Hit and Run Car Accidents

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Hit and Run Car Accidents

A “hit-and-run” accident is typically defined as a car accident in which the driver intentionally leaves the scene without providing contact information or stopping to help someone who was injured in the accident, but also includes hit-and-run pedestrian, motorcycle, or bicycle accidents. If you’ve been involved in a hit-and-run accident in Georgia, contact an Atlanta hit and run accident lawyer at Gilormo Injury Law for help with your insurance and legal claims.

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.

What Happens If You Can’t Find the Driver After a Hit and Run Accident

We wish this was never the case, but sometimes the negligent driver who fled the scene is never located or identified. Witnesses and the surge of dashboard cameras certainly help increase your odds, but especially in a large metropolitan area like Atlanta, police are not always successful in finding the driver.
