Atlanta, GA has grown to be one of the country's biggest hubs of people and traffic, not to mention sports and entertainment. The wagon wheel of the south, Atlanta serves as the launch and arrival point for countless people each and every day.
Along with this elevated reputation and operation, Atlanta also faces its share of dangers. One of these dangers is drunk or reckless driving. Reckless driving causes countless injuries and deaths each year, tragically tearing many families apart.
Reckless driving can take numerous different forms. Some of the most common that we see in this area include:
- Drunk driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Excessive speeding
- Disrespect for other drivers
Each of these behaviors shows a complete disregard for the law as well as for the safety of those around the driver. Reckless driving can easily lead to a dangerous wreck, injuring or killing one or all of the others involved.
The saddest part about Atlanta drunk driving injury cases is that they usually involve innocent people. A drunk driver can come out of nowhere, hitting you or a loved one head-on going the wrong way on the interstate, even if you were doing absolutely nothing wrong.
If this is the case, and you or a family member has been injured or even killed by a reckless driver, there is no reason that you should have to shoulder the burden of their irresponsible behavior. Instead, you may be eligible to recover damages from the accident, making things right while putting your life back together.
