Hit and Run

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Hit & Run Accident Attorneys

Traffic accidents are difficult enough, but when the at-fault party flees the scene, the accident becomes a hit and run, which is that much more difficult. If you have been injured by a negligent motorist who leaves the scene of the accident, you need the help of a dedicated hit and run accident attorney in Lynnwood, Washington, who has extensive experience bringing these complicated claims.

Driver Requirements

In the State of Washington, every motorist who is involved in a car accident must fulfill the following responsibilities:

  • Stop at – or as close as possible to – the scene of the accident.
  • If you’ve shot past the accident, return to the scene (obstructing traffic as little as possible in the process).
  • Provide the other motorist with your contact and insurance information and your car’s license number.
  • Render whatever assistance you reasonably can to anyone who’s been injured in the accident.
  • If the accident involves a parked vehicle, locate the owner of the car and notify him or her. If you can’t locate the owner, leave a note with all the pertinent information (your contact and insurance information along with your vehicle’s license number) on the vehicle.

Motorists who fail to live up to these responsibilities can face charges.

If the Police Find the Other Driver

If the police are able to locate the at-fault motorist who left the scene of the accident, you can proceed by filing a personal injury claim just as you would have if the motorist had not fled the scene. If the driver is charged, the courts will generally extend your filing deadline until after the criminal trial (or after the case is resolved). If the driver is convicted, the conviction can translate to powerful evidence of fault in your personal injury case. If the other driver is apprehended but is underinsured or uninsured, or if the other driver is never found, you’ll need to proceed through your own underinsured motorist coverage, which is important coverage to carry.

After a Hit-and-Run Accident

If a driver leaves you injured and then flees the scene, there are several steps you should take to help protect your rights and your claim, including:

  • Contact the police. Even if the other driver hit and ran, failing to alert the authorities can complicate your accident claim.
  • Take pictures of the damage to your vehicle, the accident scene, and your own injuries.
  • Take statements from any eyewitnesses at the scene and gather their contact information.
  • Obtain the medical attention you need, and keep in mind that injuries can be slow to present with symptoms and that the shock of being injured in a hit-and-run accident can mask your pain.
