Despite the campaigns and general knowledge that distracted driving is dangerous and is the reason for serious and fatal accidents, many motorists in Georgia and elsewhere still do it. With technology being very important in our everyday lives, it is hard to shut it off. This is especially true when individuals are on their way to work and need to answer calls, texts and emails. While it is important to take care of business matters, behind the wheel of a motor vehicle is not the place. When a distracted driving is the cause of a crash, victims can suffer significantly. These victims can also take steps to hold this driver accountable for their negligence.
Whether it is considered a severe collision or a fender bender, accident victims can suffer a wide range of injuries and damages. This can include cuts, bruises, whiplash, broken bones, facial scarring, injuries to the back, neck or spinal cord, loss of a limb, brain injury or even death. And with medical bills piling up, an accident victim may need to take time to recover. This means taking time away from work, causing lost wages as well.
