How to Report a Hit and Run Accident

When reporting the accident do your best to remember as much information as possible about the vehicle that hit you, including:

  • Details about the car such as make, model, and color
  • Unique or identifying features on the car, like bumper stickers or dents
  • License plate number
  • Driver's appearance

Our Brevard County hit and run injury attorneys bring dedication and determination to every case they represent. We will work diligently to help you recover the largest settlement possible.

Holding Drivers Accountable for Leaving the Scene

Leaving the scene of a car accident is not only an act of gross negligence, but a felony offense in our state. According to Florida Statutes §316.027 (2011), any driver involved in a collision which results in personal injury is required to stay and provide personal information and any aid which may be necessary.

What Are the Penalties for Leaving the Scene of a Car Accident in Florida?

Failure to do so is punishable by fines and a possible prison sentence. Fatal crashes incur even harsher penalties if a driver leaves the scene.

These penalties can include:

  • Up to 60 days in prison and $500 fine for accidents involving just property damage
  • Revoke license, up to five years in prison and $5,000 fine for accidents involving injuries
  • Revoke license, 4-30 years in prison and $10,000 fine for accidents involving fatalities

What Compensation Is Available in a Hit and Run Injury Claim?

Regardless of these penalties which may be imposed on the driver who caused your accident, you should not expect to receive fair compensation without filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim in civil court.

You have a right to recover damages for all your losses, ranging from:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • And pain and suffering

However, the insurance companies will most likely seek to avoid paying the fair value of your claim, either by shifting the blame to you or by minimizing the costs associated with your injuries. Hire a hit and run accident attorney right away to protect your interests after a hit-and-run accident. Call High Stack Gordon Kirby!
