Hit and run crimes happen for a variety of reasons, and far more frequently than many realize. Our legal team has encountered situations where motorists had no intention of breaking the law, but left the scene of a Federal Way accident without taking the necessary steps. When they realize their mistake, they decide to go to the authorities and explain what happened. If you are considering approaching the authorities, we recommend retaining professional Federal Way legal counsel ahead of time so that you can be sure your legal rights are fairly acknowledged.

Sometimes motorists panic immediately after an accident, causing them to leave the scene in a moment of adrenaline-fueled poor judgment. When they regain their composure, they realize they made a mistake and want to make it right by approaching the police. Again, it is important to speak with one of our Federal Way hit and run lawyers before reaching out to the authorities to avoid saying something that could be used as evidence in your prosecution.

Car crashes are emotionally-charged experiences, often filled with chaos and confusion, which can make it hard for an eyewitness to accurately identify a driver that fled the scene. This sometimes leads to a false accusation against an innocent driver.
