I am available to discuss this with you if you like.
Nothing in this communication should be construed as creating an attorney-client relationship. I provide this service for educational purposes only. I will take no action on your behalf unless you have hired me and a written retainer agreement is signed. I am licensed only in Tennessee and I strongly suggest you consult with an attorney in your city and state as Statute of Limitation deadlines can limit your recovery.
Leaving the scene is a crime and you face consequences for committing it, but if you hire a qualified criminal defense attorney who regularly practices in the Memphis criminal court system, you may not face the harshest consequences. I strongly recommend speaking with a Memphis lawyer immediately.
