Motor Vehicle Accidents
While no one ever wants to think about being in a car crash, they happen all the time and in many cases result in severe injuries or even death. According to statistical data released by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in Georgia, in 2015 there were more than 385,000 traffic crashes in Georgia with over 36,000 of these crashes taking place in Gwinnett County alone. In far too many of these cases, careless and reckless drivers were to blame for the injuries and fatalities suffered by occupants of the vehicles and other parties.
