Can You Pursue a Lawsuit Against a Hit-and-Run Driver You Cannot Find?

If you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident, you may be wondering what to do next. After all, the last thing you want to do is to take on this process on your own—especially if the driver who hit you has fled the scene and left you with injuries that need medical attention.

But let’s say that you were unable to get any information about the vehicle or driver who hit you. If this happened in Atlanta or anywhere else in Georgia, can you still pursue legal action?

The answer is yes! You can pursue legal action against a hit-and-run driver even if they are not found by police or anyone else involved in investigating your case.

In fact, it may be possible for you to win compensation for damages even if the identity of the motorist is never known at all. This is because Georgia law requires all motorists to carry insurance coverage for their vehicles.

Even if someone drives away from an accident without reporting it to the police, their insurance company will still be required under state law to pay for damages caused by their driver’s actions (even if those actions resulted in no injuries). Click learn more to read our previous post.
