Charges of Leaving the Scene of an Accident, or Accidents Involving Death or Personal Injuries, C.R.S. 42-4-1601, in Denver require the involvement of an experienced criminal defense attorney. If you are charged with Hit and Run, police will try to speak with you immediately about what happened. In this event, it is always best not to speak with them, as they are only looking to get you to admit to the elements of the crime and make an arrest. Even telling the truth to police can result in an arrest. Instead of speaking with police, always remain silent and consult a criminal defense lawyer if facing Hit and Run charges in Colorado.
