Car Accident Injuries in Georgia
Car accidents can turn lives upside-down within a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of people are hurt in car accidents every year in Georgia. Though car accidents can happen virtually anywhere, highways are known for being some of the most common places for collisions.
In fact, in just one recent year, more than half of car accidents leading to injuries and fatalities took place on highways and other major thoroughfares. These collisions happen due to many different reasons, including:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Drowsy driving
The majority of accident victims walk away with minor injuries or bumps and bruises. But all too often, victims sustain serious injuries, causing them to spend weeks or even months recovering, missing out on time in the workplace, and paying out of pocket for expensive medical bills. In other words, your life could be turned upside-down in the blink of an eye due to a car accident.
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your wreck, you may be left with a variety of questions that only an Atlanta car accident attorney can help answer.
Because of this, it’s important to have the assistance of an attorney on your side moving forward.
For instance, you might wonder what types of evidence you need to prove fault, or which deadlines you may be required to meet moving forward. You’ll likely need to communicate with insurance companies and may want to know how to best communicate with adjusters.
