Last updated Friday, February 24th, 2023
Atlanta, GA (February 23, 2023) – On the afternoon of Wednesday, February 22, a serious rear-end accident happened on a busy route near Atlanta.
Right before the Forest Parkway exit, there was an accident involving two automobiles and another vehicle on southbound I-75. According to early accounts, two vehicles crashed between the center and right lanes of the highway, forcing at least one driver to spin out.
The collision resulted in an hour-long closure of the highway. Both cars were removed from the scene due to the serious damage they had sustained.
Despite the fact that it was unclear how many victims were injured, EMTs and fire rescue units from Atlanta rushed to the scene to help and appeared to transfer at least one person to a local hospital.
However, the accident is still under investigation, and APD officers have provided no clarifying details.
Our thoughts now are with the injured victims and their families.
Atlanta Chain-Reaction Collisions
The most frequent kind of auto accident in Georgia and the rest of the nation, rear-end crashes result in a growing number of deaths and injuries every year. According to official figures, rear-end collisions, sometimes referred to as fender benders, comprise more than half of all automobile accidents in Georgia.
Even if the event happens more slowly, it may still cause significant physical injury or death. All of these possible fatal consequences for accident participants include fractured bones and spinal cord damage.
At least 10% of all road deaths occurred in rear-end crashes the previous year. No of the extent of your injuries or the circumstances surrounding the accident, it is imperative that you take immediate action to safeguard your legal rights.
It could take some time for you to get used to the physical restrictions you must live with as a result of your injury. No matter how severe your injuries are, you risk getting into financial difficulties because of unpaid medical costs and missed pay if you are forced to leave work. And experiencing a collision caused by the negligence of another motorist may have catastrophic mental and emotional effects.
Sadly, your health and well-being are not taken into account by the insurance company when making decisions or determining claim payments.
