Following the speed limit is one of the most basic rules of the road. Unfortunately, it's also one that drivers frequently tend to disregard—with devastating consequences.
The Tragedy of the Rising Number of Car and Truck Accidents
Since 2020, there's been a sharp increase in serious and fatal car and truck accidents in the Peach State. According to the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), speeding—as well as distractions, failure to wear a seat belt, and other risky behind-the-wheel behaviors—are likely what's driving the concerning trend.
Hurt in an accident caused by a speeding driver and grappling with injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and other losses as a result? Lost a loved one in a speeding-related crash that wasn't their fault, and suffering financial and emotional harm? You may be entitled to compensation from the person or company responsible.
However, obtaining a fair recovery in a car accident personal injury or wrongful death case requires a thorough understanding of the law, the civil litigation process, and the many pitfalls plaintiffs can face when seeking damages. That's where personal injury attorneys come in; we handle all aspects of your case and focus on your recovery so that you can focus on healing.
After carefully reviewing your case, we'll get to work gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, consulting experts, and more. Depending on the available facts and evidence, we may be able to help you recover compensation for medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses in a personal injury case. Wrongful death plaintiffs may be able to collect damages for a loved one's lost future wages and benefits, as well as intangible elements such as loss of care or companionship.
