Every year a new fleet of new drivers emerges on our streets and highways: students getting their driver’s licenses for the first time and people moving to Georgia from out of state. Unfamiliarity with the roads and traffic patterns may cause a number of motor vehicle accidents. Other causes and contributing factors in car accidents include:
- Driver distraction
- Hazardous road conditions, including construction zones and weather conditions
- Driver complacency
- Traffic congestion
- Excessive speed
While we respect the challenging job that police have in responding to accidents day in and day out, we also know the importance of conducting our own investigation after a client has been injured in a car accident or truck accident. Our investigation and case preparation may include the following steps:
- Examining the scene of the accident, whether it occurred on I-85, 985, Sugarloaf Parkway, Satellite Boulevard or any other roadway
- Photographing details at the scene such as shrubbery, skid marks and broken glass
- Examining the vehicle as soon as possible, before key evidence is lost
- Interviewing eyewitnesses as soon after the accident as possible
- Locating all potential sources of compensation
- Evaluating medical reports
- Maintaining ongoing communication with doctors during the recovery period and study of prognosis
- Collaborating with professionals such as life care planners and economists in order to put a documentable dollar value to the tangible losses of the injured person and his or her family
