Bicyclist Critically Injured in Marietta Hit-and-Run Crash

By Grant Law Office on October 18, 2012

A 49-year-old man was injured in a Marietta car accident when a car struck his bicycle and drove away. According to a news report in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the hit-and-run accident occurred on southbound Canton Road north of Piedmont Road in Marietta. Officials say a dark compact car struck the cyclist from behind before leaving the scene of the crash. The victim of this bicycle accident has been listed in critical condition. The authorities are searching for a vehicle that may have damage to its front passenger-side fender, hood, and windshield.

It is illegal to leave the scene of an accident when someone has suffered an injury. Under Georgia Statute 40-6-270: “The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to or the death of any person or in damage to a vehicle which is driven or attended by any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of the accident or shall stop as close thereto as possible and forthwith return to the scene of the accident.”

Victims of hit-and-run accidents can pursue financial compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other related damages. A skilled bicycle accident attorney will stay abreast of the official investigation to make sure that the at-fault driver is held accountable for the crash. When the hit-and-run driver is not found, compensation may still be available through the uninsured motorist clause of the victim’s own auto insurance policy.
