Hit a parked car near Eugene, Oregon?

You’re driving at night. It’s pouring rain, the wind is kicking up, and visibility is severally limited. Winding through the narrow streets south of Matthew Knight Arena, you are exercising all due caution, when suddenly a bicyclist comes to a screeching halt in front of you. You don’t really swerve, but you flinch. Unfortunately, when you flinch, you hear an awful metal-on-metal noise and feel a shudder roll through your car. “It probably isn’t that bad,” you tell yourself, pulling over. But when you get out and see the damage, you realize it’s worse than you thought. Now what?

Call an auto accident attorney!

Everyone should have an attorney saved in their phones for emergencies. By the very nature of accidents, you can never tell when one is going to happen. When the unfortunate does occur, be prepared to contact an attorney with every possible detail you can remember about the scene and situation. Even if it is late at night and you have to leave a voicemail, it will be worth it to make sure you have a record of your testimony. Oregon law requires you attempt to find the owner of the damaged vehicle. If that fails, leave a note.

I forgot to leave my information…

So, let’s say that your forgot to call your attorney and you also forgot to leave your contact information on the vehicle you collided with. Maybe it was really rainy outside. Maybe you were really late. Maybe you didn’t think the accident was really serious. Unfortunately, whatever happened, by leaving the scene of the accident without leaving your information, you have committed a hit-and-run offense.
