Types of vehicle accidents and determining liability

When we’re behind the wheel, we tend to forget that motor vehicle accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, with devastating consequences. From car and motorcycle accidents to truck and bus accidents, these incidents can result in serious injuries, property damage, and even death. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it’s important to seek the help of a personal injury attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Car accidents

Car accidents are among the most common types of motor vehicle accidents. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, mobile phone use while driving and reckless driving. Car accident victims may suffer injuries such as whiplash, broken bones, or head trauma, which can require costly medical treatment and ongoing care.

A personal injury attorney can help car accident victims receive settlement for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from the accident.

Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents can be particularly dangerous due to the lack of protection for riders. Injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents can be severe, and victims may require long-term care or rehabilitation, which can be costly both financially and physically. Common injuries from motorcycle accidents include head injuries, broken bones, road rash, and spinal cord injuries.

Truck accidents

Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, including driver fatigue, mechanical failure, and distracted driving. Because of their size and weight, truck accidents can result in severe injuries or even death.

Determining liability in a car accident can be complex. Under the state of Georgia law, the person who caused the accident is usually held liable for damages. However, there are situations where multiple parties may be at fault.

To prove liability, you must show that the other driver breached their duty of care and caused the accident. You must also show that you suffered damages as a result of the accident, such as medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering.

State of Georgia Laws: Statute of Limitations and Comparative Negligence

In Georgia, there is a statute of limitations of two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you do not file within this time, you may lose your right to compensation. Additionally, Georgia follows the modified comparative negligence rule, which means that your damages may be reduced if you were partially at fault for the accident.
