Leaving the scene of a property damage accident or one that caused injury to a person is a criminal offense, not merely a traffic ticket.
Penalties including fines and jail time may be imposed as a consequence of leaving the scene of an accident.
In some cases, especially when an accident causes injury or death, a driver who leaves the scene of an accident can be subject to serious criminal charges such as “felony hit and run.” In addition, driver’s license revocation or suspension is likely as well as sharp car insurance hikes that will surely catch up to any driver who leaves the scene of an accident.
If the fleeing driver caused the accident, a personal injury lawsuit is likely to dog him/her if the crash resulted in injuries to other people (drivers, passengers, or pedestrians) or caused extensive property damage.
