It can be an emotional and overwhelming time to be in an auto accident in Georgia, especially when the other driver takes off without seeing if you are okay or exchanging information with you. After you have contacted the police and taken care of your injuries, you need to call an experienced hit-and-run accident attorney in Gwinnett County.
A skilled lawyer can answer your questions surrounding the hit-and-run crash, help you recover compensation for your injuries and damages, and help you through this difficult time. Especially if serious or fatal injuries took place in the crash, you need an attorney on your side to make sure you can recover financially while you are trying to heal both emotionally and physically.
Unfortunately, hit-and-run accidents in Georgia are occurring far too often. Recently, a fatal hit-and-run crash in Gwinnett County took place that claimed the life of a mother of young children. According to police, a family was traveling in their SUV on Interstate 85 when a semi truck hit them and caused the SUV to spin out of control. Sadly, the woman was ejected and killed, and the man and two children also in the SUV were injured. After the large truck hit the SUV, the truck driver continued down the road. Fortunately, police were able to find the truck driver and question him about the hit-and-run.
For many victims of hit-and-run accidents, the other driver is never found—leaving victims with expensive medical bills and property damages. In either event, victims of hit-and-run crashes need to know their legal options for obtaining as much compensation as possible.
