Hit-and-run accidents account for nearly 700,000 traffic accidents in the United States every year. One reason cars may not stop after an accident is that the driver may be driving illegally without car insurance. Even if the other driver who hit you is not found, you can still file a Georgia personal injury claim with Sheryl Burke, a respected personal injury attorney, to recover compensation. 

In addition to contacting an attorney, there are other steps you should take following a hit-and-run car accident. 
  • Call the Police – Whether you are present during the accident or discover you car has been hit later, it is important to contact law enforcement and to keep copies of the police reports. 
  • Call Your Insurance Company – Let your car insurance company know that you have been the victim of a hit and run, but do not share any other information than what is necessary. 
  • Gather Information – Get the contact information and statements of any eye witnesses; ask local businesses for copies of surveillance footage, if available, at the scene of the accident.  

Being the victim of a hit-and-run car accident can be scary and confusing. Let a Georgia personal injury attorney like Sheryl Burke help you through the process of filing a claim while you work to recover from any injury or damages.
