Police still sorting out fatal Georgia accident

An accident in a small town south of Atlanta, Georgia, left a kindergartener dead and several other people seriously injured. The mother of the child who died was hospitalized and listed at one point in fair condition, while two of the woman's other children were treated after the accident but apparently released.

What kind of damages can be collected after a car accident?

Motor vehicles are heavily relied on. For many, it is their only way to get around or travel to work. Thus, heavy traffic is often an issue. However, whether traffic is bad or not, car accidents could happen for a wide range or reasons. Whether a driver is negligent, reckless or intoxicated, victims of a car crash should understand the legal recourses available to them.

Helping you take action following a car crash

Unfortunately, we cannot control the actions of others. This means that when we get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, we can only control how safe we drive. This also means that when a motorist in Georgia and elsewhere is negligent, distracted or intoxicated, the other travelers they encounter are put at a heightened risk. An automobile collision can be a very serious incident, resulting in severe damages, serious injuries and even death.

Wrong-way driver goes through nine barriers before head-on crash

Getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle means taking on responsibilities. For motorists in Georgia and elsewhere, that means taking on the responsibility and having the duty to drive safely. Despite having this duty, some drivers fail to do so by ignoring certain rules of the road. Whether it is speeding, texting and driving or driving while intoxicated, a negligent driver could suddenly collide with an unsuspecting motorist, resulting in a serious and even fatal crash.

Helping you hold a negligent driver accountable

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.

How serious of a problem is distracted driving?

Motorists in Georgia and elsewhere often find themselves having a busy schedule. While this is fairly common these days, causing many to multi-task to get through the day, this does not mean that multi-tasking is safe in any setting. While driving, motorists must focus on the task at hand. Unfortunately, some drivers seek to make a phone call, check an email or send a text. While these might seem like simple and minor acts, they could easily be the cause of a serious and even fatal crash.

Georgia law enforcement concerned about distracted driving

Let's face it; if all drivers drove safely, there would not be any car accidents. However, drivers speed, fail to use a turn signal, do not always use their mirrors and check blind spots, make risky turns, drive intoxicated and will drive distracted. These negligent and reckless behaviors behind the wheel can easily be the cause of a crash, causing much concern for individuals and law enforcement in Georgia and other states in general.

The different types of distracted driving

On a daily basis, numerous motorists in Georgia and elsewhere get behind the wheel of motor vehicles. While this is a common activity, as people need to get to work, school, the store and other locations, it is also an activity that carries with it many risks. Drivers don't just simply drive anymore. They play with the radio, talk on their phone, text, eat, drink, put on make-up and talk to passengers. Distracted driving is a very dangerous situation, which is why there are many initiatives to reduce this on the roadways.

When automobile collisions occur, an investigation is initiated. This process helps determine why the accident happened. By looking at the factors that contributed to the crash, authorities seek to establish what caused the crash and what role any of the parties involved played. When negligence is clearly a factor, this could help victims of the crash or the loved ones of a deceased victim fully understand what rights and legal recourses they might have.

Study indicates drowsy driving is as dangerous as drunk driving

While many motorists are able to drive safely, others fail to uphold this duty each time they are behind the wheel of a vehicle. When a driver is distracted, reckless or intoxicated, this could create a very dangerous situation. However, this is not the only form of danger, as a driver could create a risky situation by getting behind the wheel when they are fatigued or drowsy.
