Georgia Car Crash Victims Turn to Kalka & Baer

Most people think the odds not being in a car accident are in their favor. Those people are wrong about that. The U.S. Census Bureau reports transportation accidents and fatalities to be on the decline since the 1990 but still a serious national problem.

  • Motor vehicle accidents – 10.8 million in 2009
  • Fatal collision accidents with other motor vehicles – 13,900 in 2009
  • Fatal collision accidents with fixed objects (trees, guardrails, etc.) – 11,600 in 2009
  • Georgia traffic fatalities – 1,284 in 2009

Some motor vehicle accidents are true accidents, unexpected and unforeseen mishap without apparent cause. However, many accidents are collisions that could and should have been avoided. Here are a few things that cause the majority of accidents:
  • Equipment failure – like loss of brakes, tire blowouts or steering/suspension failure
  • Roadway design – lack of proper road barriers and guardrails, poor design that limits visibility and proper traffic flow
  • Poor roadway maintenance – debris, faded roadway signs, potholes, etc.
  • Driver behavior – distracted driving, speeding, aggressive driving are the more common reasons drivers caused an accident

If you have been injured from a Georgia car crash due to someone else’s negligence, you can file a personal injury action claim within two years of the injury occurring. One common reason why Georgia victims file a claim is because insurance companies do not always want to pay an accident victim fair compensation for either large or small accident cases. That problem with the insurance companies frequently occurs, but, we can help.
