The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that approximately 2.4 million people were injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2012. Accidents involving cars and trucks often result in serious injuries, potentially leaving victims with extensive medical expenses and an inability to work for an extended period of time. In addition, auto accidents can be the cause of a tremendous amount of physical and emotional pain and suffering. When these accidents are the result of someone else’s negligence, Georgia tort law allows victims to recover for these and other losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Because these lawsuits can be extremely complicated and highly contentious, it is highly advisable for victims to retain the services of an experienced Peachtree City auto accident lawyer prior to filing a claim or accepting any settlement offer.

What Kinds of Driver Negligence Causes Car Accidents?

Examples of the kinds of driver negligence that may result in a car accident are as varied as the ways that car accidents may occur. That being said, some of the most common include the following:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to signal turns
  • Improper braking
  • Failure to account for poor weather
  • Driver error

Often, identifying the negligence that led to a car accident requires significant legal expertise as well as financial resources. Fortunately, one of our Peachtree City auto accident attorneys can provide both, all without requiring you to pay anything unless we bring your case to a successful resolution.
