Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Georgia
Tailgating, cutting off other drivers, weaving in and out of traffic, and purposefully blocking other drivers are all examples of aggressive driving. Driving aggressively is more prevalent than you would think. According to recent research, nearly 80% of all drivers acknowledged engaging in aggressive driving at least once in the previous year.
Some out-of-pocket costs you incurred as a result of the accident may also be included in damages for your personal injuries. In Georgia, financial compensation for personal injuries may be utilized to cover lost future earning potential, medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and missing revenue. Insurance may periodically pay for accidental damages, but you’ll need legal representation to get the most money for your claim.
Most people are aware of the expenses typically incurred when involved in a serious auto accident. But when one considers the amount of money lost due to missed work and the escalating costs of medical care, additional visits, and vehicle maintenance, the situation is made much worse. According to Georgia law, someone else may be required to cover your medical expenses and car repair costs if the car accident was not your fault.
