Atlanta, GA (February 4, 2023) – On Saturday evening, a serious rear-end collision occurred on a major roadway outside Atlanta.
On southbound I-75, there was a collision involving two vehicles just before the Canton Road exit around 8:45 p.m. According to initial reports, two cars collided between the center and right lanes of the highway, causing at least one driver to spin out.
The crash caused the route to be closed for an hour. Both vehicles were removed from the site owing to their extensive damage.
Despite the lack of information on the number of wounded people, EMTs and fire rescue units from Atlanta raced to the area and seemed to transport at least one victim to a nearby hospital.
However, the collision is still under investigation, and APD authorities have not offered any clarifying information.
Our thoughts are now with the wounded victims and their families.
Serious Vehicle Collisions in Atlanta
The most common kind of vehicle accident in Georgia and the rest of the country, rear-end collisions, cause an increasing number of fatalities and injuries each year. Official statistics indicate that rear-end collisions, sometimes known as “fender benders,” account for more than half of all automotive accidents in Georgia.
Even if an accident occurs at a slower pace, it may still result in substantial bodily harm. Bone fractures and spinal cord injuries are all serious outcomes that might result from an accident.
The prior year, rear-end collisions accounted for at least 10% of all road fatalities. Regardless of the severity of your injuries or the circumstances surrounding the accident, you must move immediately to protect your legal rights.
As a consequence of your injury, it may take you some time to adjust to the physical constraints you must live with. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, you run the danger of falling into financial hardship due to unpaid medical expenses and lost wages if you are forced to quit work. And being involved in a crash caused by another driver’s carelessness may have devastating mental and emotional ramifications.
Unfortunately, the insurance company does not consider your health when making choices or deciding on claim payouts. In other words, you may not get the compensation you genuinely deserve after an accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a traffic accident, it is crucial that you contact an Atlanta car accident attorney immediately.
