The criminal defense lawyers at Carosella & Associates in West Chester, PA provide representation for clients in hit and run cases.
WEST CHESTER, PA, January 25, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — The defense attorneys at Carosella & Associates know that when someone is facing hit and run charges, they need the best legal representation possible. Their experienced team has represented clients in all types of felony and misdemeanor hit and run cases. Their defense lawyers are well-versed in the nuances of Pennsylvania law and help clients understand the charges they may be facing.
“Hit and run accidents are often the results of someone making a poor decision at the moment,” says Vince Carosella, founding Partner. “This momentary lapse in judgment can have serious consequences, like the loss of your driver’s license, hefty fines, and jail time. Our attorneys are experienced negotiators and litigators who may help get charges reduced or dismissed. If a hit and run case goes to trial, our team provides a vigorous defense and works toward the best possible outcome for each client.”
In Pennsylvania, any driver who is involved in a motor vehicle accident that results in property damage or injury is required to stop and provide contact, vehicle registration, and driver’s license information to other drivers involved in the accident and assist any injured persons. Penalties for leaving the scene of an accident depend on the circumstances. If the accident only resulted in property damage, a hit and run driver could be convicted of a 3rd-degree misdemeanor, which carries a fine of up to $2,500 and one year in prison. If someone is injured or killed, a hit and run driver may face felony charges. If convicted, they could end up losing their license, more than $2,500 in fines, and up to seven years in prison.
Facing any type of charge is stressful and can have a serious impact on all aspects of a defendant’s life.

They know how to build solid defenses in hit and run cases and advocate for their clients.
