File a Crash Report Immediately
If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident in Tacoma, your official crash report will contain important information that bolsters and supports your right to financial compensation. As soon as your crash report is available, obtain two copies – one for your personal records and one for your lawyer. Your crash report will tell your lawyer:
- The date, time, and location of the accident
- The road and weather conditions
- Witness statements and observations
- The investigating officer’s notes and diagrams
Your crash report might also tell police and your lawyer if there was debris or other items like dropped license plates or witness recollections of license plate numbers that can help identify and locate the driver who fled the scene of the accident he caused. A member of our team can help you learn more about the benefits of your crash report and of having a Tacoma hit and run accident lawyer on your side.

Do Not Run Out of Time to File Your Lawsuit
Because the car accident that caused your injuries took place in Tacoma, the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit for compensation is defined by Washington’s statute of limitations. According to RCW § 4.16.080, you generally have three years to file your lawsuit.
Proving the cause of the accident you were involved in, collecting supportive evidence, building a comprehensive case file, and calculating the value of your claim takes time. While you are focused on your physical recovery, your lawyer can focus on your financial recovery. Doing both simultaneously can help ensure you comply with the local statute of limitations.
