Serious Vehicle Collisions in Georgia
The rate of speed involved in a collision can seriously impact the outcome of a car accident. Over 9,700 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents in 2017, and over one-quarter of those deaths were attributed to speeding. Excessive speed can make it harder for a driver to control their car and can make injuries more serious.
Drivers occasionally make reckless decisions that could significantly harm other vehicles, passengers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and more, whether it be due to intoxication, distracted driving, or speeding. If an accident causes you to lose your sense of purpose in life, you should consult with lawyers who can advise you on how to get just compensation from the party who caused the accident.
