Georgia Injury Attorneys
Hit and Run Accidents
The tragedy of being the victim in an automobile accident is compounded when the crash is a hit and run. Victims can be left defenseless and without medical aid during the critical minutes following a crash. Under Georgia law, all drivers involved in an accident that caused vehicle damage or human injury are required to immediately stop or return to the scene. The drivers have a duty to exchange information or to get help if their actions caused an injury.
Why would a driver hit and run? Many times the driver does not have car insurance, a valid driver’s license or does not have legal immigrant status. Other times the drivers are afraid to face the consequences of their actions. Regardless of the reason, a hit and run is a misdemeanor act, which can become a felony offense incurring up to five years in prison.
