Not every Georgia car accident is the same. Any accident can encompass a wide variety of legal factors, and any type of accident can result in personal injury or damage to vehicles or property. According to statistics compiled by the state of Georgia, over six million people were involved in crashes involving vehicles between 2000 and 2006.
As personal injury attorneys, we understand that accidents can include passenger vehicles, motorcycles, pickup trucks, SUVs, commercial trucks, and wild animals. Every accident is unique, although our extensive experience has taught us that patterns can emerge over time. For example, it is reasonable to assume that motorcycle accidents will often include injuries, but statistics also show that accidents involving pickup trucks are more likely to include fatalities than passenger cars, due to lower seat belt usage.
After an accident, an attorney can help you in dealing with claims and legal negotiations. Auto accident attorneys know that accident suits involving personal cars, trucks, and motorcycles may be restricted to individuals, while incidents involving larger trucks may involve the companies that employ the drivers. An experienced law firm can help you get the compensation you deserve.
There are also factors of risk as they relate to different areas. For example, motorcycle accidents are more likely to occur in rural areas, and there was a 60 percent increase in motorcycle accidents in the 2000s. In addition, there are more fatalities in rural areas even though there are more crashes in the greater Atlanta area. Therefore, motorists should know their rights, but they should also understand the general risks involved with various types of driving.
