Being in a car accident is a terrifying experience no matter what the cause. In the state of Georgia, anyone involved in an accident must carry out certain procedures before leaving the scene. If the accident is serious, you are obligated to stay at the scene, contact emergency services and aid the injured. If both parties are not injured, you must exchange your insurance and registration information. In addition, a police report should be filed. If these actions are not taken, you can be arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, also known as a hit and run.
