Georgia Car Accidents and Your Injuries
The number of injuries and deaths that occur on Georgia roads is sobering. The Georgia Department of Transportation reports that about 2,500 people are injured and 31 people are killed in motor vehicle accidents across the state every week.
What’s even more distressing is that the number of auto collisions is increasing. In fact, GDOT predicts that each Georgian will be involved in a car crash roughly every 10 years.
Most Georgia wrecks involve some form of irresponsible behavior on the part of the driver. That could include negligence such as:
- Drunk driving;
- Reckless driving;
- Distracted driving;
- Running a stop sign or red light;
- Failure to yield in left-hand turns;
- Failure to use turn signals;
- Improper lane change;
- Failure to maintain control of the vehicle in sharp curves;
- “Road rage.”
While driver error frequently plays a role in Georgia car accidents, the Accident & Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates are skilled at identifying other contributing factors as well.
For example, defective car parts may lead to claims against the auto product’s engineers and manufacturers. Poorly maintained roads could give rise to legal claims against the property owner or agency responsible for keeping them safe. Flawed road design may merit action against state government entities. That’s why it is important to contact our auto accident lawyers as soon as possible after your accident so that we can make sure no detail is overlooked when handling your case.
The Importance of Acting Fast
Most Georgia accident victims fail to realize the urgency of collecting all of the factual data as soon as possible. Evidence dissipates over time – tow yards may turn over their wrecked vehicle inventory quickly, witnesses will have a harder time remembering the facts months after the wreck, skid marks will fade – and you may have a foggy recollection of the accident, particularly if you were injured. The Accident & Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates have access to accident reconstruction experts who can provide proof of what really happened at the scene of the wreck.
We also consult with top medical experts and life care planners who can attest to the full extent of your injuries, disabilities, and the long-term challenges that you and your family may face as a result of the accident. We even work with economists who can calculate into present value the amount of all future economic losses if you are no longer able to earn a living or work at the same capacity that you did before your Georgia car accident.
Compensation in Georgia Car Accident Claims
Now we’ve come to the big question that every client wants to know: How much money can I get for my injuries?
As you can imagine, that’s not an easy answer. Every car accident is different, and that means that every outcome is unique as well. However, there are some legal principles that will be important in moving your accident claim forward, particularly when it comes to determining liability.
Your ability to collect damages may be limited based on whether you are partly at fault for the car accident. Georgia operates under a “modified comparative negligence” system which says that you are able to collect money only if you were injured in an accident and deemed less than 50 percent responsible for the wreck. If you are more than 50 percent responsible, you collect nothing. That’s why it’s important to talk with us before you give a statement to the insurance company – you might admit fault and then a later investigation could prove you wrong!
Once liability has been established, Georgia car accident victims are generally entitled to recover a variety of damages, including:
- Medical bills;
- Rehabilitation expenses;
- Lost wages and productivity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Property damage to the vehicle;
- Rental car reimbursement;
- Costs of assistive devices like wheelchairs or walkers;
- Travel expenses for doctor’s appointments;
- Compensation for scars and disfigurement;
- Punitive damages (in certain circumstances).
