Catastrophic Injuries Caused by Car Accidents

By Grant Law Office on August 21, 2019

Advances in design; the development of lighter, stronger metals; and safety features like airbags and shoulder harnesses make the likelihood of surviving a collision greater today than 20 years ago. Still, thousands of Americans are killed or catastrophically injured in motor vehicle accidents every year.

Who Is to Blame in a Car Accident?

By Grant Law Office on August 20, 2017

Each year, in the state of Georgia, approximately 120,000 individuals are injured in car accidents and another 1,200 lose their lives. Car accidents often occur suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving the victim driver with little to no time to react. Despite this, they are largely preventable. Because many are caused by driver negligence, by practicing safer driving and reducing distractions, a vast number of car accidents could be avoided. With that said, Georgia state law allows victims of car accidents to seek compensation for their damages from the at-fault driver.

Multiple Injuries Suffered in Atlanta Area Crash

By Grant Law Office on April 6, 2015

Nine people were injured in an Atlanta area car accident between a passenger vehicle and a van carrying multiple special needs adults. According to a My Fox Atlanta news report, the fatal car accident occurred on Lithonia Industrial Boulevard at Rogers Lake Road in DeKalb County. Officials say the passenger vehicle turned in front of the van before the van struck the vehicle and overturned. All eight people inside the van were injured and are being treated for non-life threatening injuries at Grady Memorial Hospital. The driver of the passenger vehicle suffered a possible broken wrist. That driver has been charged with failing to yield.

Georgia Injury AttorneyThere are many Georgia laws that require motorists to yield at intersections, to yield when turning left, and to yield to oncoming traffic. Drivers must use caution when turning, entering traffic, changing lanes, and merging. Motorists who fail to yield the right of way can face traffic citations, points on their license, and civil litigation from the injured victims.
