Jackson County, Georgia Personal Injury Lawyer
Jackson County was created on February 11, 1796. It was formed from land from Franklin County. The new county was named in honor of Revolutionary War Lieutenant Colonel, Congressman, Senator and Governor James Jackson. In 1801, the Georgia General Assembly allocated a sizeable chunk of Jackson County for a new 40,000-acre college to be known as the University of Georgia. Eventually, a new county named Clarke County was carved out of Jackson County and the town of Athens was established around the university.
Jefferson is the county seat of Jackson County. Some of the other municipalities and neighborhoods of Jackson County include: Arcade, Braselton, Commerce, Hoschton, Pendergrass, and Talmo. Presently, Jackson County is home to approximately 50,000 people. Major attractions in Jackson County include Chateau Elan Winery, The Atlanta Dragway, and the Tanger Outlet Malls in Commerce.

When the weather is warm, bikers often take to the road as well, which can lead to severe motorcycle wrecks. When traffic accidents are severe enough, they may even cause the wrongful death of injury victims.
