Deadly Car Accidents in Georgia
Georgia established a hands-free law that forbids using cell phones or other mobile devices while driving, which resulted in a promising decline in road fatalities in prior years. Nevertheless, 2020 saw an unusual surge in traffic fatalities in Georgia. For the first time in four years, there were less than 1,000 automobile fatalities in a calendar year in 2018, when fatal accidents decreased by 6% from the year before.
When someone dies as a result of negligence, criminal behavior, or defective machinery, it is known as wrongful death. Any person or entity involved in the incident can be held accountable for wrongful death, regardless of whether they acted intentionally or carelessly. The deceased’s estate or surviving family members may subsequently initiate a lawsuit to recover damages from the person or entity that caused their death. Even though money cannot take away the hurt of such a loss, civil law is the sole means by which to value the life of the deceased, make up for the loss of the surviving, and hold the person or entity accountable.
