Hit-and-Run Accidents

In Alabama, a hit-and-run accident in which a car strikes another car and causes damage to it (whether there is a person in the second vehicle or not) is a Class A Misdemeanor and can result in up to a year of jail time, and up to $6,000 in fines. If the hit-and-run causes physical injury or death, the consequences could result in a Class C Felony which can result in jail time of up to 10 years and fines up to $15,000.00.
