Helpful tips for handling a hit and run

A hit and run car accident can be a very traumatic experience. What do you do when the person responsible for your incident disappears? Can you do anything? Thankfully, there are a few things that you can do to possibly get help for your accident in the case of a hit and run.

A claim for a motor vehicle accident is a personal injury case. In short, to prove such cases, you must show that due to the negligent act of the accused party, you suffered certain losses or damages. Thankfully, this can still be proven even if you do not know who the negligent party is. To do this, there are a few steps you need to take. First, you should report the accident by calling the police. Be sure to note everything you can remember and collect information from witnesses, if possible. Once you document the report, you should seek medical attention. Even if your symptoms seem minor, it is best to have it documented in case that you later realize it was the catalyst of a major medical issue. By completing these two steps, you have set the groundwork for your case.

The next step would be to find a quality accident attorney to represent your case. With this being their specialty, they are more likely to be up-to-date on the Georgia codes concerning hit and run accidents and have some experience with similar cases. They will also have the needed resources to locate any possible witnesses or evidence that could lead to finding the individual who hit you. If the individual is not found, the attorney will be able to review your insurance policy to discover what claims are available to you.

In a hit and run accident, there are not many great options, but there are a few things you can do to try to make the best out of the situation. By following these tips, you may properly position yourself to get the compensation you deserve.
