Negligent Driving in Georgia
The vast majority of traffic collisions in Conyers and around the country are caused by negligent drivers, meaning that the event could have been avoided if that driver (or multiple drivers) had operated their vehicles properly. Sometimes negligent driving is speeding, other times it is following too closely to the vehicle ahead. A detailed traffic collision investigation carried out by law enforcement will reveal who was at fault. This party is called the negligent party, and can be held liable for the other party’s damages. Sometimes, there is some confusion about who caused the crash, and other times multiple parties will be found negligent. It is necessary to have an attorney at your side who can successfully argue your side of the story and prove that you either did not cause the crash or that your actions only played a very small role in the crash, and that the other party should bear the majority of the blame. The more at fault you are found, the less compensation you will be able to receive, as explained below.
