Utah DUI Hit And Run Attorney
DUI hit and run cases are often very difficult for the prosecution to prove. The problem for the police and the prosecutors is that it is often impossible to know if the driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
Even if a person is intoxicated at their home several hours after an accident, there is no way of knowing when they started to drink unless there are witnesses involved. Frequently, there are no witnesses in these cases, as the other driver is dealing with the shock of an auto accident and unable to assess the condition of the other driver.
If you have been arrested for DUI hit and run, contact an attorney as soon as possible. Please remember that anything you say to the police can be used as evidence against you.
