Unfortunately almost everyone who drives a car regularly will at some point in their life, be involved in a car accident. That accident can happen anywhere, even on the scenic roads in Stone Mountain, Georgia. When this happens, you should call Stone Mountain car accident lawyer Charles Scholle so that you have an experienced attorney fighting for your legal rights. Luckily, most small collisions do not result in severe injuries, but a serious car accident can present a whole range of problems for the people involved.
Drivers must be responsible when on the road, both to themselves and those around them, each time they get behind the wheel. Impatience and distraction while driving lead to more preventable deaths than any other type of accident. Up to 80 percent of serious car accidents are caused by distracted driving and speeding just five seconds before the accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Once these accidents happen, they contribute to the leading cause of brain injuries and spinal injuries in the United States, both of which may lead to permanent disability like paraplegia.
Additionally, many severe medical injuries that result from auto accidents are also accompanied by long-term financial and emotional burdens that require a period of recovery for both the victim of the accident and his family. Long-term physical injuries sustained in a car accident might not be immediately apparent. In many cases what seems like a minor personal injury can evolve into to permanent back or neck pain, herniated disks, ruptured spinal disks or traumatic brain injuries.
