Common Causes Of Car Accidents
Car accidents happen every single day. Drivers these days are often in a hurry and have a multitude of distractions. Some of the most common causes of auto accidents include driving while distracted, drowsy or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In addition, reckless driving, like speeding or weaving in and out of traffic, can cause a car crash. Failing to follow traffic rules and disobeying stop signs and signals can also easily result in accidents. Other causes can include bad weather or poor road conditions.
If your motor vehicle accident occurred because of someone else’s inattention or negligence, you may be entitled to damages for your injuries.
Damages And Compensation For Victims Of Motor Vehicle Accidents In Georgia
When it comes to car accidents and liability, Georgia is considered an “at-fault” state. In other words, anyone seeking damages must prove that the other driver was at fault for the crash. Georgia also uses a “modified comparative negligence” analysis for determining damages. This means that the other driver must be more at fault in order for you to recover damages and compensation for your injuries or property damages.
Once the fault of the other driver can be established, the other driver’s insurance company will cover any damages. Victims of car accidents in Georgia may be entitled to damages for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses, including medical bills for doctor visits and hospital stays
- Damages to your car, including repair or replacement
- Rental car costs
- Lost wages
- Lost companionship
- Wrongful death
Victims can also recover punitive damages (damages meant to punish the wrongdoer), but punitive damages are usually limited to $250,000. There is no cap on compensatory damages, meaning that you may be entitled to compensation for anything that you can prove was damage resulting from the accident. Strict statutes of limitation and filing deadlines apply. It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a car accident to make sure that you are preserving your rights under the law.
