The Basics of a Hit and Run Charge
Hit and Run is the type of charge that any one of us can find ourselves facing. It is stressful enough for a person to be involved in a car accident. Even though most drivers know that they have to pull over and exchange information with the other driver, the stress and fear often overtakes their better judgment. Nonetheless, in Washington State, hit and run offenses are taken very seriously by the law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges. Depending on the circumstances, hit and run charges vary from a misdemeanor to a serious felony charges. As such, the consequences range from civil penalties to long jail term, license suspension, and potential immigration consequences.
