In the year 2016, there were 1,561 traffic related deaths in the State of Georgia. That number is approaching a similar rate for 2017. There were also tens of thousands of Georgia commuters who were seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions and wrecks during this same period of time. Studies show that one of the most deadly, if not in fact the most deadly stretch of road in our State, is Interstate 285 surrounding the City of Atlanta. Being involved in motor vehicle collisions, car wrecks, hit-and-run incidents, or suffering a truck injury is common in the metro area.

There are many types of injuries that commonly result from car accidents. They range from minor bumps and bruises to serious, catastrophic injuries such as paralysis or death. No part of the body is immune from injury in a car accident; accident victims can suffer injuries to the brain and head, including concussion or traumatic brain injury, and to the neck and spine, like whiplash or a disc bulge or herniation. Motor vehicle accident victims can also suffer from psychological injuries and mental distress, which can be as painful and debilitating as a broken bone.
Similar injuries occur when colliding with a tractor trailer, operating a motorcycle or bicycle, when walking as a pedestrian, and even when striking a wandering farm animal.
There are many things to keep in mind when you are involved in an automobile collision. If you are injured in Georgia because of the negligence of someone else, please give us a call.
