Reckless Driving & Leaving The Scene Of An Accident
Reckless driving is a traffic crime with potentially serious consequences. Florida law considers Reckless Driving as any action behind the wheel that shows a willful or wanton disregard for the safety of others.
It is considered a misdemeanor in Florida and can result in a fine, probation or even a jail sentence. If allegations of Reckless Driving arise from a crash, law enforcement can raise the charge to a felony depending on the level of injury to others. Moreover, a conviction for Reckless Driving is damaging to your driving record and can cause your insurance rates to increase drastically.
An attorney with experience in criminal traffic cases can fight for dismissal of charges by seeking diversionary programs for the client or questioning the soundness of the officer’s arrest.
Leaving the Scene of an Accident or Hit-And-Run Crimes
Another criminal traffic offense you may be facing is Leaving the Scene of an Accident (LSA). Hit-and-Run crimes are taken seriously by Florida law enforcement. Law enforcement can treat the crime of Leaving the Scene of an Accident as a misdemeanor or felony.
Regardless of the severity level designated by law enforcement, a conviction for LSA can result in significant incarceration.
An attorney can fight against the charges and, in some circumstances, negotiate dismissal of your case through a diversionary program.
