Penalties for a Hit and Run in Georgia
It is a serious criminal offense to leave the scene of an accident that
has resulted in property damage, injury or death.
Depending on the particular situation, a defendant may face these penalties:
Penalties will only increase if another driver, passenger, pedestrian or
bicyclist sustained serious injury or lost their life due to the accident.
When Suspected DUI is Involved in Your Case
It is often assumed that
drunk driving is the underlying cause of a hit and run. However, there are many reasons
a person could leave the scene that are not related to hit and run.
One of the most common reasons for leaving an accident scene is simple:
fear. A driver could have taken actions while suffering from the stress
of the collision that they would not have done in other situations.
It is well worth your while to speak with an attorney before you make any
decisions. If you are under investigation in a hit and run, refrain from
answering questions from investigators. You need a
criminal attorney at your side protecting your rights throughout this process. Whether you
are innocent or you have some responsibility in the case, the quality
of your defense lawyer is the most important issue.
