Many accidents have occured in Georgia because of talking or texting on the phone while driving. This is called distracted driving, and the injuries resulting from these types of accidents can be terrible! If you have been hurt in a car accident because another driving was texting while driving, or was distracted in some other way, then you may have a potential personal injury case.
When you decide to pursue a Georgia injury claim, you will need to establish that someone else acted in a careless or reckless manner. All types of driving behaviors can lead to this, both legal and illegal ones. No matter the type, if it is found to be the direct cause of your accident and injuries, that driver can be found at fault.
