Maryland Hit & Run Offenses

Get help from a Silver Spring criminal & traffic violation lawyer.

In the state of Maryland, any driver involved in an accident must stop and provide insurance information to others involved in the accident, as well as provide reasonable assistance to those who have been injured. Failure to remain at the scene of the accident can result in severe penalties and criminal charges.

Even if it was a minor accident and no one was hurt, you are still required to remain at the scene and file an accident report with the police. If you are charged with a hit and run, then you could face severe penalties upon conviction.

Penalties for Hit & Run in Maryland

If the accident that you allegedly "ran" from involved an injury, then you could incur penalties of up to 5 years in prison, and up to $5,000 in fines. In the case of a fatal hit and run in which a person was killed and a driver failed to stop and remain at the scene, the driver who fled could face up to 10 years in prison, a $10,000 fine, and other criminal penalties such as a charge of vehicular manslaughter.

If you have been arrested and charged with a hit and run, then you need legal representation on your side that can provide you with aggressive representation to defend you in court.
