"Don't run from a hit-and-run," says Alpharetta, GA. traffic attorney Scott Miller.
A hit-and-run in the state of Georgia happens when you leave the scene of an accident without giving the owner of the vehicle or the property damaged your proper contact information. If your vehicle accidentally bumped another vehicle in the parking lot, you are required to attempt to find the owner of the damaged vehicle. If you are unable to find the owner, you must leave your contact information so that the owner of the other vehicle can get in touch with you.
This hit and run is a criminal misdemeanor for which you can be arrested for.
If you are involved in an accident, you are required to render assistance to any injured party. You're required to remain at the scene of the accident until the law-enforcement officers arrive. If you fail to offer assistance to an injured party and leave the scene of an accident you can be charged with hit-and-run.
If you have questions about the above, or if you have been charged with hit and run, contact the hit-and-run traffic defense attorney Scott Miller in Alpharetta, Georgia for a free consultation. 770-408-1001
