Fatal Auto Accidents in Georgia
In 2022 alone, more than 1700 people died due to automobile accidents that occurred in Georgia. This accounts for more than 150 people dying every month as a result of vehicle collisions on our roads. The unfortunate truth is that many accidents occur due to the negligence of other drivers. We see many collisions caused by speeding motorists, drivers who are impaired, and drivers who do not yield the right-of-way.
When drivers engage in reckless actions, it can have devastating consequences for everyone nearby. Regrettably, families often incur overwhelming financial consequences as a result of these accidents. Dealing with the emotional struggles and the financial burdens that fatal collisions bring can be incredibly challenging. This is why it is important for families to take action. Families are able to file a wrongful death claim against those responsible to seek compensation to help ease some of the strains moving forward.
