For many residents of Sandy Springs, driving is an everyday occurrence. Most of the time, the trip is not memorable and you arrive without incident. Unfortunately, car accidents can quickly turn a common commute into a difficult situation. The good news is you could be reimbursed for your accident-related losses if another driver was at fault.

However, determining which party was at fault for a crash is not always simple. Often, both drivers will point fingers at the other. A dedicated personal injury attorney could evaluate your claim, advise you on the law, and assist you with pursuing a case against the responsible driver.

If successful, your claim could result in monetary compensation. A Sandy Springs car accident lawyer could help you discover what compensation may be available, and assist you in bringing your claim.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries are often severe and in some instances, may even be fatal. Those that live through a serious crash could face debilitating physical and emotional injuries for the rest of their lives. These injuries could require extensive surgery and years of follow-up care. Common examples of injuries sustained in auto wrecks includes:

  • Cuts and bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation
  • Blindness
  • Burns
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Tendon and ligament damage

A Sandy Springs attorney could help a car accident victims evaluate their injuries. If the motor vehicle collision was caused by the negligence of another person, compensation for these injuries could be available, but plaintiffs must act quickly to preserve key evidence.

Proving Negligence in a Vehicle Crash

Suffering injuries in a car crash is not enough to ensure compensation. A Sandy Springs motorist or their knowledgeable attorney must establish another driver’s negligence caused the car accident.

Negligence involves a careless, reckless, or intentional act that leads to a crash. To prevail in a negligence lawsuit, the plaintiff must establish for elements first, that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care to drive safely. Second, that the defendant breached their duty to drive safely. Third, the breach resulted in a car accident. Fourth, the injuries the plaintiff suffered in the crash are compensable.

When it comes to vehicle accidents, negligent acts could come in various forms. Examples could include running a red light, driving under the influence of drugs, driving the wrong direction down a one-way street. Even answering a text message or talking on the phone could constitute negligence.

When Drivers Share Fault for an Accident

In some cases, the injured party is not entirely without fault in causing the car accident. In Sandy Springs, the doctrine of modified comparative fault applies. Under this standard, a plaintiff may not recover monetary compensation if they are 50 percent or more at fault for the car accident. If a Sandy Springs plaintiff is less than 50 percent responsible, the court will reduce their monetary recovery by their degree of fault. For example, a motorist that is 30 percent at fault for a crash will see their damage award reduced by that same degree.

Let a Sandy Springs Car Accident Attorney Help

Car accidents are stressful, no matter the severity of your injuries. It is rarely easy to know where to turn after they occur. These challenges only worsen over time as stress and debt mounts.

A Sandy Springs car accident lawyer could advise you on pursuing a legal claim that could offset your losses. To learn more about your potential recovery, set up a case evaluation right away. The sooner you act, the sooner you can start fighting for the compensation you deserve.
