Car Accidents in Georgia
Car crashes occur daily in the state of Georgia that have severe consequences on the lives of others involved. Unfortunately, we see many people hospitalized with broken bones, internal organ injuries, and even traumatic brain injuries as a result of traffic accidents.
There are several reasons why we continue to see accidents take place every day in Georgia. Leading factors in car crashes reported in our state include:
- Speeding: When drivers are traveling too fast for road conditions or during inclement weather conditions, they are at increased risk of losing control of their vehicles and crashing into others. Unfortunately, speeding accidents often result in more significant injuries for those involved.
- Impairment: countless accidents take place in Georgia as a result of drivers who are drunk or under the influence of drugs. Impairment can significantly impact the driver’s judgment and lead to serious accidents.
- Reckless driving actions: when drivers fail to yield to others, switch lanes recklessly, or follow other vehicles too closely, they run the risk of causing serious accidents.
