Geherin Law Group Discusses Leaving the Scene of an Accident

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- In Michigan, Leaving the Scene of an Accident statutes punish people who are involved in an accident who don't stop and provide the required information to the other driver or most proximate police department. Even the term "accident" can be vague, leaving a driver uncertain about what her obligations are following a minor incident.  "Knowledge" of the accident provides another grey area, especially if the driver doesn't realize the extent of the accident. Drivers are often unaware of their reporting requirements (after all, when was the last time you heard a public information message telling these people what do in the event of a minor accident, similar to seatbelt use 'click it or ticket' or texting/driving 'it can wait, as it's against law'.  What information is required to report, other than a name and insurance information?  This ambiguity can lead to a separate charge, called "Fail to Report an Accident," still a misdemeanor.
