Leaving the Scene

Hit & Run DUI Defense Attorneys in Fort Myers

Florida law requires drivers to stop at the scene of an accident, exchange insurance and contact information, and render aid to any injured parties.

Penalties for Leaving the Scene

Routine DUI charges are typically misdemeanors, carrying penalties of up to six months in jail, fines of as much as $1,000, and suspension of your driver’s license for up to six months. Leaving the scene of an accident involving a DUI can increase the severity of maximum sentences dramatically. If a DUI hit-and-run accident results in serious injuries or death, you may be charged with a felony.
