Options for Pursuing Compensation in a Lawrenceville Hit and Run Collision
Your options for seeking justice and compensation in your Lawrenceville hit and run crash will depend greatly on several factors, including:
- Whether we know the identity of the at-fault driver
- Whether the at-fault driver has the required auto liability insurance
- Whether you have uninsured motorist coverage
It is not unusual for an at-fault driver to leave the crash scene on I-85, Georgia 316, Stone Mountain Freeway, Scenic Highway, or any other road in the area. There are many reasons they might leave, including drinking or drug use, having warrants for arrest, being uninsured, and more.
Why they left the scene does not matter as much as whether the police can identify them. This might be possible through eyewitness statements, a tag number, a video from a nearby business, or other evidence. If we identify the at-fault driver’s name, we notify the police and begin to pursue a case against them.
When we know who caused your crash, we can file an insurance claim or lawsuit against them to seek appropriate compensation.

Damages Recoverable in a Lawrenceville Hit and Run Insurance Claim or Lawsuit
When you file an insurance claim or lawsuit against an at-fault driver, you can seek compensation to pay for your related expenses and losses. We identify these recoverable damages and negotiate for a fair settlement. If we need to file an uninsured motorist claim, we can seek the same types of damages up to the policy maximum.
The recoverable damages in hit and run crashes differ but could include:
- Medical treatment and care
- Future expenses and care needs
- Income losses while out of work
- Diminished earning capacity
- Vehicle repair or replacement
- Miscellaneous related expenses
- Pain and suffering
Wrongful Death in Georgia

Our team can discuss your legal options with your family during a free case assessment today.

Taking Legal Action in a Lawrenceville Hit and Run Accident Case
When we know the identity of the at-fault driver, we aggressively pursue justice for our clients. We present strong support to show they caused the accident and demand fair compensation from their insurer. O.C.G.A. § 33-6-34 protects our clients’ rights to an appropriate payout. We do not have to accept a settlement agreement that does not give our clients the money they need. We can sue instead.
We might need to sue the at-fault driver who left the scene for numerous reasons. Our attorneys will recommend this action when we believe it would benefit our client. In general, we have up to two years to file a personal injury lawsuit per O.C.G.A § 9-3-33. There are exceptions, though. We can determine your deadline when we discuss your case in detail.
When we file an uninsured motorist claim for our clients, we must present strong evidence and demand fair compensation. However, our negotiations are with our client’s own insurer. Despite this, we still need to protect the client’s rights and ensure the adjuster respects their best interests. You do not want to try to manage this process alone. Let our team help. We know how this process goes and what needs to be done.
