Georgia Car Accident Lawyer

Every year, tens of thousands of people are injured in vehicle accidents in Georgia. While high-impact crashes frequently result in catastrophic casualties, smaller fender benders can sometimes cause injury. Given that driving is a necessity in the state, your odds of getting involved in a vehicle accident are rather high, regardless of how carefully you drive. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash, you may be eligible for significant compensation.

Marc Brown Law Firm is a leading personal injury law firm with clients all across Georgia. Our expert attorneys have a well-deserved reputation for fighting for the rights of the injured. Put our strong advocacy to work for you so you can get the most out of your claim and pay your expenses.

Car Accidents In Georgia

In Georgia, there are many different types of car accidents. Vehicles of various sorts, including passenger automobiles, commercial trucks, motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians, are all involved. Some accidents have a higher rate of damage than others. The following are some of the most typical types of car crash situations that our Georgia car accident lawyers handle:

  • Head-on collisions

People who are involved in a head-on collision are at significant risk of suffering severe injuries and even death. When two cars collide head-on, the impact is more severe. Because of distractions, alcohol impairment, or tiredness, many head-on collisions occur when a driver wanders into the opposite lane of traffic.

  • Rear-End Collisions

Whiplash and neck injuries are most commonly caused by rear-end collisions. Your head is forcefully thrown back and forth when a car slams into the back of your vehicle. The “whipping” motion can injure the soft tissues of the neck severely. Whiplash usually heals in a few weeks, but it can cause persistent discomfort and lifelong disabilities in some people.

  • Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers

Drunk driving accidents, also known as impaired driving accidents, are prevalent in Georgia. Drivers who are drunk or under the influence of drugs or alcohol have slower response times.

  • Multiple Vehicle Accidents

When there are more than two automobiles involved in a collision, we call it a multi-vehicle accident, or MVA. When a driver makes a mistake behind the wheel and collides with another vehicle, it can set off a chain reaction in which numerous cars collide. MVAs may be very dangerous since many automobile drivers and passengers may be harmed.

Georgia Modified Comparative Negligence Laws

According to Georgia law, you have the right to seek damages against anybody who is found to be more at fault than you. However, if you are more than 50% at fault for the accident, you are not entitled to any compensation generally. If you were responsible for 20% of the total, you might be eligible for up to 80% of the available compensation.

A judge or a jury determines these percentages, and the process might be complicated. It might mean less of a reward if you don’t have the legal skills of a Georgia car accident lawyer on your side to contest your claim.

Insurance Companies

Insurance companies for drivers are known for understating injuries and seeking to pressurize you into taking a quick, low-ball settlement, which is why you need our Georgia car accident lawyer on your side.
