What to do if I left the scene of an accident?

I had an auto accident. No one was in the car and there was no damage to it. Previously, I had 3 accidents, 2 of which were my fault. Not realizing, I left the scene. However, 2 witnesses saw me and reported this to the police. What happens now when the policeman visits me? This was unintentional. I’m afraid that I might loose my license. I suffer from some medical problems; the doctor suggested prior to the incident that I be tested.

Based upon the concerns that you have written about, I suggest that you consult immediately with a criminal defense attorney about the mishap that you were in where you left the scene and follow the attorney's advice if you are contacted by law enforcement about it.
