Can You Be Charged with Hit & Run if You Return to the Scene?

Can you still be charged with hit and run if you returned to the scene of the accident? In this video, Wallin & Klarich hit and run attorney Chris Lee explains that returning to the scene could look favorable sometimes, but you could also be incriminating yourself by admitting fault.

In order to avoid hit and run charges, you must follow the advice of attorney Chris Lee. Don't make statements to the police, and it is always best never to leave the scene of an accident.
