Anyone who lives in or around Atlanta knows that car accidents are a common occurrence. Major interstates such as 85, 75, 285, and 20 are traveled by millions of people each year. There are also a number of heavily traveled roadways through Downtown Atlanta, such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd, Peachtree St., Moreland Avenue, and Ponce de Leon Avenue.
These roads are heavily traveled by cars and trucks, but also by pedestrians. Their narrow lanes and tree-lined sidewalks make them precarious for drivers. Drivers who are inattentive, speeding, or who have had too much to drink make these roads incredibly dangerous.
At The Embry Law Firm, our Atlanta car accident lawyers have worked with many clients who have been involved in accidents on these roadways. We understand how Atlanta car accident investigations work and what you need to do in order to prove and win your case.
Car accidents are caused by a variety of factors – some which boil down to dangerous driving, and others that are due to factors outside of the driver’s control. The most common causes of car accidents, however, are related to driver behavior. These causes include:
Of course, there are car accidents that are caused by factors outside of the driver’s control in which a party other than the victim is liable. These cases involve faulty or defective car parts, road hazards or roadway debris.
No matter what the cause of the car accident is, it is important to contact an Atlanta car accident lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. Contact The Embry Law Firm to make sure your legal rights are protected, and that you have the option of pursuing the compensation you deserve.
