Fatal Car Accidents in Georgia
Automobile accidents across Georgia are often preventable. Unfortunately, these accidents take the lives of hundreds of people annually. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration performed a study that determined that a significant portion of these accidents can be attributed to driver errors and poor decision-making. A significant number of crashes took place as a result of disobedience of stop signs and red lights at intersections, accounting for nearly one-third of all fatal collisions.
The study also found that intoxicated drivers, those distracted by their phones and other objects, and drivers failing to yield the right of way also play substantial roles in many fatal collisions across the United States. These and other reckless actions can cause severe harm to other drivers sharing the road. Unfortunately, many of these accidents result in fatalities.
