Car Accidents in Georgia
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured in Georgia car accidents due to the recklessness of others. In just one recent year’s time in Georgia, approximately 116,000 people were injured in car accidents due to the negligence of others. These accidents occur in many areas but highways are some of the most common places. This is due to the fact that drivers travel at high speeds in these areas. These accidents are actually caused by many different reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, fatigue, and more. If you can show that another party is at fault for your accident, you can move forward with a claim knowing that your rights are being protected.
