Georgia Distracted Driving Accidents
Roadway fatalities have increased recently as a result of distracted driving, and this increasingly common behavior comes with serious risks. Georgia established a hands-free law making it illegal to use mobile devices while driving, which resulted in a reduction in road fatalities. Yet, Georgia had a startling increase in road fatalities in 2020. For the first time in four years, there were less than 1,000 auto deaths in a calendar year in 2018, when fatal accidents decreased by 6% from the year before. Driver distraction is very dangerous, and those at fault for a serious crash should be held accountable.
Automobile accident victims endure excruciating pain, accrue a mountain of medical bills, and lose money because they cannot return to work. In an effort to protect their own bottom line, the insurance company will undoubtedly offer the smallest settlement they can, which will only make the difficult and drawn-out process of rehabilitation worse. Accidental car accidents can occur at any time. In Georgia, there are several traffic accidents every day, and you could become instantly seriously injured.
You should get medical attention as soon as you can if you intend to file a claim for compensation after sustaining injuries in an auto accident. Since many injuries related to auto accidents take longer to materialize, the symptoms of some injuries might not show up for many days or even weeks after the initial impact. If you do not receive treatment for your injuries, insurance companies may try to argue that they are not serious and will not give you the money you need and deserve.
As opposed to going up against the insurance company alone, you should consider hiring an Atlanta auto accident attorney to defend you. This will dramatically increase your chances of winning a personal injury claim. Monge & Associates will make every effort to ensure that you receive the financial assistance and medical attention necessary for a full recovery.
