Question: What is failure to perform duty after an accident in Wisconsin? What are the penalties?

Answer: In Wisconsin, you do have a duty to report an accident to police. If you hit another vehicle, you have a duty to provide your contact information and insurance information to the owner of the vehicle. The failure to do so may result in civil charges, as well as criminal hit-and-run charges if a person was in the vehicle that was struck. Now, the severity of the charges depend on whether the person was in the car and if there were any injuries.
