Hit-and-Run Accidents Demand an Aggressive Attorney - Call Zbinden & Curtis
No one wants to be involved in any kind of accident. But when an accident does happen, we at least expect to exchange information with the other driver or drivers involved. With hit-and-run accidents, this doesn't happen because the other driver leaves the scene. If you've been involved in a hit and run accident in Oregon or Washington, you probably feel frustrated and angry, especially if you're seriously injured or suffered significant property damage in the form of a smashed car.
At Zbinden & Curtis, we understand the frustration felt by our clients who have been involved in an Oregon hit-and-run accident or a hit-and-run crash in Washington. When we take on a hit-and-run case, we aggressively pursue maximum compensation and stand up to the insurance companies. We put our experience and resources to work for our clients.
Reasons for Hit-and-Run Accidents
A hit-and-run driver may have been driving while intoxicated or operating without any insurance. Whatever the reason, there's hardly ever a legitimate excuse for the hit-and-run driver to leave the accident scene.
Our Washington and Oregon hit-and-run attorneys know how to obtain compensation for our clients in a hit-and-run case. While the person responsible for the accident might not be known, your own insurance company may be able to pay for the damages associated with the accident.
If you've been in a hit-and-run accident, you can take steps to strengthen your claim.
- Try to write down the license plate number or other identifying details about the vehicle or driver that hit you. Don't try to stop the driver after you have tried to make an identification. Leave that to the police.
- Call the police and give them all the details you can about the vehicle and driver.
- Obtain contact information from any possible witnesses.
- Photograph your car and the scene of the accident if you have a camera.
- Get in touch with a Portland personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
