Given the diverse nature of the economy in Georgia, back roads play a major role in connecting communities in addition to the major interstates that crisscross the Peach State. These roadways are very vital both to the economy and leisure activities of Georgians because these are the routes taken not only in the distribution of goods, but also for those who wish to visit and view the scenic and historic landmarks of the state. However, this easy access to transportation in Georgia also translates to the increase of car accidents in the state. Though most of these accidents result only in minor injuries like bruises, cuts and scrapes, more devastating mishaps that result in more serious injuries are common, causing permanent disabilities or even fatalities.

The deaths due to moving vehicle accidents in Georgia do not only mark drivers and passengers as victims, but also pedestrians, bystanders and bicyclists. In 2004 alone, there were 153 deaths among these unwitting non-passengers.

Although not all injuries or damages caused by car accidents can result in lawsuits, it is still advisable that you contact a Georgia auto injury lawyer immediately after the incident. Whether you are the victim or the instigator of a car accident, you have to seek legal assistance so you can be guided through the recovery process. It is important that you are confident in the capabilities of the car accident lawyer that you contacted, as they will be your source of information when it comes to the laws of the state that applies to road mishaps.

When being involved in a car accident, it is best to remember to take note of all the circumstances that surround it, as well as to get the contact information and name of the other driver involved. It is also advisable for you to get the name and number of any witnesses who might have seen it take place. This information is vital in the thorough investigation that the Georgia auto injury lawyer will conduct to establish who was really responsible for the car accident. It has to be determined whether you were the one at fault or not to know how best to proceed. If you were not responsible for the incident, you are entitled to seek monetary retribution for medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses you faced. The Georgia auto injury lawyer you hired will help you through the process of filing this case and they will also help you in settling the case with the insurance company of the other driver. If they are not satisfied with the offer of the other party though, your auto injury lawyer will make sure that you get the maximum compensation to cover the medical expenses incurred.

If you lost a loved one because of a car accident, you also have the right to seek compensation. A Georgia auto injury attorney will help you file a claim for wrongful death. The monetary restitution that you will get may not bring your loved one back, but it will provide for you and your family, especially if the victim was the sole provider of income. The drastic effect on the security of your family because of your loved one's death will also be covered by the compensation.
