Hit and run accidents are no joke. They show cowardice on the part of the responsible party. They also make things very difficult for police. Worst of all is that the victim may have no recourse to pay for their medical bills after an accident.
Two hit and run accidents happened on the same road recently in Atlanta. One person was waiting patiently at a bus stop for MARTA. An “SUV-like vehicle” ran up the curb and struck the victim. The vehicle was found abandoned about four miles later. The accident happened on Old National Highway.
The other accident happened near Old Jolly Road. That driver hit a pedestrian and then abandoned the vehicle. The owner reported the van was missing, so it could have been a stolen vehicle. Both victims were struck fatally.
If you are hit by a hit and run driver, you may still be eligible for compensation. There are special funds for people involved in traumatic accidents that you may be able to request money from, if you know how to file for it. A personal injury lawyer can help you with this.
