Holding negligent drivers accountable in Columbus

Driving Uninsured Happens More Than You Think

According to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, 82% of uninsured drivers cannot afford insurance. So what happens when one of those drivers injures you or your loved one?

Pursuing compensation

There are multiple strategies our attorneys may use when seeking compensation on your behalf. When referring to “uninsured” drivers, we also include “underinsured” drivers or those who are insured at the legal minimum amount. When a driver doesn’t have enough coverage to fairly accommodate the victims, Montlick investigates other methods of compensation. Methods could include:

  • A claim on your own insurance policy’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage
  • Other insurance policies that could also cover the accident
  • A court order instructing the other driver to pay you directly
  • A lien on the other driver’s house, car, or other property will remain until you’re paid


What you can do to protect yourself before an accident

Our attorneys highly recommend adding UMI (uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage) and/or Medical Payments Coverage (MedPay) to your own car insurance policy. In the event you’re hurt by an uninsured driver, or even injured in a hit-and-run accident, this additional coverage could significantly impact your recovery.

While the criminal prosecution of a hit-and-run driver who hurt you might provide some relief for the victims, the civil justice system provides the primary venue for compensation. A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against a driver who fails to remain at the scene of an accident might merit compensation for:

  • Property loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

What if the at-fault driver leaves and can't be located?

Although evidence gathered from the law enforcement investigation, witness observations, surveillance cameras, and other sources might facilitate a lawsuit against the at-fault party, many hit and run drivers are never located. We’ll explore the potential liability of third parties that might share fault for causing crash-related injuries. Potential third party defendants include:

  • Drivers of a vehicle not directly involved in the impact
    Companies that manufacture cars, vehicle parts, and auto systems
  • Car owners who lend their vehicles to drivers they should know have poor driving records
  • Businesses that employ drivers involved in crashes within the scope of their employment

If no responsible third party exists, hit and run victims still might have a right to pursue a claim if they have uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist coverage.

Knowing what to do after an accident

Montlick Can Help

When you or a loved one has been injured by a reckless, uninsured driver, we’re here for you.

Free Consultation

The laws of Georgia require a driver involved in a collision that causes injury or a fatality to remain at or near the accident scene. The parties must exchange:

  • Contact information
  • Vehicle registration numbers
  • Driver’s license information if requested by the other driver or an occupant of either vehicle

Motorists who disregard their legal duties by failing to remain at the accident site can face criminal prosecution. The consequences of a misdemeanor conviction of hit and run can result in:

  • A fine up to $1000
  • A maximum one-year term in jail
  • The potential loss or limitation of driving privileges
  • Imprisonment of one to five years if charged with felony hit and run
Frequently Asked Questions

Get Answers When You Need Them

What Are Georgia Deadlines for Filing Car Accident Insurance Claims & Lawsuits?
For personal injury claims resulting from a car accident, the statute of limitations in Georgia is usually two years from the date of the accident. This means you would have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible party/parties. Failure to file within this time frame could result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries. The statutes of limitations can vary depending on the jurisdiction of the accident.
