Who Is At Fault for Your Accident?

In order to secure compensation for injuries and other damages sustained in an automobile collision in Georgia, you must show that you are less than 50 percent at fault for the crash. Georgia follows what is known as the “modified comparative fault,” or shared fault, rule. Under this rule, you may still be able to collect compensation if you were partially at fault for an accident, as long as the other driver is determined to have been more at fault.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents?

Some of the most common causes of car accidents in Georgia include:

  • Distracted driving, including texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
  • Reckless driving, including speeding and street racing
  • Engaging in road rage behaviors
  • Following too closely (“tailgating”)
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Fatigued driving and/or falling asleep at the wheel
  • Failing to stop at red lights or stop signs
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in Georgia?

This list is not exhaustive; if you believe your accident was caused by another motorist engaging in any of these or other negligent behaviors, reach out to our Athens car accident lawyer as soon as possible. In most cases, you only have two years from the date of the accident to bring a personal injury claim.
