Legal Representation for the Injured in Sandy Springs, Georgia
There are very few people who have never been affected, in one form or
another, by a car accident. Whether or not they were involved personally—or
if they only sustained damage to their vehicle, not personal injuries—car
accidents can have wide-spread and potentially life-long consequences.
Per reports from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT),
more than six million people were involved in motor vehicle accidents in
a recent 5 year period. As a result of those accidents, 11,435 people were fatally injured. While
there are many different types of accidents and numerous factors can be
involved in causing such accidents, the GDOT found that 3 out of 4 accidents
occurred on two-way roads or highways, where there was no divider or separation
barrier between the two sides of the road. In addition, the GDOT found
that twice as many people are fatally injured in rural counties as are
killed in the metropolitan counties of Atlanta.
Rollover crashes in Georgia claim the most victims, with half of the occupants
sustaining serious or fatal injuries. Fixed object crashes, where a single
vehicle collides with a fixed object such as a light pole or wall, see
at least one out of three occupants seriously injured or killed.

The fact of the matter is, even the most attentive drivers, driving on
well-maintained roads, in the most optimum weather conditions, can find
themselves the victim of a car accident. While there are precautions all
drivers can take to reduce the risk of getting in an accident, there is
no way to eliminate the risk in its entirety. It can also be extremely
difficult, in some car accident cases, to prove negligence on the part
of the responsible party. That is why it is vital to have an experienced
personal injury attorney who knows how to determine liability, knows how
to best negotiate a settlement with big insurance companies, and is committed
to ensuring that your interests are protected. Car accidents can cause
serious, and sometimes life-long injuries.
