Car accidents are becoming more common in Bremen as the school system and city continue to expand. Our location along Interstate 20 also continues to drive traffic through our city. Unfortunately, that makes our roadways more dangerous for drivers.
Car accidents in Bremen occur for all sorts of reasons, including (but certainly not limited to) speeding, distracted driving, and drunk driving. These are all senseless and preventable causes of injury and death.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Bremen
Car accidents can certainly happen due to forces outside of any driver’s control – weather, roadway hazards, etc. However, the vast majority of car accidents are due to driver error. Some of the most common causes of accidents include:
Speeding: Bremen and surrounding Haralson County have a lot of rural areas. These “back roads” are not designed for speeding, yet many people treat them like interstates.
Distracted Driving: Distracted driving – particularly texting while driving – continues to be a problem across Georgia.
Drunk Driving: Even a small amount of alcohol is too much when you are driving. Drivers should never assume how drunk they are before getting behind the wheel. Drunk driving accidents are among the most catastrophic and deadly.
Running Intersections: Intersections are there for a reason. Drivers who do not stop at stop signs or who run red lights are putting themselves and others in danger. Intersection accidents often involve multiple vehicles and pedestrians.
Unsafe Lane Changes: This cause of car accidents is common on exit ramps and in intersections throughout Haralson County. Highways and I-20 have multiple lanes and drivers who are not paying attention can easily cause an accident.
What to Do After a Car Accident
No matter what the cause or how serious the accident is, there are some things that you should always do after a car accident in Bremen. We recommend the following:
Call 911: It is important to document the accident, especially if there is property damage or injuries. Getting medical care and assistance should be your top priority.
Get Medical Care: If you are injured, your next priority should be getting medical care. Even if you have an injury as seemingly simple as a headache, you should get medical care and document that your injuries follow a car accident.
Preserve Evidence: If possible at the scene, take photos of the accident scene and damage to the vehicles. If it is not possible, make sure you take photos of your vehicle wherever it is driven or towed to after the accident.
Contact Your Insurance Carrier: Your insurance (and some laws) require you to report a car accident within a certain amount of time. Make sure you know, and adhere to, this deadline.
Contact a Car Accident Lawyer: Car accidents are scary and expensive. By contacting a car accident lawyer in Bremen, you can find out your rights and options, including possibly the option to pursue compensation from whoever was at fault for the accident.
