If you are involved in a car accident in Georgia, it is only natural to be scared. This is particularly true if you have never faced this situation in the past.
Georgia law bans texting while driving for all drivers, and bus drivers and teen drivers are prohibited from using cell phones for any purpose while behind the wheel. The reality, though, is that many motorists continue to put lives at risk by ignoring distracted driving laws, and victims deserve full and fair compensation after being injured by a distracted driver.
Commercial vehicles are a common sight on Georgia roads and highways. We depend on these trucks to transport the goods we need across the country. However, there are risks associated with the trucking industry of which we should be aware.
Every collision between motor vehicles has the potential to result in serious damage to property and people. In many cases, accident injuries are easy to see and/or diagnose; brain trauma, broken bones and lacerations are often immediately noticeable. However, not all injuries are visible and many may not even seem concerning at first.
