A hit and run accident, according to Florida law, is defined as one where the responsible motorist leaves the scene without complying with their legal obligations. This can include cases where the driver failed to stop after colliding with another vehicle or person, or where the responsible motorist left the scene of the accident before waiting for the police to arrive and confirm they can legally leave. Florida statute 316.062 states that a driver involved in an accident resulting in injury or death must provide their details and aid to anyone who needs it. These details must include their name, address, and vehicle registration number.

Despite this legal obligation, Miami, and other areas of Florida, have one of the highest number of hit and run accidents in the United States, according to recent statistics and, if you or a loved one have been affected, you could benefit from expert legal representation from an experienced Miami hit and run accident attorney.

According to statistics compiled by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, Florida, along with New Mexico and Louisiana, experienced the highest number of hit and run accidents per capita between 2006 and 2016. Over the course of the 10-year study, researchers found that:

  • Hit and run fatalities increased by 60% between 2006 and 2016, across the United States as a whole; equating to around a 7.2% increase per year since 2009
  • Over the 10-year period in question, Florida saw 1,814 hit and run accidents in which at least one death occurred, and many more where the resulting injuries were not fatal
  • A total of 682,000 hit and run accidents took place across the United States between 2006 and 2016
  • 65% of those killed in hit and run accidents were either bicyclists or pedestrians
