Case #: 20######
After picking up a friend from a medical office, our client unknowingly backed into an occupied car and left the scene. The friend passed away a few weeks later from unrelated medical reasons, but not before the Firm’s attorney was able to speak with him at the hospital and document his testimony. The deceased friend verified that neither he nor our client were aware that their vehicle made contact with another car. The Firm’s attorney set the case for trial and was prepared to request the Court to accept the deceased’s testimony under a hearsay exception, despite the prosecutor’s objection. On the day of trial, the prosecutor dropped all charges.
