Let Us Help You Defend Your Rights and Freedom

Hit and run charges can be surprisingly simple to acquire. Anyone who is involved in a car accident and failed to stop can be charged with the crime in the state of Indiana. It is required by law to stay at the scene of an auto accident if you are involved in any way. Failing to do so can lead to a warrant for your arrest.

If you’re facing a hit and run charge, you could be looking at high fines and potentially jail time, depending on the situation. Talk to one of our skilled Fort Wayne hit and run lawyers about your case as soon as possible. The faster we learn about your situation, the sooner we can start mounting a defense on your behalf.

Hit & Run Penalties in Indiana

The severity of your punishment will depend on the circumstances of the crash. Factors that can determine how severe your sentence is needs to include the following:

  • Any bodily harm done.
  • Intoxication of the driver.
  • Area in which the accident happened (such as a school zone).
  • Prior offenses.
  • Possession of drugs.

In most cases, a hit and run is considered a Class A misdemeanor, which can get you up to 1 year in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. Likewise, you could face probation, a suspended license, community service, drug testing, mandatory employment, and any other punishment the judge deems fair. If the hit and run involves bodily harm to other people involved in the accident, the charge becomes a Level 6 felony, which can get you up to 3 years in prison, $10,000 in fines, and additional similar court orders.
