Hit-and-Run Laws in Kent

Leaving the scene of an accident without stopping and exchanging information with the other driver is a crime in the state of Washington. If a driver flees the scene, they could face a large fine and even up to three months in jail. Anytime that an accident occurs in which there is bodily injury, death, or property damage, drivers are required under the law to stop and exchange names, addresses, vehicle license plate number, and liability insurance information.

What to Do if You’re in a Hit-and-Run

If you’re in a hit and run, you may be in shock and overwhelmed. While this is understandable, it’s important that you act quickly to protect your right to financial recovery. Here’s what you should do if you’re in a hit-and-run accident:

  1. Call the police immediately. Remain at the scene until the police arrive. Provide the police with as much information as you can about the other vehicle involved and its driver.
  2. Get medical attention—if you’re worried about which insurance policy will pay for your medical bills, you need to seek medical care.
  3. Report the accident to your insurance company—your insurance company will want to know about the crash and launch an investigation.
  4. Call an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner that you contact a qualified Kent hit-and-run attorney, the greater your chances are that the driver will be located. 

How Our Kent Hit-and-Run Accident Attorneys Can Help You Recover Compensation

Your biggest fear if you are in a hit-and-run accident may be that you will not be able to recover compensation for your economic and noneconomic losses. When you work with an attorney, however, your chances of recovering a settlement are improved. Here’s how our law firm can help: 

 

  • We will open an investigation into your crash and work with the police to track down the driver who fled the scene of the accident.
  • We will explore all potential sources of compensation. This will be important, even if the other driver is located. When a driver flees the scene, it is often because they do not have insurance or do not have enough insurance to fully cover them. 
  • We will work with your insurance company and any other insurance companies involved to negotiate a settlement that fully compensates you.
