Car Accidents in Georgia
Car accidents happen every hour of the day in Georgia and occur in many different areas. Though highways are some of the most common places for car accidents, another area where accidents tend to occur is at intersections. When drivers are too preoccupied with their cell phones or are traveling at high speeds and are unable to stop in time, an intersection accident can take place in the blink of an eye. These accidents impact many victims every year within the state. In fact, research has shown recently that 2.5 million intersection accidents take place in just one year’s time within the U.S. These accidents can be prevented and tend to lead to serious damages.
