Many wrecks are the result of driver negligence. Every driver owes a legal duty of care to everyone else on the road, so when they engage in reckless or careless behavior that puts others in danger, they typically become liable for any injuries their actions cause.

Many car accidents in Georgia are caused by:

  • Distracted driving (including texting while driving)
  • Fatigued driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Failure to follow traffic laws (including changing lanes without signaling and running red lights)

Frequently Asked Questions about Georgia Car Accidents

  • When Should I Reach Out To A Car Accident Attorney After An Accident?

    It's advisable to contact a car accident attorney in Atlanta promptly after the incident. Early involvement allows the attorney to gather evidence, assess the situation, communicate with insurance companies, and guide you through legal proceedings for a smoother and potentially more successful case resolution.

  • Can I Recover Compensation in Georgia If I Was Partially Responsible for a Car Accident?

    Possibly. Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state, meaning you may be able to recover partial compensation for damages if your share of the blame does not exceed 49%. If you are found to be equally at fault or primarily at fault, you will not be able to recover anything. Should you be only partially responsible, your damages will be reduced by what the court determines to be your percentage of fault. For example, if your damages total $100,000 and the court decides you are 20% responsible for the car accident, you would receive $80,000. Our firm can assess your potential level of fault and advise how it may impact your case.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in Georgia?

    In the state of Georgia, you usually have up to two years from the date of the car accident to file a lawsuit. If a loved one passed away due to fatal injuries sustained in a wreck, you will have two years from the date of their passing – not the date of the accident – to file a wrongful death claim. You will be unable to recover any damages if you miss the applicable deadline, so do not wait to discuss your case with a legal professional.

  • What Compensation Can I Receive for My Losses?
    If you are injured in an auto accident in Georgia, you may be entitled to compensation for various kinds of losses you have incurred, including:
    • Medical expenses
    • Property damage
    • Loss of income
    • Loss of future income
    • Loss of physical function
    • Emotional distress
    • Pain and suffering
  • Who Must Pay for My Losses from an Auto Accident?

    If you’ve ever been involved in a car accident, you know just how costly they can be. Typically, whichever party was at fault must pay for the damages incurred in a car accident.

    However, there are instances in which you may be entitled to financial compensation from one or more parties, including:

    • The driver or other person who was at fault for the accident.
    • The auto insurance company for the person who caused the accident.
    • Another person or other entity with financial responsibility for damages that that person causes.
    • A vehicle owner or driver who was negligent in correcting issues that contributed to the cause of the accident.
    • A company or individual for whom a contractor is loading or driving a vehicle improperly.
    • A manufacturer or government department or agency that was negligent in addressing an unsafe condition that contributed to the cause of the auto accident.
