Fatal Car Crash in Georgia
Fatal car accidents are frequently reported in our state, bringing about extensive consequences for families. The aftermath of these accidents leaves families in pieces, as they are forced to deal with the overwhelming sorrow of losing a cherished family member. Besides the emotional impact, fatal accidents often impose financial hardships, which made it incredibly hard for families to move forward. Unfortunately, we see many accidents take place due to negligence. Some of the most common causes of fatal collisions across our state include:
- Distracted driving: Diverted attention from activities like texting or phone use hampers a driver’s ability to respond to road conditions, contributing to accidents.
- Running stop signs: Disregarding traffic control devices increases the likelihood of intersection crashes and poses a serious threat to safety.
- Wrong-way driving: Traveling in the opposite direction disrupts traffic flow and poses a severe risk of head-on collisions.
