Bump In Car Park No Damage Caused

Question:

Failing stop after a collision

I was parking my car and bumped into a parked car behind me I checked both my vehicle and third party vehicle and their was no damage caused to either of them, I didn’t leave a note as there was no damage to the car. I have received a letter from the police stating that I may be prosecuted for failing to leave my details.

Where do I stand with this. I’ve filled in form they sent and put a attached letter explaining what happened. They are saying I drove off which is not the case my car was parked there for a good hour after incident.

Advice on this would be really appreciated

Dominic says:

Fail to stop and fail to report are nasty offences and carry 5-10 penalty points if convicted.

You have a defence if we can show that no damage was caused.

I can help you with this matter, We have very good success rates at persuading the police not to take further action in relation to these matter. Out of the last 75 cases that we have taken on on 6 have resulted in a court summons.

Have you got any penalty points on your licence already? If so, how many? Are you a new driver?

Tell me more and come back to me if you would like my help.
