Georgia Car Accidents

Sandy Springs, GA - At Least One Injured After Crash at I-285 & New Northside DrThe highest number of fatal car accidents in Georgia occur in Fulton County, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. There are many tragic car accidents and traffic fatalities there. One of the potential causes of the high fatal crash rate in the area is the area’s dense population. In 2018, there were 36560 traffic fatalities nationwide, according to NHTSA. The death rates from crashes have reduced by 2.4 percent since 2017.

The expenses incurred if you or a loved one has ever been in an automobile accident are well known to most individuals. The situation is made worse by the financial losses incurred from missing work and the rising costs of medical care, follow-up appointments, and auto maintenance. However, if the car accident was not your fault, South Carolina law may require someone else to pay these expenses.

Making a claim for a car accident may enable anyone who suffered losses as a result of a collision caused by the recklessness or negligence of another driver to receive monetary compensation. In this type of civil litigation, the injured party must demonstrate that the at-fault party owed them a duty of care—such as driving lawfully and safely—that the at-fault party violated, that the breach caused the accident and its consequences, and that the violation was the primary cause of the accident.
