High-Speed Collisions in Georgia
Compared to last year, there are more car accidents taking place across the state, and statistics show that speeding is the main culprit. Because there were fewer vehicles on the road in 2020, other drivers had more room to accelerate, which increased the number of deadly collisions. That year, 1,600 persons lost their lives on Georgia’s state roadways, and many of these deaths involved speeding motorists.
Most of us take driving for granted, and we can quickly underestimate how at risk we are behind the wheel. Nowadays, there are many potential distractions for drivers when they are operating a vehicle, and these distractions are making the road a more dangerous place for everyone. The number of car accidents in Georgia that were brought on by texting while driving, being distracted while driving, or operating a vehicle while intoxicated has increased, and serious auto accidents involving both drivers and passengers frequently result in fatalities or serious injuries.
Anyone harmed in a car accident should get quick medical attention. To ensure that your injuries are appropriately recorded, you must make an appointment with a doctor. The amount of time it takes for injury symptoms to manifest will vary tremendously, so you should get checked out even if you think you weren’t seriously hurt. The insurance company may argue that postponing medical attention means you were not significantly injured. They might be able to reduce the settlement claim amount you qualify for as a result.
