Sylvester, GA (February 19, 2023) – According to the Worth County Sheriff’s Office, a serious automobile accident closed one lane of traffic in Worth County on Saturday, February 18, and apparently ended in victim injuries.
The sheriff’s office first reported the rollover collision at 4:15 p.m. on Highway 112 northbound near Medders Road. A medical helicopter arrived at the site of the incident shortly thereafter, and one victim was reportedly airlifted to an Atlanta-area hospital.
Neither the number of passengers nor the severity of injuries is presently known, though officers and Georgia Highway Patrol troopers said the area had to be shut down while emergency personnel was on the scene.
As the investigation proceeds, more details will be provided as they become available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Motor Vehicle Collisions in Georgia
In Georgia, speed is the leading cause of fatal crashes. Half of all car accidents in the United States every year result from aggressive drivers, the majority of whom were speeding. Over the previous 20 years, speeding was a contributing cause in around one-third of all reported traffic fatalities countrywide.
A car accident may be a terrifying and life-altering event. Unfortunately, the process has only begun with the vehicle accident. You are attempting to maintain your composure while dealing with a damaged automobile, medical expenses, and problems with insurance claims. It can be difficult to go on the insurance company and win the amount you are due. You do not need to experience it alone.
Damages for your personal injuries may also include certain out-of-pocket expenses you experienced as a result of the accident. In Georgia, financial compensation for personal injuries may be used to pay for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost income, and lost future earning potential. Insurance may occasionally cover accidental damage, but you’ll need legal counsel to maximize your compensation.
