Every day across Georgia, there are many vehicle collisions. These can occur in our large cities and in our small towns. And in each instance, they can cause property damage and personal injury. Athens Clarke County is the smallest county in Georgia, and yet there are roughly 2,000 auto accidents that result in injury in this county each year, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. The high flow of traffic through roads like U.S. Route 29, State Route 15, U.S. Route 441, and State Route 15, makes it understandable that drivers in this area are at risk of getting into a car accident. When you are driving and another car or vehicle strikes yours, you can become disoriented and upset. This is completely understandable. Car collisions can be very disruptive to our lives. Athens Clarke County auto accident attorneys at Scholle Law can help.
Car crashes, truck crashes and other motor vehicle crashes happen every day on our roads and highways. As we are more and more aware of the many types of injuries that can occur in these accidents, it is more and more important for victims to get the help they need. Often, injured drivers or passengers have been harmed by the negligence or aggressive driving from another vehicle driver on the road. In these instances, the law provides support. Insurance carriers should ensure that their insured driver be held responsible for harming others. But actually much of the time, they try to avoid this responsibility.
Whether you have been hit at an intersection when a truck failed to yield your right of way. Or whether you have been struck by a car that crossed the line or made an unsafe lane change and sideswiped your vehicle, the driver of that vehicle can be held accountable for harming you or your passengers. There is no doubt that vehicles are more and more safe. But auto crashes can still result in catastrophic or fatal injuries. We do not like to think about these things until they happen to someone we know or to us. But knowing what to do when or if you have been injured can make all the difference.
After an accident or injury it is helpful to consult with a lawyer. Time can be of the essence in these situations. Whether an injury seems mild or is severe and traumatic, important evidence must be preserved. That means that getting someone on your side that knows how to preserve this evidence is so crucial to the long term recovery of you or a loved one.
