Car Accident Victims with Neck Injuries Turn to Atlanta Accident Attorneys at Kalka & Baer

The torque that results from a car crash can jar the passengers inside of the car to the point of injury. Such injuries can be evident instantaneously or show up after a period of time if left untreated. Neck pains and damages frequently occur in wrecks like these, resulting in long-lasting pain, physical therapy and even surgery. Many clients turn to Kalka & Baer when they experience such damages from the negligence of another driver.

Georgia law states that anyone who operates a motor vehicle on the roadway must exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. A failure to use reasonable care is called negligence. Negligence can be determined several ways:

  • Disobeying posted traffic signs
  • Failing to signal when making a turn
  • Disregarding current weather conditions
  • Failing to drive on the proper side of the roadway
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Aggressive driving

In most Georgia personal injury cases, there is a two-year statute of limitations to file a lawsuit against the person who is responsible for your injury. So if you haven’t been able to come to an agreement with the insurance companies and parties involved, call Kalka & Baer today. To show the person who caused the injury was negligent, they must not have used reasonable care regarding the accident. In Georgia, it must be proved that:
  • The person who caused your injury owed you a duty
  • The other person broke or breached that duty
  • You suffered damages
  • The other person's failure caused your injury

Rear-end collisions often cause whiplash for the driver or front-seat passenger of a car as the force drives the occupant’s head forward to its limit until it pulls back, like the tip of a whip. Neck sprains and strains are also frequently reported injuries in auto accidents. Other injuries include nerve damage, disc damage, tearing of ligaments and fractures of the cervical vertebrae.
