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.

Anyone injured by a negligent driver who failed to yield the right of way can pursue financial compensation for the damages they have suffered. A personal injury claim against a negligent driver can result in compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Cost of hospitalization
  • Lost wages
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • The cost of rehabilitation
  • Medical devices
  • Prescription drugs
  • Other related damages

If you have been involved in an Atlanta car accident involving multiple injured victims, it is important that you take the steps necessary to protect your legal rights. Make sure you speak to the authorities and get your name on the police report. It is also advisable to take photos of the crash site and of your injuries. It may be in your best interest to seek out medical attention to get on the road to recovery.

If you would like to pursue a personal injury claim, please make sure you receive legal guidance. It is common for victims to receive inadequate settlements or to have their claim denied. An experienced Atlanta intersection accident lawyer at the Grant Law Office can help ensure that your rights are protected every step of the way.
