Have you been injured by a driver who hit you and abandoned the scene? Call a Seattle hit-and-run attorney today for help getting the compensation you need and deserve.

After an accident that causes injuries or property damage, you’re required by law to stay at the scene, but some people believe they can get away with fleeing. Unfortunately, you might have fallen victim to one of these reckless drivers—someone who hit your car or you before taking off.

Seeking compensation may seem like a lost cause. After all, if the runaway driver didn’t leave his or her information, how are you supposed to hold him or her financially accountable for your damages? This is where a Seattle hit-and-run lawyer can step in and help with your case.

At Craig Swapp & Associates, we’re intent on finding the driver and obtaining the compensation you’re owed. We know how hard it can be to find the driver, file your claim, and get the most out of your case, but we’re here to help you do just that.  

Finding the Hit-and-Run Driver

Many people assume that they’ll never find the hit-and-run driver. If they didn’t see the license plate number or catch the make and model of the car, they might think there’s no way to catch the person responsible.

Fortunately, your hit-and-run attorney in Seattle will have resources to find the person in question. After all, the police take hit-and-run cases very seriously, and you can expect help getting answers through them.

And your attorney may be able to find evidence elsewhere. There are plenty of methods to spot the perpetrator leaving the scene, such as the following:

  • Video surveillance cameras, especially in parking lots
  • Eyewitnesses
  • Information about the car, such a partial license plate number or vehicle description

Filing an Uninsured Motorist Claim After a Seattle Hit-and-Run Crash

Unfortunately, you may still be unable to find the person responsible for your hit-and-run accident in Seattle. The good news is you’re still not out of options.

In Washington state, you’re able to file an uninsured motorist claim if you have insurance that covers you against these drivers. Your uninsured motorist insurance coverage can make a difference, especially in cases like this, where you may be unable to act otherwise. We can help you file a claim with your own insurance company and maximize the compensation you receive.
