How to Get Compensation after a Hit and Run Accident in Georgia
There are steps you can take after the accident to help an attorney get compensation for you.
- Call the police and make a report. Ask for a copy of the report or get one as soon as it becomes available.
- Take photographs of your car and the scene around the accident.
- Get the names of any witnesses to the accident.
- Report the incident to your insurance agent.
While the police are looking for the other driver, you can speak with the Don Turner Legal Team about your next steps. If law enforcement locates the other driver, we may be able to help you get compensation that your insurance does not cover using the evidence you’ve collected. This can include lost wages, payment of medical bills and other damages related to the accident or your injuries.
