Importance of defense attorney for reckless driving

On Behalf of | Oct 10, 2014 | Reckless Driving

Never underestimate the importance of having a strong legal defense team by your side. Imagine being part of a horrific car accident that resulted in a death. Now imagine that you weren’t the driver who caused it, yet you still have to deal with the consequences. Thanks to evidence and a solid defense attorney, the driver of a Toyota Solara that crashed into a day care center back on April 9th, will not face any charges. The man’s car was hit by an out of control SUV, which sent the Toyota crashing into the day care center. 

A four-year-old girl was killed in the crash and the driver of the SUV is still facing several felony charges, including leaving the scene of an accident. Luckily for the driver of the Toyota, there was no evidence to prove that he was driving recklessly before the crash.

The driver of the SUV is looking at serious jail time for reckless driving and leaving the scene of the accident. Besides a prison sentence, he could also lose his license for up to five years. Leaving the scene of the accident might be his biggest legal headache, especially since the accident caused the death of a little girl. It’s very difficult to overlook this fact. Law enforcement focuses on these kinds of cases all the time. They use up substantial time in investigating hit and runs to make sure they got it right. The best thing to do in a worst case scenario such as this is to stay put after an accident and get legal representation as fast as you can.
