Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

Hit by a distracted driver in Atlanta?

According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, more than six million Georgia residents were involved in some type of automobile accident between 2000 and 2006. In this time, 11,435 people were killed in car accidents across the state. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has also conveyed that distracted drivers are responsible for many car accidents as well. In fact, cellphone usage alone is responsible for thousands of car accidents and injuries in the United States every year.

If you've been hurt in a car accident that wasn't your fault, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your injuries through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C., our car accident lawyers in Atlanta are wholeheartedly dedicated to helping accident victims obtain the money they need for medical expenses, lost earnings and other damages after an automobile accident that was caused by distracted, or otherwise negligent, driving.

Some of the most common driver distractions include:

  • Reading or eating
  • Applying makeup
  • Adjusting the radio

Texting & Driving Laws in Georgia

According to the NHTSA, texting while driving is one of the most dangerous forms of distracted driving because it diverts the driver's mind, eyes and hands away from the road. Because of this, texting while driving has been banned in Georgia. However, many drivers still attempt to text while behind the wheel. If you've been hurt by a driver who was texting or otherwise distracted, we encourage you to contact an Atlanta injury attorney from our firm today. We can use our experience to help you collect the money you deserve. We are available to discuss your case 24/7, so do not hesitate to call now!

Seeking Damages for the Full Extent of Your Injuries

If you were hit by a distracted driver, the other party's insurance company will likely try to settle your claim as quickly as possible. It is important to understand that they do not have your best interests in mind; they are only interested in protecting their bottom line, so you should not hesitate to discuss your case with an experienced legal professional from Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. before you accept an offer. The insurance company may even attempt to prove that you were partially at fault for the accident, but you shouldn't be intimidated into accepting an unfair settlement.

With our firm by your side, you can ensure that your rights will be protected throughout the claims process. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a settlement that adequately reflects the extent of your damages, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial. Statistics have shown that accident victims are usually able to recover as much as three times more money simply by hiring a lawyer. The insurance company will often do whatever they can to settle your claim before you have the chance to hire legal counsel because they know that it will be harder to persuade you.
