Your facts are unclear. But try consulting with a criminal defense attorney.
In seeking an attorney on this site, beware of limiting your search to attorneys with a 10 rating, and carefully read the AVVO disclaimer regarding their rating system. There are certain factors that are given great weight which do not necessarily have any bearing on an attorney's experience, abilities, and results with certain types of cases. Accordingly, the rating numbers can be misleading. Also beware of basing your choice on the fee charged, as a low fee, depending on the skill, experience and determination of the specific attorney handling your case, could actually have an inverse relationship to the amount actually put in your pocket.
Ok So if they are claiming it is a hit and run-the owner must report it to his Insurance Company--I would also, get on the AVVO "Find a Lawyer" tool bar and select a criminal defense attorney who handles traffic citations.
Whenever anyone is involved in a situation in which criminal charges can or will be made against them, and whenever anyone's liberty is at stake, a local criminal lawyer should be retained.
Report this to your insurance company. Then retain an attorney who handles these kinds of cases.
