Why Do People Flee the Scene After Car Accidents in Georgia?

  • They do not own the vehicle in which they are traveling
  • They have prior criminal convictions
  • They have an active warrant for their arrest
  • They were drunk
  • They were under the influence of drugs
  • They were illegally carrying a controlled substance
  • They do not want to pay for the damage they caused

Recovering Compensation After a Hit and Run Accident in Georgia

Recovering Compensation After a Hit and Run Accident in Georgia

There are two main ways injured Atlanta residents may fight for damages after a hit-and-run accident. They are:

Filing a Personal Injury Claim Against the Other Driver

When the authorities identify and catch the driver who chose to leave the scene of the crash, victims may file personal injury lawsuits against them. Those who succeed in this endeavor can typically claim compensation for their:

  • Medical bills
  • Ongoing care costs
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In some cases, they may also be able to recover punitive damages.

Filing an Uninsured Motorist Claim with Their Insurance Company

When the police cannot identify or catch the hit and run driver, Atlantans may still claim compensation for their medical costs and other expenses. They can do so by filing an uninsured motorist claim with their insurance company.

This process is generally much more straightforward than filing a lawsuit against another person. However, it is not unusual for insurers to deny or delay claims without having a valid reason for doing so. As such, people who wish to go down this road should always hire a lawyer to help them along the way.

Whether you need an attorney to help you file a lawsuit or work through an uninsured motorist claim, you can always count on the team at Hasner Law PC. We have the experience and skills required to handle any case. Reach out to us today to learn more about how we can assist you.
