Woman struck in hit-and-run accident in northwest Georgia

Most victims of motor vehicle accidents are on the road in a vehicle of their own. Although some car crashes are fatal, people in cars have the protection of the vehicle's frame in the case of a collision. The same is not true for motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

A female pedestrian was struck and seriously injured in an accident near Teloga that involves criminal charges against the driver of the vehicle. The victim was run down near Highway 337 in Chattooga County. The driver then left the scene of the accident, although the sheriff soon tracked down the vehicle and arrested him.

The 50-year-old Trion man has been charged with driving under the influence as well as serious injury by vehicle and failure to report an accident. Although it may be the first instinct of a driver in an accident to flee, it always makes the consequences more complicated and often brings higher penalties in criminal court.

Civil court is where damage and injuries done by drivers or other people who acted irresponsibly on the road or in other public areas. Victims of car accidents and other incidents in which someone else has liability have the right to seek the financial damages they need to recover. This may include reimbursement for medical expenses and compensation for pain and emotional distress suffered after the incident.

Consider an attorney if you or a family member has been injured in a collision with a car, truck or bus. Legal representation is often the best step that people can take in the initial time after an unexpected accident.
