Snohomish County Hit & Run Lawyer

Legal Defense for Drunk Driver Hit & Run in Washington State

If you are involved in a vehicle accident resulting in injuries or fatalities, you are legally required to remain at the scene, provide assistance to any injured passengers or motorists, and provide basic identifying information to the other driver. If you leave, you can be charged with committing a hit-and-run.

There are two main types of hit-and-run cases:

  • Hit-and-run attended: a gross misdemeanor where the vehicle (or object) that was hit is occupied. The consequences are up to 1 year in jail, up to a $5,000 fine, and a mandatory 1 year driver’s license suspension.
  • Hit-and-run unattended: a misdemeanor where the vehicle is not occupied, or parked. The consequences are up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in fines.

If you’ve been accused or charged with a hit-and-run, you need to contact a Snohomish County hit-and-run lawyer immediately. If there were witnesses to the accident, they may have reported your license plate number and physical description to law enforcement. The police may be looking for you or issue a warrant for your arrest. The only way to fight for your future is to call DUIHeroes—we can intervene and help you resolve your legal problems.
