According to the most recent Georgia Department of Transportation traffic data, there will be over 350,000 automobile accidents in Georgia in 2021. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, the frequency of traffic accidents in our state climbed considerably.

The many hazards on our roads and drivers’ irresponsibility, including texting and driving and drunk driving, resulted in at least 118,000 injuries and roughly 1,200 fatalities. Of course, and to make matters worse, those who are at fault in car accidents should be prepared to pay a considerable quantity of money.
