The Ever Present Danger of Car Accidents

By Grant Law Office on August 10, 2015

Just last month, a car accident in DeKalb County killed three people. According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, a white Mercedes SUV ran a red light and hit a car carrying two women and one man. All three were killed in the collision. Reportedly, the driver of the Mercedes attempted to flee but was restrained by witnesses until the police arrived.

While multiple deaths from an automobile accident are a fairly rare occurrence, this tragic story shows us that they are still a possibility. Even though today’s cars are safer than ever, they are still dangerous machines when not operated responsibly. Just last April, five nursing students at Georgia Southern University were killed when they were struck by another vehicle. In both of these cases, the deceased were found to be not at fault.

Just being a responsible driver doesn’t guaranty you’ll avoid an auto accident. A crash that results in death is a horrible thing, but even more minor car accidents can do a lot of damage.

In addition to the possibility of a serious injury, you also need to consider the economic impact an accident can have. Even a minor injury could keep you out of work for a significant period of time, resulting in lost wages. Then there’s the damage to your vehicle not covered by your deductable. And you have medical expenses. These costs add up quickly.

If you or a family member has been involved in a car accident, you need to contact a veteran attorney with experience in such matters if you’re injured or not. The seasoned lawyers at Atlanta’s Grant Law Office can advise you of your rights and help you obtain rightful compensation. Call us at (404) 995-3955 for a free consultation.
