Georgia Hit and Run Laws
Like many states, after an accident in Georgia you are required to report it to local law enforcement if someone has been injured or killed or there is significant property damage.
Motorists in Georgia are required to:
- Report vehicle accidents resulting in injury or property damage to law enforcement.
- Provide contact information after an accident, including full name, residential address, license plate number, driver’s license number and care insurance information.
- Provide immediate assistance to injured parties by calling 911 promptly.
If you fail to report an accident, or you flee the scene of an accident without providing key information, you are breaking the law.
