Distracted driving is a serious problem across the country, including the state of Georgia. Law enforcement agencies are doing everything possible to curb this issue as much as they can. Distracted driving can be very dangerous. It can also be deadly. Here's how you can spot distracted drivers on the roads of Georgia so you know when to get out of the way or safely off the road.

Whiplash may cause many symptoms

Whiplash is a broad term that may refer to many different injuries, generally describing injuries to the musculature around the neck and back. These injuries may not cause pain immediately, but may instead cause pain over a matter of hours or days after the injury. Whiplash is a type of delayed-onset injury that does not cause pain immediately, often allowing the injury to worsen before the victim receives treatment.

Does your car accident justify a manufacturer liability suit?

In some instances, car accidents are not the result of any one driver's negligence or poor judgment. Instead, some car accidents occur because some component of the vehicle itself malfunctions, causing the car to crash. When this occurs, it is time to consider a manufacturer liability suit.

Driving error leaves 7 injured after accident

A simple misunderstanding narrowly avoided disastrous consequences at Buford Highway's intersection with Ga. 400 recently when a two-car accident left seven people injured, one hospitalized and one vehicle overturned. The accident occurred when a woman attempted to turn left onto the Ga. 400 onramp, causing the other vehicle to strike her own and flip it over.

Parking lot car accidents

Car accidents can happen anywhere and produce serious injuries and property damage, even in places you might not expect. Many people don't realize that one of the most common places for car accidents to occur is not on high-speed roadway, but in a boring old parking lot. Parking lots actually hold significant dangers that many drivers don't recognize because the lots are so fundamentally different from roads.

Do you drive drowsy?

With the amount of time and effort put into informing the public of the dangers of drunk or drugged driving, it's strange to realize that another kind of impaired driving receives only a fraction of that same attention. In the United States, many individuals suffer serious or even fatal car accidents each year because of drowsy driving.

Protect yourself before you leave the scene of an accident

After you suffer a car accident, you may not always know when it is acceptable to leave the scene. Depending on the circumstances surrounding an accident, leaving the scene before it is appropriate may lead to criminal hit-and-run charges for fleeing the scene. Should you face difficulty determining when you can safely leave the scene, do not hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney who can help you understand the important elements of your particular accident.

Don’t accept weak injury settlements based on poor valuation

After you suffer an injury from a car accident, you may not know how to assess what your injury claim is actually worth. That may make it very difficult to determine how fair a given settlement offer actually is. Depending on who makes the offer and how quickly they do so, you may have fairly significant concerns about the value of the settlement overall.

Filing your own accident report without police

If you experience a car accident where another driver strikes you, you probably know that you should wait at the scene of the accident for a police officer to arrive and create an accident report. Accident reports are very useful any time you have to file a claim, whether it is with your own insurer or against another driver.

Delayed pain deserves proper medical attention

If you recently suffered a car accident and only just began to feel some form of pain, you should seek out professional medical attention as soon as possible. When you experience delayed pain after an accident, it can indicate a variety of injuries, some of which can lead to long-term damage or even death if left untreated
