About Hit and Run / Leaving the Scene of an Accident:
Hit and run, also called leaving the scene of an accident, is a criminal offense that occurs when a driver is involved in an auto accident and intentionally flees the scene without rendering medical aid, contacting the authorities or exchanging driver/contact information with the other driver/s involved. Depending on whether the Orlando auto accident involved property damage, injury or death, the penalties for a hit and run conviction may vary.
For hit and run causing injury, a defendant may face third degree felony charges and the following maximum penalties: up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. For hit and run causing property damage only, an Orlando driver may face second degree misdemeanor charges and up to 60 days in jail and up to $500 in fines. The penalties that may be enforced for your unique case may vary, so it is important to talk to a criminal attorney about your individual charges.
