A driver can be charged under the Criminal Code under “Fail to Stop at the Scene of the Accident” or under the Highway Traffic Act for “Fail to Remain at the Scene of the Accident.”

If you are involved in or are a witness to an accident you must remain at or immediately return to the scene of the accident; provide all possible assistance; and if requested, give in writing to anyone sustaining loss or injury or to any police officer or to any witness, his or her name, address, driver’s license number and jurisdiction of insurance, motor vehicle liability insurance policy number and policy number, name and address of the registered owner of the vehicle, and the vehicle permit number.  

$400-2000

up to 2 years

7

Penalties for a failing to remain charge include a fine between $400 and $2000, 7 demerit points, possible suspension of driver’s license for up to 2 years, possible jail time up to 6 months, and an increase in insurance rates. If you are convicted, this offence stays on your driving record for three years.

This is a serious charge and is one Legal Action has the knowledge to help you fight. 

I cannot thank Phil and team enough from Legal Action for handling my case with such professionalism and kindness. It was tough time for me and just knowing that I did not have to worry about my ticket gave me such peace of mind. I recommend Legal Action to anyone who needs legal assistance! They are so on point and you can literally leave the information with them and forget that it ever happened. THANK YOU Phil and Team!

Great Service! Legal Action (Phil) was very professional, experienced, knowledgeable and mindful of the situation. He did his fiduciary duty of handling my situation while not causing any inconvenience to my personnel time and well-being. He handled everything on his own while still communicating pertinent information. I highly recommend his services. Jessica (his paralegal) was also a great help in communications and coordination.

Phil, this is the guy to get it done. He will deliver as promised. Don't listen to any of these botched reviews. Phil is an understanding paralegal who is very professional. Jessica is organized, detailed and very polite as well. If you have any legal troubles please consider legal action. They got me the best result on a speeding ticket. Please consider them!

Phil is good at his work. My wife had two tickets which we had filed and missed the court dates for but Phil somehow got them reopened for an upcoming date and had one of them withdrawn due to lack of evidence and we're waiting on the second court date. Fingers crossed! Highly recommend Phil.

Legal Actions has worked a number of cases for me in the last couple years and they always manage to get my charges withdrawn. I highly recommend them if you live in Toronto or the GTA and have any outstanding tickets / cases.

Would you trust all these 5-star reviews with just 1 review on Legal Action praising Phil? Here is a true review. I got a ticket outside of GTA When he first looked at my ticket, he made me think that there is a mistake made by the police officer by saying, "The cop shouldn't have given you this ticket". Phil then said it was gonna cost me extra, because he has to travel to that remote location, and charged me extra. When the trial date was close, he said it was better to hand over my case to his "buddy" at the remote location, who knows the judge in that area very well. He basically handed over my case to his "buddy" to do all the dirty work, and just got the comission. I should have hired a paralegal, a good paralegal directly in that remote area. I paid Phil $$$ for my case, and HE LOST. I wouldn't trust Phil. He is very sneaky!

I was recommended to Phil by my cousin who used him to get out of multiple tickets. I had a 59 over ticket on a motorcycle. Phil talked me through the process, explained to me what arguments he would use to fight it and was honest with me about what he thought his chances were of winning. He took time to answer all my questions and doubts. Not going to lie, I was very doubtful he would win this, but he pulled through! Thanks Phil for the great service!
