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.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.

Alexander L.

The firm itself is wonderful. The whole process was seamless from the consultation to the settlement check. The communication was more than enough and I felt like I was apart of the process without the pressure of dealing with it.

Kimberly L.

Everyone on the team was so professional and helpful. It was such a relief to have someone on my side to handle all the details behind the scene so I could focus on getting back to my life at 100%.

They were very friendly, detailed, and stayed in constant communication. Would recommend them and continue to use them.

A.B.

Y’all took incredible care of me. From dealing with one of the most notoriously difficult and selfish insurance companies known to man, to taking my family out of any future legal proceedings due to some majorly painful life changes, to securing me enough return funds to go back to physical therapy – N&G are incredible and so thoughtful and kind. My endless gratitude goes out to y’all and everyone else in the office too!

Everyone was so great at answering all my questions & guiding me through the process.

Thank you so much!
