Hit and Run Attorneys Portland, Bend Oregon & Vancouver Washington
In most cases, a person involved in an accident is required to stop, provide information and render aid, if necessary.
Failure to stop after an accident is labeled a “hit and run” and can have serious consequences ranging from fines to prison time. Penalties for hit and run charges vary, depending on the extent of the damage and the driver’s criminal driving history. In addition, if a hit and run driver injures somebody, the driver may be liable for civil penalties, including punitive damages.
In most cases there is “uninsured (or under-insured) motorist coverage” through your policy for a hit and run accident even if the at-fault party is not found. “Under-insured” motorist coverage applies if the at-fault driver does not have enough coverage to cover your losses.
