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.

When it comes to determining fault in car accidents, Georgia is what is known as a comparative negligence state. This means that even if you are partially responsible for an accident (up to 50%) you may still be able to receive compensation for your injuries. The amount of compensation you receive will be proportionate to the fault of the party involved in the accident. This compensation can help cover expenses such as bills, lost wages, damage to personal property, and other expenses related to your injuries.

If you have been injured in a car accident it’s important to seek guidance from our Valdosta car accident lawyer. We can help you fully understand your rights and what you are entitled to under the law. Our team will also be able to help you discern the unique ins and outs of your specific accident and case.
