GA scores low overall on safety report but high in road safety

Losing a loved one in a motor vehilce accident in Marietta may be the hardest thing that some people ever have to cope with. Even after the grief subsides, knowing that the crash may have been preventable can be extremely difficult for you and your family to live with. At Sams, Larkin, Huff & Balli, LLP, we know how heavy a toll car accidents can take on people’s lives.

A new study has taken a look at how each state fares when it comes to issues of safety and preventable deaths, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Researchers examined fatalities across four different categories:

  • Workplace safety
  • Safety in the home
  • Community safety
  • Road safety

While it may be disheartening to hear that, overall, Georgia received a grade of D and a ranking of 34th among the states, the one bright area for the state was road safety where it scored a B. Its overall grade was brought down due to the F’s it received in the other categories.

Areas that needed improvement when it came to road safety were speeding, fatalities of child passengers and use of seat belts. In 2015, there were 1,471 deaths related to motor vehicle accidents in Georgia.  It should be noted that no state in the country received an A ranking.

When it comes to deaths that are preventable, the families of victims are left grappling with overwhelming sadness and financial stress. For more information on dealing with accidents that occur while driving, please visit our web page.
