I bumped into the car next to me in the parking lot, and I left the scene. What are the consequences?
If you fail to report an accident in a parking lot, you can be charged with hit-and-run.  No matter how small the damage is, if your car causes damage to another car or an object, you are obligated to find the owner of the vehicle or property and exchange insurance information with them.
If you are unable to locate the owner, you are required to leave your contact information on the other vehicle so that the owner can contact you about the damages.
If you fail to do this, you can be arrested and charged with a criminal misdemeanor.

If your vehicle causes damage to another vehicle or someone else's property, make every effort to find the owner of the vehicle or property. If you are unable to locate the owner, you are obligated to leave your contact information for the owner.

If you have questions about the above, or if you have been charged with hit and run, contact the traffic ticket defense attorney Scott Miller in Alpharetta, Georgia, for a free consultation. 770-408-1001
