Hit and Run

Hit & Run Attorney Services in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia

Hit and run car accidents and collisions can be devastating. Getting into a car accident can be the one of the most upsetting events in someone’s life. Your life can be permanently, or at least semi-permanently, disrupted by the legal fees, hospital bills, property damage, and psychological and/or emotional distress. The only thing that can possibly make a car accident worse is if you are injured or your property is damaged, and the other person takes off – a so called hit and run accident. If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a hit and run, consult with the car accident lawyer DC trusts at Cohen & Cohen.

Hit & Run Attorney

Hit and run accidents are becoming more common, especially in areas like Washington, D.C. where there is a fairly large amount of pedestrian and bike traffic. In September of 2011, Ashley Halsey III wrote an article for the Washington Post, hoping to get information about the huge amount of unsolved hit and run accidents that had happened in the D.C area so far that year. Halsey wrote that there had been seventeen hit and run accidents by September, thirteen of them were fatal, and all of them were unsolved, according to the American Automobile Association.


State Laws Vary. A Hit & Run Lawyer Can Determine Whether You’re Eligible For Compensation

In Washington, D.C., fleeing the scene of the accident is illegal in the case that one motorist causes another motorist injury or substantial property damage. If there is an injury, the driver is required by law to contact the police and stay or leave their information with a coherent party, until the police arrive. In Virginia, drivers involved in any traffic accident are required to wait at the scene for police. If both drivers are injured, they are allowed to drive straight to the hospital but must provide their information in a timely manor. In Maryland, not only is a driver responsible for staying at the scene of the accident if the other party is injured or has damaged property, but they are responsible for attending to the injuries of the other person if they caused the accident. Failure to remain at the scene of the accident in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C., can result in fines, jail time, and enough points to revoke a license.

If someone has abandoned you or a member of your family after causing, or even just being involved in, an accident, the state you live in entitles you to compensation for the damage the other person caused, physically, emotionally, and financially. Leaving the scene of an accident without even checking if the other person is alive is an incredibly cold blooded thing to do, that most people would never dream of doing.

As you can see from Halsey’s article, police cannot be the only resource on whom you rely as you try to recover from your accident. So many car accidents happen that police often do not have the manpower or time to solve each one. However, if you have a witness or piece of evidence, such as the other driver’s license plate number, an experienced hit and run attorney from Cohen & Cohen can help.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
