Hit & run charges are taken very seriously in the State of Virginia. Whether you simply grazed a car in the supermarket parking lot and neglected to leave your contact information or got into a serious accident and fled the scene, if you are accused of a hit & run, you could face significant penalties.
Punishments for hit & run charges include consequences from both the Virginia Department Of Motor Vehicles as well as potential criminal charges depending on the severity of the accident. You could stand to lose your license for a period of time, be ordered to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines, lose your car insurance or have higher car insurance premiums and even be sentenced to jail time. Frankly, this is something you just can’t afford to deal with.
