Leaving the Scene of an Accident Investigation: What Is The Best Outcome?

Aggressive Trial Attorney With a Reputation for Success

If you receive a Hit & Run Letter from a police department - City of Miami, Miami Beach, Miami-Dade, for instance - you are probably scared.

This is a normal reaction to finding out that you are under a criminal investigation for the crime of Leaving the Scene of an Accident (commonly called a "hit and run").

The worst case scenario is for you to be charged with a crime.  That is what we want to avoid when dealing with a hit and run investigation.

Best case scenario? Nothing happens. Police conclude that no crime or infraction (non-criminal traffic offense) occurred and they simply write a report and the matter is closed.

Second best scenario? Issuance of a non-criminal traffic ticket.

This can happen with shrewd negotiation and proof that the driver (you) has auto insurance.

This will typically give the police department assurance that the other driver in the accident will be compensated.
