Serious Auto Accidents in Georgia
In approximately one-third of recorded fatal car accidents yearly, reckless driving—which can take many forms, such as speeding or making erratic lane changes—has been a contributing factor.
DUI accidents are also on the rise, unfortunately. In 2013 alone, 4% of all accidents in Georgia involving a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) between 0.01 and 0.07 had alcohol as a significant contributing factor. What’s more, in 25% of all fatal collisions, the motorist had a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher.
Auto accident victims frequently postpone retaining legal counsel due to cost considerations.
