After a Hit and Run Accident

Georgia law requires anyone involved in a collision to:

  • Stop or immediately return to the accident scene
  • Render reasonable aid and assistance if necessary
  • Call for medical help if necessary
  • Provide identification and contact information

Unfortunately, there are motorists who speed off from an accident and refuse to be held responsible for any damage that they have done. Often they leave the scene of the accident because they have another serious violation to hide, such as driving under the influence or with an expired license.

These situations can leave a victim at a loss for what to do next. After a hit and run accident, you should:

  • Call the police to report the accident and then seek immediate medical attention
  • Try to take note of any identifiable characteristics of the at-fault driver, including the make and model of the vehicle and the plate number
  • Take note of as many details about the accident as you can remember
  • Gather the contact information from any witnesses

Finally, you should immediately contact our experienced Savannah hit and run accident lawyers. We will work directly with the insurance company to ensure your claim is complete and accurate so that you can recover the compensation you need.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

The first thing our team will do after your initial free consultation will be to investigate every detail of your accident and try to identify who was responsible for the accident. Unfortunately, the at-fault party is most often never identified.

In these situations, we will work directly with your insurance company to negotiate the maximum compensation you deserve.

Because Georgia uses a fault-based system for handling insurance claims, an injury victim will typically have to work through the at-fault driver’s insurance company to recover compensation for any damages resulting from an accident.

However, because the at-fault driver cannot be identified in a hit and run accident, a victim will be required to work through his or her own insurance company if the victim has uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Although this type of insurance coverage is not required in Georgia, it is extremely beneficial in these types of situations.

It is important to note that although you will be dealing with your own insurance company, it can still be very difficult to recover the full compensation you deserve. That is why having a lawyer with experience handling insurance claims is extremely beneficial.

Our Savannah hit and run accident lawyers have decades of experience dealing directly with insurance companies on behalf of injury victims. We are skilled negotiators who are dedicated to fighting for your best interests and the compensation you need so that you can focus solely on your recovery.
