Car Accidents in Georgia
A car crash can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of accidents that result in injuries take place in Georgia every year. There are many cases where victims suffered debilitating injuries and crashes caused by negligent drivers. When drivers are distracted, impaired, or under the influence, they can cause serious accidents that have devastating consequences for victims. Quite often, victims are left with serious injuries following these accidents. Common injuries reported in car crashes include:
- Compound fractures: Suffering a broken bone can be incredibly difficult to deal with. People who suffer from these injuries often require casting and have to go through surgery. In severe cases, therapy and rehabilitation may be required to overcome these injuries.
- Internal organ injuries: Internal organ injuries can be incredibly life-threatening. This is particularly true if victims do not receive timely medical care. We see many people left with spleen injuries, kidney injuries, and even punctured lungs following accidents in our state every year.
- Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries can be incredibly debilitating. People who suffer from these injuries are often left paralyzed, whether permanently or temporarily. Either way, a spinal cord injury can have an overwhelming impact on your life.
If another person’s negligence has caused you harm, it is important that you seek timely legal representation.
