Hit and Run in Henry County

The desire to pursue a personal injury claim after an accident is understandable. When it’s a hit-and-run though, that desire burns even hotter. You can’t sue a person if you can’t catch them. That’s just one reason why the law looks down so much on those who commit hit and run.

It’s also why those stories get put into the news quite often. Earlier this week, a hit and run accident happened in Henry County to a cyclist. She suffered injuries while cycling in Hampton one evening. The impact was hard enough that parts of the car were left at the scene. They seem to match a 1996-2000 green Honda Civic EX. Police are still searching for answers while the victim recovers.

Being the victim of a hit and run offers the opportunity to receive further damages if they are caught. Running away intentionally from an accident, even if the accident was unintentional, opens the perpetrator up to punitive damages. These are financial penalties added beyond the cost of the injuries as punishment for what they did. It’s the court’s way of making an example of someone.

If you’ve been injured in a hit and run, don’t give up hope. The police have many techniques for finding hit and run drivers. In the meantime, call our law offices for a consultation about your case. We’ll be able to help you set up the legal case necessary to pursue an injury claim as soon as they are caught. Call Stokes & Kopitsky today for more information.
