Highway Car Accidents in Atlanta
State authorities and traffic monitors say that Georgia has claimed an increasing number of serious accidents each year. In fact, the Peach State has seen an average of around 70 to 75 automobile accidents every hour during the last few years. Moreover, these accidents may have catastrophic consequences at high-traffic intersections, crowded highways, and interstates.
Sadly, over 1.5 million accidents occur annually due to irresponsible driving in the United States. Despite the fact that careless motorists or reckless drivers cause the lion’s share of these crashes, it is the victims who must cope with devastating consequences in the aftermath. Needless to say, it is typical for victims to have feelings of powerlessness and confusion, especially those who have suffered serious injuries and tragic, long-term effects on their physical or mental health.
