Leaving the Scene of an Accident

DUI Lawyer in Chicago

If you are involved in an accident in Illinois and leave the scene, it is a serious offense. Damaging an unattended vehicle or other property and failing to report it is classified as a Class A misdemeanor. Failing to stop after causing damage to an attended vehicle is also a Class A misdemeanor and will result in a suspension of driving privileges by the Secretary of State.

In the event that personal injury or death is the result of a hit and run offence, a person will be charged with a felony. Due to the fact that a DUI is a common cause of accidents, upon arrest for leaving the scene of an accident that causes the death or personal injury of another, the offender is subject to breath, blood or urine testing for the presence of alcohol or drugs. It is also required by law that you render aid to anyone injured in an accident and report the accident to the police within a specific amount of time.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the accident, you will need the help of a Chicago DUI attorney.
