Distracted Driving Accidents in Georgia
In Georgia, 3% of fatal car accidents are the result of distracted driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distraction was a factor in at least 40 fatal car accidents in 2019 and 60 the year before. Of the 40 fatal collisions that happened in 2019, occurred outside of intersections in over 80% of the cases. Those injured in a crash involving a distracted driver should contact an attorney right away to start their case.
Car accident victims experience acute agony, a pile of medical debt, and missed earnings from being unable to work. The road to recovery can be challenging and drawn out. Even worse, it is clear that the insurance company is offering ridiculously low prices in an effort to get away with anything. Auto accidents can happen quickly. Georgia sees a lot of traffic collisions every day. It occasionally occurs when we look away or don’t use the brakes quickly enough.
If you choose to pursue a claim for compensation after suffering injuries in a car accident, you should get checked by a medical professional as soon as you can. The symptoms of some injuries may not appear for many days or even weeks after a collision since many injuries take longer to develop. Insurance companies may try to claim that your injuries are not serious if you failed to get medical care quickly.
