Price of car accidents high both financially as well as in lives

It is likely that the majority of people reading this blog either drove, or were a passenger in, a vehicle within the past few days. With so many people on the roads throughout the nation it is inevitable that some vehicles will be involved in accidents. Sometimes these accidents result in serious injury or death. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control, they rank in the top 10 reasons why people of all ages die.

In addition to costing lives, fatal car accidents are also financially expensive. In Georgia in 2005, these incidents cost a total of $1.55 billion. Much of those costs are the result of work loss. This makes sense when one considers how many young people lose their lives in car accidents each year.

Since these costs can be reduced by preventing crashes entirely, there are things drivers of all ages can do to stay safer on Georgia roads. The adoption of comprehensive graduated drivers licensing systems, strong child passenger safety policies and a primary enforcement seat belt law may help to keep people alive.

People who lose a loved one in a car crash that is the result of negligence on the part of another may be able to seek compensation for the loss of their loved one’s life. These cases are understandably often difficult for people to pursue. For this reason it is important that those who do file such a claim do so with the assistance of a lawyer who has an understanding of the process to make it as easy as possible for them.
