Civil Compromise for Hit & Run

30 March 2012

If you are facing a Hit & Run charge, you are at risk of receiving a misdemeanor conviction.  All is not lost even if you did commit the conduct alleged.

It is important to have an attorney representing you in this type of case.  Having an attorney may make it possible to have a civil compromise.  A civil compromise is simply having the victim agree to dismiss the charges if all damages are paid.

The civil compromise is not automatic, and has to be negotiated between the prosecutor or the judge, as well as the victim.

Some of the factors involved in negotiating a civil compromise are the amount of damage and conduct involved in the accident.  Having an attorney can help put you and your conduct in the best light.
