Millions of intersection-related collisions occur every year in the state of Georgia due to the reckless acts of others. In fact, in just one recent year’s time, over 2.5 million intersection accidents happened in the U.S. due to reckless reasons. When a driver is not paying attention to the roads around them, an accident can occur at an intersection in the blink of an eye. Victims who have been hurt in one of these accidents should always have an attorney on their side.
