Georgia teen seriously injured in car accident; arrest made

Most people are aware of there is a potential chance of being involved in an accident while driving. Those involved in an accident are required to remain at the scene. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials in Georgia say that a driver recently fled the scene of a car accident that injured a pedestrian.

Rescue workers responded to the scene during the early morning hours of a day in July. According to reports, a 19-year-old was discovered lying in the road. He was transported to the hospital and listed in serious condition.

Police believe that the teen was struck by a vehicle, and the driver of that vehicle left. However, an investigator allegedly discovered the identity of the driver and located the vehicle believed to have been involved in the days following the accident. The driver, also a 19-year-old male, is charged with causing serious injury by vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury. Additional charges are anticipated.

Even the treatment of minor injuries at a hospital can result in medical debt that will take years for a person to pay. Serious injuries as reportedly suffered in this Georgia car accident can be even more devastating. Additionally, victims who are unable to work may also experience a loss of wages, further complicating their financial situation. As a result, victims who were injured as a result of another's negligence have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against those believed to have been responsible. An attorney with experience with such cases can help victims fully understand this option and initiate legal proceedings, if appropriate.
