Leaving the scene of a car accident is a crime in Washington State. The law requires that a person who is involved in a car accident to stop and exchange information with the other party. In the case of an injury, the driver is required to stay at the scene until legal and medical authorities arrive. To leave an accident is both morally wrong but is also a class B or class C felony and can result in fines and a jail sentence.
If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, not only have you been traumatized but you are likely to feel worse wondering how a person could hit you or your loved one and drive off. In addition, you are left with injuries and worry over your medical bills, lost wages and, in the worst case, how your family will be compensated if a loved one was killed.Washington Hit-and-Run Accident Assistance

If the person who hit you was in a work vehicle at the time of the accident or was in the course of his/her employment, you may be able to pursue a claim against the vehicle's owner or employer.
If the hit-and-run driver is not found, your uninsured motorist cover should cover your injuries and medical benefits, however in this case, your compensation for pain and suffering may be limited.Contact Us
