A Case For a Hit and Run Lawyer
If you have been charged with Hit and Run in Arizona you are being accused of a serious crime. You are subject to up to a year in jail, a $5,000 fine and license suspension in addition to higher insurance rates for up to three years.
Here are the main types of hit and run incidents:
- Failing to render aid / provide information – Failing to provide information or assistance following an accident can subject drivers to Class 3 misdemeanor charges – punishable by fines and up to 30 days in jail.
- Parked vehicles / non-vehicle property – Drivers who leave the scene after hitting a parked vehicle or damaging property other than a vehicle (such as a mailbox), and who fail to locate the owner or leave a note providing their information, may also face Class 3 misdemeanor charges.
- Damage to a vehicle – If your accident involved only damage to another vehicle, and no physical injuries, ARS 28-662 requires you to stop at the scene, or immediately return to the scene if you are unable to stop, and provide information and assistance when necessary. Fleeing the scene of an accident involving vehicle damage is a Class 2 misdemeanor – punishable by fines and up to four months in jail.
- Injury or death – Fleeing the scene of an accident that results in serious physical injury or death is the most serious hit and run offense. As a class 2 felony, this crime is punishable by a minimum of three years in state prison, and up to 12.5 years if aggravating circumstances were involved (or probation with up to 1 year in jail in some cases). Drivers also face a 10-year revocation of their driver’s license.
- Injury or death (not at fault for crash) – If a driver who fled the scene was involved in a crash involving serious injury or death but did not cause the accident, they can be charged with a Class 3 felony, which is punishable by a 5-year driver’s license revocation and between 2 to 8.75 years in state prison, or probation with up to 1 year in jail. Non-serious injuries may subject drivers to Class 5 felony charges, punishable by a minimum of nine months’ imprisonment.
