If you have been involved in a car accident and suspect that you may be charged with hit-and-run, don’t take chances with your future.

It is essential to contact a Seattle hit and run attorney before speaking with law enforcement to ensure that your rights as an accused individual are protected.

At the Law Offices of Seattle hit and run lawyer Jason S. Newcombe, our legal team has over 30 years of experience handling important cases and protecting the rights and driving records of our clients. Hit-and-run is a serious crime, and having an experienced and knowledgeable attorney on your side can help protect your rights during your trial.

What is a Seattle hit and run charge?

In Washington State, a hit-and-run charge applies when one party causes damage to another person’s property (or injures another person) and leaves the scene of the accident before contacting the police, the property owner, and/or providing their driver’s license, vehicle information, and insurance documentation. A hit-and-run charge can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the seriousness of the accident and whether anyone was injured.

Drivers charged with a Seattle hit and run charge may face a number of penalties if convicted.

  • Jail time
  • Steep fines
  • A mandatory driver’s license suspension or revocation of one year or more
  • Long probationary periods
  • Payment for any property damage (restitution)

A hit-and-run will become a part of a person’s permanent driving record, and a conviction would likely mean significantly increased insurance rates as well as disqualification for many jobs involving driving. It is especially important to speak with Seattle hit and run attorneys as soon as possible if you have a commercial driver’s license or other type of occupational license.

Why contact Seattle hit and run lawyers?

We understand the stress and anxiety our clients feel after being involved in a car accident, and we know that there are a number of explanations for what happened. As our client, your Seattle hit and run attorney knows that you may have felt an adrenaline rush, a moment of panic, and perhaps you failed to think clearly or made the wrong decision.

It’s also possible that your version of events does not match that of the police or the other parties involved in the accident. Perhaps it was a minor accident and you did not think you needed to stop. Or perhaps you and your vehicle were mistakenly identified and you were not involved in the accident at all. As Seattle hit and run lawyers, it is our goal to listen to your story and investigate your case – from before the accident occurred to the police investigation to your arrest – in order to provide you the defense you deserve.

Our experienced and resourceful legal defense team takes an aggressive approach, protecting your constitutional rights as an accused party and defending you from being taken advantage of by the justice system.

If you have been accused of a hit-and-run, don’t take chances with your future – contact a Seattle hit and run attorney before speaking to the police.
