What is a Hit and Run?
It does not matter who caused an accident, or incident. A hit and run is simply when someone leaves the scene before the police show up. This could be in a parking lot while you are shopping, or while riding a bicycle, or even during a vehicle collision.
If there was an injury to a person, it can become a felony hit and run. This is a charge by the police, and separate from anything that happened during the incident itself. Depending on what the police find, this could also be a misdemeanor. Both charges are very serious in Florida, which is why you need to have a very experienced hit and run lawyer helping you through this time.
What should you do as a hit and run victim?
Once the police arrive, they will have questions about your hit and run. Be honest. It is okay to say you don’t know something! It is much better to go back and give more information later than to give incorrect information to start with.
