Atlanta Hit & Run Car Accident Lawyer

Injured in a Hit and Run? Call Us to Learn More About Your Rights.

Being involved in a car accident is frightening enough, but the aftermath of a collision can be even more stressful if the other driver flees the scene. In Georgia, it is a crime to leave the scene of an accident without exchanging information or rendering aid, especially when the accident results in serious personal injury or death, yet hit and run accidents continue to happen at an alarming rate. Many times, this is because the at-fault driver is under the influence or lacks adequate insurance.

What You Should Do After a Hit and Run Accident

If you have been involved in a hit and run accident, you may be wondering “What now?” After calling the police and filing a report, the next step you should take is to contact an Atlanta car accident attorney at Pratt Clay. Our firm has the resources to investigate your case and make every possible effort to hold the responsible driver accountable. If this is not possible, we may then be able to assist you in recovering compensation through an uninsured motorist claim.

After a hit and run accident, you should also take the following steps:

  • Write down as much as you can remember about the other vehicle
  • Call the police immediately, or 911 if you are injured, and file a report
  • Get the names and contact information of anyone who witnessed the crash
  • Take pictures of the scene, as well as any injuries you have suffered
  • Seek medical attention, even if your injuries do not appear to be serious
  • Report the details of the car accident to your insurance company

Seeking Compensation Through an Uninsured Motorist Claim

If you are unable to identify the driver that hit you, you may still be able to recover compensation by filing a claim with your own insurance company. As long as you have uninsured motorist (UM) coverage on your automobile insurance policy, you should be able to recover compensation for the cost of your medical treatment, vehicle repairs, and lost wages.

In Georgia, you are not required to carry uninsured motorist coverage; however, your insurance company is required to offer it. If you are unsure about whether or not you are protected by uninsured motorist coverage, please contact an Atlanta car accident lawyer at Pratt Clay. We can help you evaluate your policy and determine your options.
