Georgia DOT Plans to Improve Mike Padgett Highway

By Grant Law Office on June 28, 2013 - Comments off

Atlanta Auto AccidentIt took several accidents along Mike Padgett Highway to encourage the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to make significant improvements and enhance traffic safety. According to a WJBF news report, the most recent accident that occurred on Mike Padgett Highway happened in Augusta on June 19, 2013. In that accident, officials say a vehicle rolled over after a truck swerved to avoid striking another vehicle. That accident left four people injured and hospitalized.

Many nearby residents and drivers have stated their concerns about the safety of this busy roadway, and the Georgia DOT has taken notice. The $25-million dollar construction plan includes the installation of concrete medians from Bennock Mill Road to Old Waynesboro Road.

Dangerous roadways and intersections cause numerous accidents in Georgia every year. Common roadway hazards include poor roadway design, poor visibility, lack of markings and signage, potholes, and uneven pavement. When a dangerous roadway causes a crash, the governmental agency responsible for maintaining that roadway can be held liable for injuries and damages caused. In such cases, injured victims can file a personal injury claim against the concerned agency and seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

An experienced Atlanta car accident attorney will have the skill and resources it takes to stand up and fight against a governmental entity. You need an attorney who has the knowledge and tenacity it takes to help you obtain maximum compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses.
