Elias Damianakos is an experienced Tucson hit and run attorney and defends people charged with hit and run charges, leaving the scene of an accident, and fleeing the scene charges. Arizona’s statutes relating to hit and run and leaving the scene accident are found in a series of statutes:
- A.R.S. § 28-661 – Leaving the scene of an accident involving death or physical injury
- A.R.S. § 28-662 – Leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage
- A.R.S. § 28-663 – Duty to give information and assistance
- A.R.S. § 28-664 – Leaving the scene of accident involving an unattended vehicle
- A.R.S. § 28-665 – Leaving the scene of an accident involving fixtures on roadway
In general, these Arizona hit and run laws require a person to stay at the scene of an accident or provide some type of notice to the property owner of the accident. Often after an accident, a person may be in a panicky state and may forget to provide the required notice. The penalties for leaving the scene of an accident/hit and run in Arizona include a fine, and potential jail time depending on the seriousness of the accident.
