Causes of Auto Accidents

Car accidents have many causes, including drunk driving, aggressive driving, excess speeding, driver drowsiness, poor road conditions, vehicle failure, stuck accelerators and negligence. Negligent driving can be a driver not paying attention due to countless different distractions including driver texting, cell phone misuse, eating, changing the radio station, reading, or even putting on cosmetics. Many times accidents are caused by a combination of these. If we represent you in your case, we will fully investigate every potential avenue of liability and hold the responsible parties fully accountable to the maximum extent.

Fatal Accidents

If a member of your family has died in a fatal car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or bicycle or pedestrian accidents, we understand that your family may be facing difficult challenges along with financial strain from the loss of a loved one. We can provide personal support and effective representation, and help you obtain justice for a loved one's wrongful death. Compensation for a wrongful death claim can include recovery for final medical expenses, funeral expenses, future lost wages and loss of a loved one's companionship. See our wrongful death page or contact us for more information.

Georgia Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving is a serious problem in Georgia, and contributes to many fatal and injury accidents every day in Georgia. The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration in the United States for drivers 21 years of age or older is .08 g/dL (grams per deciliter) or higher. Additionally, research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggests that the risk of being killed in a solo-vehicle crash for drivers with a BAC between .05 and .09 is 11 times higher than drivers without any alcohol in their system. If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driver getting behind the wheel, we can help you obtain justice and compensation for your injuries.
