Negligence and Compensation

Driver negligence is one of the most common causes of car accidents in Valdosta. Negligence can take many forms, including

  • Driver inattention or driver distraction — Distracted driving is the current leading cause of motor vehicle accidents in the country today. Despite all our laws attempting to cut down on distracted driving, accidents caused by distracted driving continue to increase.
  • Alcohol or drug-impaired driving — Impaired driving is unlawful, and yet nearly one-third of traffic fatalities in the United States involve a drunk driver. Drunk driving is a serious form of driver negligence as well as being a criminal offense.
  • Failing to follow traffic laws — The unlawful disregard for basic traffic laws is one of the most common causes of car accidents in Georgia each year.
  • Reckless or aggressive driving — behaviors like speeding, tailgating, unsafe lane changes or other aggressive behaviors cause countless serious accidents and injuries each day.

Proving Negligence in a Car Accident

Negligence is the failure to exercise a degree of care toward others to minimize the risk of injuries and the standard by which liability is determined in most personal injury cases.

There are four elements of negligence that must be proven in any personal injury claim. These are:

  • Duty of care — All individuals using our roads owe each other a duty of care to drive as safely as any reasonable person would do under similar circumstances.
  • Breach of duty — It must be proven that the negligent party did not fulfill their duty of care toward the injured party.
  • Cause — It must be proven that the breach of duty caused the accident in question and resulted in injuries.
  • Damages — It further must be determined that the injuries resulted in monetary damages.

Because Georgia is a comparative negligence state, even if you are up to 50 percent to blame for the accident, you may still be able to collect compensation for your injuries in the proportion that the other party is to blame. This can pay for any medical expenses, lost wages, personal property damage, or other costs associated with your injuries.

If you have been injured in a car accident, it is critical to get the assistance of an experienced Valdosta car accident lawyer to understand your rights to compensation under the law.
