What Is a Hit and Run?

A hit-and-run is a type of accident where the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident leaves the scene without exchanging any information with other drivers or pedestrians involved in the event. This type of accident may be intentional or unintentional, and it can lead to severe injuries or even death if the victim has not been seen by medical professionals after a hit-and-run incident.

Hit-and-run accidents are rare, but they do happen in Atlanta and throughout the country. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were about 42,915 car accident related deaths in 2021.

That’s more than a 10.5% increase from the previous year! If you’ve been involved in a hit-and-run accident, you should call 911 immediately so that law enforcement officials can help you out and investigate the incident.

You should also contact your insurance company as soon as possible so that they can start helping you resolve any financial issues related to your accident, such as payment for repairs or medical bills incurred from being hit by someone who did not stop at all after causing injuries or death through their negligence.
