How To Properly Report a Hit and Run Accident in Atlanta

If you’ve been in a hit-and-run accident, it can be really hard to know what to do next. You want to make sure that the person who hit you is held accountable for their actions, but at the same time, you want to stay safe and make sure you don’t put yourself or others in danger.

Here are some tips for reporting a hit-and-run accident in Atlanta:

1. Call 911 immediately if anyone has been injured or if there is any chance that someone could be hurt as a result of the accident.

2. Take photos of the scene and of any damage to your car, including any damage from objects that may have fallen from other vehicles involved in the accident.

3. Write down all relevant information about the accident—including dates, times, location information (including street names), weather conditions (if applicable), vehicle information (license plate number, make/model), witness information (names and phone numbers), driver behavior (speed limit violations/signaling before turning), driver characteristics (age/race).

4. Report the accident as soon as possible by contacting your insurance agent directly or filing an online claim with your insurance company (if allowed by law)
