Motor Vehicle Crimes

Pittsburgh Motor Vehicle Crime Defense Attorney

Hit-and-run crimes carry a terrible stigma, as well as the possibility of serious criminal penalties. A person convicted after a hit-and-run accident faces a mandatory minimum sentence of one to two years in state prison.

Furthermore, with advances in criminal investigation techniques, law enforcement officers are more equipped than ever to track down drivers who leave the scene of an accident where serious injury or death occurred.

But horrible accidents happen to good people every day. If you are under investigation or have been arrested for homicide by vehicle or a hit-and-run, you deserve strong criminal defense from experienced Pittsburgh motor vehicle crime defense lawyers who will fight to protect your rights and your freedom — every step of the way.
