Between 2008 and 2014, fatal car wrecks in Georgia experienced a steady decline:
Tragically, traffic fatalities in Georgia have been on the rise since 2014 with a slight decrease in 2017:
In 2017, seventy (70%) of all 1,549 lives lost in fatal car wrecks were caused by unsafe driving behaviors such as speeding, driving too fast for conditions, impairment or distractions, namely cell phones. Texting and driving and other cellular phone usage while driving are major concerns for the safety of all motorists on Georgia’s roads.
In addition to fatal wrecks, between 2012 and 2015, on average, 341,677 traffic crashes per year occurred in Georgia with an average of an average of 17,030 people suffering serious, often catastrophic personal injuries.
Unfortunately, car accidents are extremely common. Whether texting, other cell phone usage or a host of other factors are to blame, more and more, drivers are paying less attention while driving and these distractions can have life-changing consequences. Victims of car accidents can be left seriously injured or permanently hurt and often times financially devastated.
