Atlanta Car Wreck Lawyer
Atlanta Car accidents are common. Most of the time they are minor. But sometimes they cause serious injury or result in death. The Atlanta car wreck lawyers at the law offices of Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. are one call away if you are injured in a serious accident.
According to The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), based on Centers for Disease Control’s 2006 data, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death for people ages 3 to 34 in the United States. In 2009, motor vehicle accidents were responsible for more than 2.2 million injuries. In Georgia alone, there were 1,493 traffic fatalities in 2008 with 416 of these fatalities alcohol-related and 309 speeding-related.
Why does an Atlanta car wreck happen?
Atlanta car wrecks can be caused in as many ways as there are drivers. Georgia’s highways and roads serve drivers of all kinds—from commercial truckers hauling freight in big rigs to tourists making their way through our beautiful mountains, beaches, and countryside.
Accidents on our roads often can be traced to driver error or mechanical failure. The most common causes of car crashes are:
- Alcohol abuse
- Cell phone use
- Poorly or inadequately lit roads
- Poorly drained roads
- Improperly constructed roads
- Defective airbags, seatbelts, accelerator pedals
- Other vehicle defects
Whatever their cause, auto accidents can severely affect a family—
- When the main wage earner and supporter of the family is injured and unable to work
- If the caretaker of small children cannot function
- When children are hospitalized and need constant attention
- If a family member is permanently disabled and needs lifelong care
In fact, almost every serious car crash affects not only the injury victim, but children, family, friends, and employers. Our Atlanta car wreck lawyers understand what is needed to address the losses that you and your family may face after a serious accident.
