Georgia Distracted Driving Crashes
Even though it falls under the category of reckless driving, Georgia has specific laws regarding distracted driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving results in approximately 515,000 injuries and at least 6,000 deaths annually. The risk of causing a severe accident is significantly higher when a driver is not paying attention to the road.
Many of us take driving for granted and underestimate the risks we face on the road. With many potential distractions for drivers today, such as texting, being distracted, or driving under the influence, the road has become a more dangerous place for all. The number of car accidents in Georgia caused by these distractions has increased, and these accidents often result in serious injuries or fatalities for both drivers and passengers.
It is important for anyone who has been harmed in a car accident to seek immediate medical attention. To ensure that your injuries are properly documented, it is important to schedule an appointment with a doctor. Symptoms of injuries can take time to appear, so it is important to get checked out even if you do not think you have been seriously injured. Insurance companies may argue that delaying medical attention means that you were not significantly injured, which can reduce the amount of settlement you are eligible for.
