There is nothing more gut-wrenching than watching the person who just collided with your car speed away without even bothering to check if you were injured. That kind of carelessness and cruelty can have a severe impact on your life, especially if you are already in a difficult financial situation. Many of us live paycheck to paycheck, and when we are involved in an accident, we rely on the insurance provider of the at-fault driver to pay for our medical bills, time away from work, and damage done to our vehicle. So, what do you do when said at-fault driver flees the accident?

Man Killed in Atlanta Hit-and-Run Crash

By Grant Law Office on May 12, 2015

A 40-year-old father of two was recently killed in an Atlanta hit-and-run car accident and his family members are asking for help in finding the driver responsible for his death. According to a WSB-TV news report, the fatal car wreck occurred near the intersection of Campbellton and Fairburn Road in Atlanta. Officials say the man was crossing the road when a white Chevy Equinox SUV struck him. His family has returned to the crash site to pass out fliers and ask for help in finding a white SUV with extensive front-end damage and a missing driver side-view mirror.

It is our moral and legal responsibility as Georgia drivers to remain at a crash site when someone has been injured or killed. Under Georgia Statute 40-6-270, the driver of a vehicle involved in a crash that results in injury, death of any person or damage to the other vehicle must immediately stop at the scene or as close as possible.

Three Injured after Car Crashes into Atlanta Nightclub

By Grant Law Office on April 24, 2013

Three pedestrians were struck by a car outside an Atlanta nightclub involving a driver who may have been under the influence. CBS Atlanta reports that the driving under the influence (DUI) accident occurred outside the Asylum nightclub on Flat Shoals Avenue in Atlanta. Officials say the car left the roadway and crashed into the nightclub. One of the pedestrians was pinned against the building and two of the three victims were hospitalized after the crash. The driver fled the scene of the accident on foot and was arrested about a block away. He faces DUI and hit-and-run charges.

Drugs and alcohol can impair your motor functions and delay your reaction time. Motorists who are impaired are much more likely to leave the roadway, drift from their lane of traffic, or make a reckless decision. Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is also illegal.

By Grant Law Office on February 21, 2013

A 24-year-old woman and her four-year-old daughter were killed in a Georgia car accident involving a hit-and-run driver.

It is against Georgia law to leave the scene of an accident when someone has been injured or killed. According to 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 … 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 and shall exchange information, contact the authorities, and offer assistance.”
