Possible Defense in Las Vegas Hit & Run Involving Injury
In Nevada, prosecutors have up to three years to file felony hit-and-run charges. In hit-and-run cases involving injury, a defense attorney may be able to argue that the defendant:
- Wasn’t in the accident and wasn’t required to stop.
- Was unaware they were involved in an accident.
- Sufficiently fulfilled all legal obligations.
- Was too incapacitated after the accident to stop, exchange information, and provide aid to the other driver(s).
A hit-and-run case involving injury is typically built with evidence from GPS car data, traffic surveillance video, eyewitness accounts, and smartphone videos taken by people at the scene. An experienced defense attorney will gather, review, and present the evidence necessary to reduce or dismiss charges of a hit-and-run involving injury.
