Woodstock Hit & Run Accident Attorneys
Representing Clients in Hit & Run Cases Throughout Atlanta & Northern Georgia
The State of Georgia requires drivers to stop and remain at the scene after a collision. If a driver leaves the scene, it may be considered a hit-and-run. This is a very serious offense. You have the same rights of any other person injured in a car accident, but because of the hit and run, you may also be entitled to additional damages known as punitive damages.
Even if the other driver is never found, you may still have a claim for damages from your own insurance company if you purchased uninsured motorist (UM) coverage.
What to Do After a Hit & Run Accident
If you or a loved one have been involved in a hit-and-run accident, gather as much information about the offending vehicle as possible. E.g., a description of the car, passengers in the car, conversations with witnesses, etc.
Some ideas about this include:
- Distinguishable marks on the other vehicle
- License plate number
- The color of the vehicle
- The damage caused to the other vehicle
- The make and model of the vehicle
