Georgia law states that when involved in an accident, all parties involved are supposed to stop as soon as possible and exchange driver’s license and insurance information. Failure to do so is a criminal offense in Georgia and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending upon the circumstances.
If you are involved in a hit-and-run collision, it can be traumatic. Even more traumatic is watching the other driver flee the scene. The best thing that you can do if this occurs is to immediately contact the police. Provide them with any information you can remember about the vehicle, including make, model, and color. This will help with the investigation and help police locate the person responsible so you can be compensated.
