Negligence & Fault in Car Accidents

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Our Atlanta Auto Accident Lawyer
Helps Prove Fault and Negligence in Car Accidents

Car accident cases are among the most common types of cases that personal injury lawyers handle.

However, the fact that they are common doesn’t make them simple, even if it’s obvious to you that the other driver should be held responsible for your injuries. These cases involve several complex legal and factual issues revolving around fault and negligence. If you’ve been injured in a car accident and think the other driver should be held responsible, the best thing you can do is contact an Atlanta auto accident lawyer as soon as possible.

About Negligence in Georgia Car Accident Cases

For most car accident cases, proving that the other driver breached their legal duty to you means proving that they were negligent. Negligence is generally defined as anytime someone fails to take reasonable care to prevent an accident. This sounds straightforward, but it can often be difficult to distinguish carelessness from typical behavior that wouldn’t be deemed unreasonable. It can be even more difficult in the context of a car accident with vehicles moving at high speeds and in different directions. Our Atlanta auto accident lawyer team has outlined common examples of negligence in car accident cases:

  • Driving while texting
  • Speeding
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Failing to yield
  • Following too closely or rear-ends
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Tailgating
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driving too fast for road or weather conditions

Of course, this is not an exhaustive list. An experienced Atlanta auto accident lawyer can evaluate your case and identify whether negligence was involved in your accident.


Determining Fault in An Atlanta Car Accident

In order to win in a claim for damages after a car accident in Georgia, you have to prove the following three elements:

  • The other driver owed you a legal duty to drive in a safe and reasonable manner.
  • The other driver breached that legal duty.
  • You were injured as a result of the breach.

In most car accident cases, proving the first element is fairly simple. Every driver has a legal duty to other drivers to drive safely and obey the traffic laws. The critical element in most cases is proving that the other driver breached their legal duty to you. After an accident consult with an Atlanta auto accident lawyer to learn about the full range of your legal options.
