Common Causes of Car Accidents

The purpose of any automobile-related personal injury lawsuit is to seek compensation from the driver who caused either bodily harm to, or the wrongful death of, an innocent party. The objective is to return the injured victim to the position they would have been in if his or her catastrophic injury had never occurred.

Car accidents are commonly caused by the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Defective auto part
  • Poor road conditions

Our trusted Atlanta car accident lawyers have consistently proven that they are able to establish liability and recover damages for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other demonstrable losses.

The Doctrine of Comparative Negligence in Georgia

In the state of Georgia, you may be eligible to collect compensation for injuries sustained in a car accident even if you were partially at fault. The doctrine of comparative negligence means that an injured party may recover damages in proportion to the fault of others, so long as those others are more than 50 percent responsible for the incident.

For example, if the injured party is proven to be 35 percent responsible for the accident, he or she is still entitled to recover 65 percent of the damages to which he or she would be entitled if the defendants were fully at fault. As noted above, Georgia law does not allow damages to be awarded to someone who is found to be 50 percent or more at fault for an accident. Anyone who has been accused of contributing to their car crash should consult with an auto accident lawyer.
