Car Accidents in Georgia
Being hurt in a car accident is a reality that hundreds of thousands of individuals face every year in Georgia due to the negligence of others. In just 2020 alone, in fact, over 125,000 people were injured in car accidents within the state. Though a car accident can take on many forms, rollovers are known for being some of the most severe accidents. In just one recent year, only about 2% of car accidents were deemed rollovers. This may seem like a small percentage, but it is imperative to note that these accidents tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. If you have been injured in a car accident and wonder what options you have, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
