Georgia Distracted Driving Crashes
Even though it’s frequently viewed as just another form of irresponsible driving, Georgia has its own laws regulating distracted driving. The NHTSA estimates that distracted driving causes at least 6,000 fatalities and 515,000 injuries annually. Drivers run the risk of triggering a fatal collision when they are not paying attention to the road.
The majority of individuals are aware of the common costs associated with being in a serious auto accident. The problem is made even worse when one takes into account the amount of money lost due to missing work, as well as the rising costs of medical care, additional visits, and vehicle upkeep. In Georgia, if the car accident was not your fault, someone else can be compelled to pay for your medical bills and auto repair costs.
Your daily activities may already be impacted by the severity of your injuries, and you may not completely understand how claims are processed or what to anticipate as your case progresses. Given the circumstances, it is reasonable to assume that you will run into challenges for which you are not entirely prepared. Insurance firms routinely deal with these situations, and they might take advantage of your inexperience. The insurer will utilize their extensive knowledge to make you an offer for your claim that is as low as possible in order to protect their own interests.
