling hit and run cases with unbelievable results. I can't tell you how many clients have come to me with warrants for hit and run cases in the San Fernando Valley.
They're just sitting there hoping the police don't arrest them. Hoping they don't get pulled over, when we can take care of the warrants pretty quickly and pretty easily.
Hit and Run Warrants in California
Especially now, in the age of the Coronavirus, hit and run accidents, as long as no one was seriously injured, are fairly easy to deal with.
We can get the warrant out of the system fairly quickly and, obviously, we can put you in a position where you can move on with your life. And that's the crucial thing.
If there's been a very serious injury in a hit and run accident, that's even more reason to hire an attorney. Let somebody like me, Ron Hedding, who's been doing this for a long time, start to plan exactly how we're going to handle your case.
Start to put the moves in place so you can move forward with your life. Don't sit in limbo. Don't sit there with a hit and run case when my courthouse that I'm in all the time, is five minutes from my office.
I can get in there — San Fernando, Van Nuys — I can get your case taken care of. We can find out if:
- anybody was injured;
- if there was money owed, and
- we can find out what it's going to take to get you in the best possible position.
Don't sit around and do nothing if you're being investigated or charged with a hit and run accident. The more time that goes by, the worse position you put yourself in. You don't want to put yourself in a bad position. You want to be able to move on with your life.
Seeking Best Possible Outcome on Hit and Run Charges
We have to look to see if you have insurance. We have to look to see if anybody was seriously injured. These are all things I can do even before you turn yourself in, before you take care of your case.
You're going to give me your insurance information. You're going to tell me what happened and I'm going to start to put the moves in place so that you can get out of this as unscathed as possible.
Don't let a hit and run accident in the San Fernando Valley, whether it's in the Van Nuys court or the San Fernando court define you. You are someone that's got hopefully a good job, a family, a future and a career.
I know what it takes to get the results that you must have, but you've got to take that first step. You have to say, that's it. I'm not going to worry about this hit and run case anymore.
I'm going to hire somebody like Ron Hedding. I'm going to start to make the moves so we can get the results that we must have.
So, pick up the phone today. Ask for a meeting with Ron Hedding. If you got involved in a hit and run accident, I will contact the Valley Traffic Bureau if your case is in the San Fernando Valley. I can:
- coordinate a meeting;
- you typically won't have to say anything in the meeting;
- we can send them a statement.
They don't want to meet with people right now because of the Coronavirus, so you won't have to say a word.
I will do the talking for you. I will make sure that things are handled the right way and I will make sure that all of your rights and freedoms are protected.
Criminal Defense for California Hit and Run Charges
We can work out getting your car back. We can work out whether we're just going to let the car go to storage.
These are decisions you're going to have to make if you were involved in a hit and run accident and you want to make sure that it's handled the right way. Let me deal with the police.
Don't make a statement that's going to incriminate you. Let me talk to the police and make sure things are handled appropriately, because if they're handled the right way, you're going to end up with the best possible result.
