Rear-End Collisions in Georgia
Rear-end collisions continue to be the most frequent kind of accident in Georgia and the rest of the country, resulting in an increasing number of fatalities and injuries each year. According to state statistics, more than half of all automotive accidents in Georgia are rear-end crashes, sometimes known as fender benders, per officials throughout the state.
Even if the event occurs at a slower pace, catastrophic physical harm or death may still follow. All of these, in addition to bone fractures and spinal cord injuries, are potentially fatal outcomes for accident victims.
In the preceding year, at least 10% of all road fatalities were caused by rear-end collisions. Regardless of the severity of your injuries or the reason for the accident, you must act swiftly to protect your legal rights.
Initially, it may be difficult to adjust to the physical restrictions imposed by an injury. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, you may suffer financial troubles if you are unable to work due to unpaid medical bills and lost wages. And, to say the least, the mental and emotional consequences of being involved in a car accident caused by another driver’s recklessness may be devastating.
