However, leaving the scene of an accident is against the law in Georgia, and you could be facing hit and run charges.

How Long Do You Have to Report a Hit-and-run in Georgia?

Generally, in Georgia, you have up to two years from the date of the accident to report a lawsuit for liability or injuries. However, if you suffered any property damage or need car repairs, you have four years from the date of the accident to file a report.

Legal Consequences of a Hit-and-Run in Georgia

There are plenty of reasons why a person might fail to stop after an accident. They may not have immediately realized that they hit someone, or fear and anxiety could have prevented them from stopping. The fact remains that leaving the scene of an accident can result in misdemeanor or felony charges depending on the circumstances of the situation.

Understanding Hit and Run Penalties in Georgia

A hit and run conviction can result in:

  • Up to one year in jail for a misdemeanor charge
  • Up to five years in prison for a felony charge
  • Fines
  • Loss of your driver’s license

In addition to criminal penalties and driver’s license suspension, a criminal conviction can have a lasting impact on your life. If your career requires a professional license, your job could be in jeopardy. It is important to hire an experienced Georgia criminal defense attorney who can fight for you and help minimize the impact of this situation.
