Car Accidents in Georgia
Hundreds of thousands of individuals are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the country each year due to the negligence of other drivers. Many victims endure spinal cord injuries, burns, fractures, and other devastating impairments that require medical treatment and weeks to recover. Although we can be careful while driving, we cannot prevent others from engaging in reckless actions. Some of the leading causes of collisions in Georgia are:
- Motorists who are reckless
- Motorists who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Malfunctioning parts/defective vehicles
- Motorists who disregard traffic control devices
- Motorists who fail to yield the right of way
- Being distracted while operating a vehicle
- Inclement weather
If you have been injured in a car accident, you may spend time in the hospital or away from work. This can impact your life in both physical and financial ways. In some cases, victims can reach out to a car accident attorney in Atlanta to explore legal options available for them.
