Hit and Run Accidents and Georgia Law

According to O.C.G.A. 40-6-270, a motorist that causes property damage or bodily harm to another person must:

  1. Stop or immediately return to the scene and provide identification and registration information;
  2. Render aid and arrange transportation if it seems necessary or the victim requests it;
  3. Contact emergency medical services and police if the victim is deceased, unconscious or unable to communicate.

Any motorist who violates this law may be subject to punitive damages of up to $250,000 in a lawsuit in addition to criminal penalties.

Identifying the Liable Motorist

In a hit and run accident case, the first thing an attorney should do for you is conduct an investigation of the circumstances of the crash to see if there are any clues as to the identity of the liable driver. Vital evidence may include street surveillance footage, witness accounts and more.

It is absolutely essential for victims of hit and run accidents to maintain their own extensive account of the incident, make note of any detail they can remember, and cooperate with the police since the results of their investigation could be beneficial to the claim.

Unfortunately, the culprit remains unidentified in some hit and run cases. This brings up the question, what can victims and their loved ones do in such situations? There is another coverage option available.

Turning to Uninsured Motorist Coverage in Atlanta

Although you are not required by law to carry uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, it is wise to do so. Not only does UM/UIM coverage provide accident victims with financial assistance when the at-fault driver is unable to do so, it also applies to hit and run cases. Considering the benefits, adding UM/UIM coverage to your automotive policy is absolutely worth it.

Keep in mind that even when you're filing a claim with your own insurance company, you should still consult with your attorney. Insurance adjusters do not discriminate when it comes down to preserving their bottom line. They will try to minimize their payout to you, so it's best if you have a legal professional by your side that prioritizes your best interests.
