Felony hit and run is defined by most states as leaving the scene of an accident where there is any type of injury to a person, whether the injured person is a pedestrian or an occupant of a vehicle. Remember, a hit and run might be classified as a misdemeanor instead of a felony.
Considering this, what do you do when you hit a parked car?
Here's what to do if you hit a parked car
- Stay-It's the law. Leaving the scene of an accident is against the law in every state and can be considered a hit and run.
- If no one arrives, leave a note. Keep it simple.
- Take photos.
- Look for witnesses.
- Call your insurance company.
Do I have to pay if someone hits my car?
If someone hits your vehicle and damages it you would be making a claim against their liability coverage and there would not be a deductible due for either you or the other driver. If the insurer finds their covered driver completely at fault you vehicle will be repaired at no cost to you.
