If The Driver Was Later Caught
If the driver who caused the accident was later found, the case will be handled in a similar manner to any other car accident case. The biggest difference is that by leaving the scene of the accident, the driver has acknowledged negligence and even committed a crime in Georgia. Juries are not sympathetic to hit-and-run drivers; we will use that fact to our advantage. If our opponent is not willing to offer a fair settlement, we will take the case to trial in front of a jury and ask the jury to provide the compensation you deserve.
If The Driver Was Not Caught
If the driver who caused the accident was never found, you may think that you do not have any options to get compensation. In reality, you do have options, and our experience means we know what they are.
In hit-and-run accident cases, the most common option is to seek compensation from the victim’s own insurance policy, filing an uninsured motorist claim. This can be a challenging matter, particularly if the hit-and-run accident involved a driver running the victim off the road and there was no collision between vehicles. We are ready to take on any challenge.
