Car Accidents in Georgia
In major cities on our highways, car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Many individuals are involved in car accidents over their lifetimes within the state, whether minor or severe in nature. These accidents take on a variety of forms but rollovers are known for being some of the most severe. In one recent year, over 2% of car accidents were deemed rollover accidents. After a car accident, you will need to show that another party is at fault for the collision.
