The Leading Causes of Accidents in Fulton County

Hi, I'm Riah Greathouse from Greathouse Trial Law. Let's delve into the leading causes of car crashes in Fulton County. Year after year, three primary culprits stand out:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving

The encouraging news is that these causes are preventable. A significant concern arises from the staggering number of traffic fatalities attributable to drunk driving annually. Shockingly, nearly 25% of yearly traffic fatalities involve one or more intoxicated drivers. Driving under the influence not only jeopardizes other drivers and pedestrians but is also illegal in Georgia. The legal blood alcohol content limit in the state is 0.08, making it unlawful to exceed this threshold.

Another pivotal factor contributing to car crashes is driving at excessive speeds concerning the prevailing road conditions. Adhering to appropriate speeds according to weather conditions significantly reduces the likelihood of accidents. Always comply with posted speed limits, as these regulations are in place to ensure traffic flow and safety for all drivers.

Georgia enforces hands-free driving laws, making it illegal to operate a vehicle while holding a cell phone or other technology. The Hands-Free Georgia Act dictates how drivers can use electronic devices, emphasizing no-touch requirements while driving.

In the unfortunate event of a car accident causing injury, consulting an attorney is pivotal. At Greathouse Trial Law, we specialize in navigating insurance negotiations and probing responsible parties to seek legal redress.
