Whatever the cause of the auto accident, you need protection.
Distracted drivers are among the leading contributing factors to auto accidents and collisions. In 2011 the state of Georgia made it illegal for drivers of all ages to read or send text messages or access the Internet on a wireless device while driving, however drivers continue to do so on a daily basis.
Georgia state law also makes it illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, but almost 35 percent of all traffic fatalities are still alcohol related. Illegal or unsafe speeds, driver inattention and other types of chemical impairment also commonly result in injury-causing automobile accidents.
Our experienced auto accident lawyers will be on your side and protect your rights after any kind of auto-injury accident.
Protect your rights after a hit-and-run auto accident.
In the state of Georgia, it is illegal to leave the scene of a car crash where someone has been hurt or property has been damaged. However, uninsured or underinsured motorists may “hit-and-run” to avoid getting in trouble or taking responsibility for their actions. If you’ve been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, we can work with your insurance company to get you the money you need—and deserve—while also trying to find out the identity of the hit-and-run driver.
Seat belts are your best protection in an auto accident.
People have different opinions about states that pass seat belt laws, but the fact is the laws are saving lives and reducing the severity of auto injury accidents. With or without seat belts, dangerous auto accidents resulting in severe injuries still happen. Our auto accident attorneys can help victims and their loved ones collect the compensation they deserve for the careless actions of others.
You deserve compensation for your auto accident injury.
In addition to mental and emotional pain, auto accident victims may not be able to work or get paid because of their injuries. Some victims who are injured in collisions may need extensive medical care for many years. At the same time, they may watch unpaid health care expenses pile up.
