Criminal Hit and Run Lawyers

Hit and Run Law

The crime of colliding with another driver or their personal property and failing to stop and identify oneself is called fleeing an officer or accident scene, commonly known as a hit and run incident. It is the responsibility of the driver who causes the collision to show proof of insurance and exchange identification information. The criminal act of hit and run occurs when a driver flees the scene of the accident. The most common form of a hit and run accident is a parking lot collision, where a driver hits a parked car.

Criminal Hit and Run Legal Issues:

Hit and runs have severe consequences such as suspension of drivers license as well as imprisonment. Sometimes a witness will see and record the license plate number of the driver fleeing the scene. Sometimes the damage on the vehicle of the person who fled the scene is so extensive; it is identified while getting repaired.
