Pennsylvania Hit and Run Accidents
When you are in an auto accident in Pennsylvania, whether you are driving a car, motorcycle or bicycle, you are required to stop and exchange personal data and insurance information with other accident victims. Perpetrators may leave the scene for a range of reasons, from being uninsured to driving with a suspended license or while under the influence. Speaking with a Bethlehem hit and run accident lawyer can ensure you get compensation for property damage and physical injuries sustained in the accident.
Providing the Right Information
Pennsylvania law requires that the drivers of all vehicles involved in an auto accident stop at or near the site. Leaving the scene can result in hit and run charges brought against any perpetrators or victims. The drivers involved in the accident are required to furnish specific documentation to the others involved including:
- Name and current address
- Proof of automobile insurance
- Vehicle registration information
- A valid driver’s license
If there are individuals injured in the accident, the liable driver is also responsible for rendering assistance and ensuring they are transported to a medical facility if treatment is needed.
Leaving the Scene Charges
Fleeing the site of an auto collision constitutes a hit and run. In Pennsylvania, failure to stop may result in driver’s license suspension and misdemeanor charges; fines and jail time may occur. In the event someone is seriously injured, hit and run drivers may face felony charges.
