Woman injured in fatal Georgia auto crash

When it comes to car accidents, there are a number of factors that victims and their families may want to take into consideration. For example, if the driver responsible for an auto accident was intoxicated, uninsured or operating their vehicle recklessly, that could have an impact on the outcome of a case if victims decide to take legal action. In Atlanta, Fulton, and throughout the whole state of Georgia, a startling number of people have been killed and hurt in auto accidents and it is important for victims of these accidents to explore all of their options.

Speeding increases the severity of truck crashes

In 2012, the number of commercial drivers who had at least one prior speeding conviction before being involved in a fatal truck accident was close to 18 percent, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety states that the majority of fatalities in large truck crashes in Georgia and across U.S. roadways are people in passenger vehicles. A collision with a much larger and heavier truck would be damaging to an automobile at any speed. When a truck exceeds the speed limit or drives too fast for current road conditions, the danger is increased exponentially.
