If you are a motorist involved in a motor vehicle accident, there are specific rules that you must follow after the crash. You must remain at the scene until law enforcement arrives. The officers will question you as part of their investigation, and determine if any citations must be issued due to the crash. If you leave the accident location before the officers tell you that you are free to go, you could potentially be facing hit-and-run charges.
The consequences of these charges depend upon what happened in the accident. If there are no injuries, it is likely that you will be charged with a misdemeanor, which can carry a significant fine of up to $1,000. If someone was injured or killed in the crash, it is possible that you could be facing felony charges.
What To Do If Charged With A Hit-And-Run Accident
If police issue you a ticket for leaving the scene of an accident, you have to take immediate action to minimize the potential loss of your driving privileges and other penalties that may be handed down. Failing to present an aggressive defense in this situation could have a severe impact upon your future.
