Criminal Traffic

Leaving the scene of an accident

Knowingly leaving the scene of an accident, even if there are no injuries, with property damage exceeding $50.00, is a misdemeanor offense. Such situations often arise from minor collisions, where a driver’s actions might have startled the other driver, prompting them to leave the
scene without engaging with law enforcement or reporting the incident.

These cases, especially first-time offenses, tend to be minor in nature, particularly when your auto insurance company is involved. We can quickly speak with the State’s Attorney about a pathway to amend the case to a non-criminal offense.

Since 1991, the law office of Frank P. Bianco, P.A., has been representing individuals charged with criminal violation. If you or someone you know has been arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, contact the law office of Frank P. Bianco, P.A. Let us put our experience and skills to work for you.
