Leaving Scene of Accident: Oklahoma City, OK: Martino Law Firm
Motor vehicle accidents are almost always very shocking and emotional experiences. No one plans on being involved in one. But, you must be aware that if you are involved in a car accident that causes injury or death to another person, you have an obligation under Oklahoma law to stop at the scene or as close thereto as possible. You also have a duty to render reasonable aid to any injured person. If you fail to do so, you face the possibility of a felony conviction including imprisonment for up to 10 years and fines of up to $1000.
Often times, there is a valid defense to these allegations, such as the impracticability of immediately stopping after an accident, and/or the factual circumstances surrounding your involvement. I will help you explore all of these defenses and immediately get to work interviewing any and all potential witnesses in order to provide you with the best defense possible.
