Auto Accident, Injury & Fatality Attorneys Representing Georgia Residents
All too often, people experience a life-changing car crash, sometimes resulting in catastrophic injuries or death. In the State of Georgia, that happens more often than it should.
According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of injury deaths and the second leading cause of hospitalizations and ER visits throughout the state.
When these collisions occur, most people expect insurance companies to do the right thing and take care of them, but that rarely happens. Unfortunately, this is especially true when you look to your own insurance company to help when the at-fault driver has no insurance, or far less insurance than you need.
We know these responses make our clients anxious, overwhelmed, frustrated, and exhausted. We also know that with each mounting medical bill and doctor appointment, those feelings become more intense.
You do not have to endure these roadblocks alone.
We will go down every path to fully investigate your crash. We will make sure you receive the compensation you deserve, covering your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and all the ways that the law allows compensation for the effect that the crash has had on your life. No matter how big or small the crash was, we will guide you toward taking the right steps with confidence.
Call us today to learn more. Together, we can decide if we are a good fit for your case, and ensure your voice is heard.
What are the Most Common Causes of Auto Accidents, Injuries & Fatalities in Georgia?
According to the Georgia Department of Revenue, there are 8.8 million motor vehicles registered in the state. If you have ever been on I-75 during Atlanta’s rush hour, you understand. As it seems all the state’s nearly nine million drivers are traveling at the same time.
Whether these congested traffic patterns lead to crashes on the interstate, city streets, or rural roads, driver negligence is often the cause of the injuries and fatalities that result.
According to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the most common types of driver negligence that cause vehicle collisions in the Peach State include:
- Aggressive Driving
- Alcohol- and Drug-Impaired Drivers
- Distracted Driving
- Failing to Obey Traffic Signs and Signals
- Fatigued Driving
- Improper Turns
- Reckless Driving
- Unsafe Lane Changes
- Wrong-Way Driving
After these crashes occur, the amount of legal paperwork, car repair costs, medical bills, and potentially life-altering consequences can lead to major headaches. Remember you do not have to go through it alone.

How Injured Do I Have to Be to File an Auto Accident Injury Claim in Georgia?
If you have been injured in a vehicle collision in Georgia, your injuries will impact your life differently than they would another crash victim. In short, that means your vehicle collision case will be measured by how your injuries have impacted your day-to-day activities, livelihood, and overall quality of life.
If you have broken bones that will eventually heal, but your job — as a server, warehouse employee, or construction worker, to name a few — relies on your ability to be fully mobile, you could be out of work for months while you recover. These injuries warrant legal action just as much as another person who has suffered a Spinal Injury or Traumatic Brain Injury.
It is our job to convey the complete impact of your crash’s injuries, so we can establish your complete financial recovery needs with credibility and integrity. That requires outlining the facts of your case from a legal perspective, evaluating your injuries and overall compensation needs, and pursuing the liable party for the best outcome available for your unique case.
We deliberately limit the number of cases we take so that we can build relationships with our clients, devote the time that their cases deserve, and make their goals our goals. Together, we have decades of experience in overseeing the most complicated, catastrophic, and meaningful cases on behalf of the most deserving clients.
Can I Pursue a Legal Claim if I Lost a Loved One in a Car Accident in Georgia?
If you have lost a loved one in a vehicle collision caused by negligence, your entire life changes. First, the tragic crash takes someone you love. But before you can fully grieve a loss that could have been prevented, you are faced with the reality of the financial losses that accompany the crash.
No one should have to face this unfair and hurtful scenario. Unfortunately, it happens every day in Georgia. According to the most recent traffic crash statistics, there were 1,664 traffic fatalities on our Georgia roadways last year.
- 402 of those fatalities were caused by alcohol-impaired drivers.
- 380 of those fatalities were caused by speeding.
If you believe your loved one was killed by a negligent driver, you are going to need help proving that is true. That is what our Georgia car crash attorneys do.
