Car Accidents in Georgia
Car accidents are a leading cause of hospitalizations throughout the state of Georgia. These accidents happen every hour of the day within the state. In fact, in one hour’s time, it is estimated that approximately 70 car crashes took place due to the outright careless acts of others. These accidents happen in many different areas but highways are known for being some of the most common. This is due to the fact that drivers are not always paying close attention to the roads around them or following the speed limit in these areas. If you have been hurt in a car accident caused by another party, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust.
