Car Accidents in Georgia
Car accidents happen every hour of the day throughout the state of Georgia. This makes them one of the leading causes of hospitalizations within the state every single year. Hundreds of thousands of people are hurt in car accidents across Georgia each year. These accidents happen in many different areas but highways are some of the most common. This is due to the fact that drivers are not always paying close attention to the roads around them on highways.
Some common reasons for highway-related collisions include driver distractions, drunk driving, speeding, drowsy driving, and more. If you have been hurt in a car accident that was caused by another party, you may be feeling alone and confused. It is up to you to show that another party is to blame for your accident. You should speak with an attorney that you can trust at this time.
Being hurt in a car accident can affect your life on physical, emotional, and financial levels. You may need the help of an Atlanta car accident lawyer as you move forward with a claim. This is especially true if you have sustained life-altering injuries in your accident. Some of these injuries include the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Organ damage
These injuries tend to land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time in the workplace. If you have been hurt in a collision, you should speak with an Atlanta personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
