If you have been charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident in Orlando or elsewhere in central Florida, or you believe you will be charged with this crime and you want to learn about your options, our skilled traffic violation lawyer can help.

Leaving the scene of an accident, also known as a hit-and-run, is a serious crime. However, hit-and-run penalties depend on the outcome of the accident. If you hit another motor vehicle or a structure and there was property damage, you could face a fine and jail time if convicted. If the accident resulted in an injury or death, the penalties are much more severe.

You Are Required By Law To Report Accidents

If the owner of the property you hit with your car is present, you have to provide your name, contact information and driver’s license information. If the owner is not present, you are required to report the accident to law enforcement. Leaving a note is not sufficient, because it could be blown away or removed by someone other than the property owner.

If the victim was harmed in the accident, you must call 911 or get help. If you leave the scene without taking the required actions, you could face criminal charges. We defend against:

  • Property Damage
  • Accidents Involving Injury
  • Accidents Involving Death
