Leaving the Scene of a Crash Case Dismissed in Miami, FL by South Florida Defense Attorneys

Hit and Run Charges Get Dismissed by South Florida Defense Attorneys in Miami, Florida

Outcome of Hit and Run Case:


On the morning of the trial, the case was dismissed. This allowed D’mitri to move on with his life and not have a criminal conviction on his record.

Client Concerns about Hit and Run Charge:

Because D’mitri is a resident of California and the incident happened while he was on vacation, he was concerned that there would be a large cost of travel if he had to show up to multiple court dates in Miami. However, we were able to waive his appearance in court so that he would not have to pay those expenses. D’mitri was concerned about not knowing how the Miami court system worked, and being unfamiliar with the area as well. His friend referred him to our firm and he hired us immediately, helping this process become smoother as we could provide him with all of the necessary information. D’mitri has also never had a criminal record, and was worried that this incident would ruin his reputation and hurt future jobs.

Facts on Hit and Run Case:

While on vacation in Miami, D’mitri R. and his friends went out to party in South Beach. D’mitri decided to rent a BMW i8, a fancy sports car, to ride around in with his friend. It started to rain as they were driving, and a fast turn coupled with the wet road resulted in the vehicle spinning out of control and crashing into a tree. D’mitri and his friend got out of their vehicle to try to find help, as they were both injured from the crash. When the police arrived on the scene, they charged D’mitri with the crime of Leaving the Scene of an Accident.


Strategy of Attack on Hit and Run Case:

We were able to argue two faults in the case, one legal and the other factual. On the legal side, we argued that there was no way to prove that D’mitri was driving as both men were outside of the car when the police arrived. We also used the regulations of the Florida Accident Report Privilege, which requires people to tell the cops exactly what had happened when a crash occurs but bars this admission in a criminal case. This allowed D’mitri’s statements admitting to being the driver, to be thrown out and not used against him in court. On a factual basis, D’mitri had no criminal intent to leave the scene of the crash. The police reported that him and his friend were walking away from the scene, but in actuality were trying to flag people down for help since they both lost their phones. We were able to use this act of goodwill to find help for his injured friend as a defense against his case.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
