Car Accidents in Georgia
Each day, auto accidents in Georgia leave over 340 people injured. Quite often, these crashes can be attributed to drivers engaging in reckless, negligent, and malicious actions while operating their vehicles. When people are injured and accidents, they often suffer severe injuries that require medical care. Spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and even broken bones can force victims out of work for several weeks or even months. In some instances, people are left permanently disabled and can never return to work again.
Although many drivers are careful while traveling along Georgia roadways, we see a significant number of people hurt due to actions that others engage in while operating their vehicles. Some of the most common causes of crashes that we see include:
- Drivers who are speeding
- Failing to yell the right of way
- Drivers who pass through stop signs and run red lights
- Drivers who are distracted by using their phones and changing the radio
- Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
