Hit & Run DUI Miami Lawyer
DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident
Hit & run crimes in Florida can be considered a felony according to Florida Statute § 316.062, which states a driver's duty to give information and render aid, and § 316.027, which requires the same for any accident resulting in death or personal injury.
Additionally, § 316.061 applies to accidents involving occupied vehicles or attended property and § 316.063 involves damaging an unattended vehicle or property.
During a DUI accident, an individual can face a first-degree felony conviction if they are accused of leaving the scene of a DUI accident without giving information or rendering aid. The only condition is that they must have been aware or had reason to be aware that the accident occurred. Felonies of the first degree can result in a fine of up to $10,000 and may land you in prison for up to 30 years. Make sure that you have an aggressive and skilled Miami DUI attorney on your side if you are facing charges.
