Should I File a Lawsuit After My Car Accident in Atlanta?
A lawsuit for personal injuries due to an auto accident is not just about the damages that are to be awarded. It also has to do with determining who acted negligently and caused the accident, therefore holding them responsible. The research findings of the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), states that the most common cause of auto accidents are aggressive driving, distracted driving, intoxicated driving, speeding, driver fatigue and the weather. A major portion of these auto accidents could have been prevented had the individuals involved not acted negligently. The unfortunate consequences suffered by the victims, usually in the form of medical bills and lost wages are hard to account for. Our staff understands how difficult the time period is following your accident and we are here to help correct the injustice done to you.
If you have been involved in an auto accident, there are many questions that run through your mind. The most important of those questions that must be answered, is who is responsible for the accident. Determining liability in the accident will have a direct reflection on determining who is financially responsible for the injuries and property damages that were caused by the accident. The top cause of car accidents in the state of Georgia is distracted drivers. This is becoming more and more of a problem due to the advances in technology. Everyone seems to be using their cell phones while behind the wheel. Basically distracted driving is driving a vehicle while doing anything else that may cause the driver to take their eyes off the road. For example, using your cell phone, eating, drinking, grooming, rubbernecking or playing with the car stereo are all distracted driving scenarios.
Even with all the campaigns and educational tools used against drunk driving, it is still a cause of auto accidents. If there is sufficient evidence and it can be proven that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they can be held civilly and criminally liable. Sometimes the cause of car accidents could have nothing to do with the driver. Defective auto parts are sometimes responsible for auto accidents. Manufacturers of car parts have a duty to ensure that their products are safe. There have been instances where the manufacturers have started to place their companies profits over the importance of the quality of their parts. These unsafe parts can cause major auto accidents. A defective tire, seat belt, or an airbag malfunction can have deadly consequences to the driver or passengers involved. If you believe that a defective auto product is responsible for your accident, do not hesitate to contact one of our skilled auto accident attorneys to help you with your claim.
