Auto Accidents – Georgia Law

All vehicle operators on Georgia’s interstate highways, county, city and state roads, are required to obey the Uniform Rules of the Road. These rules are primarily contained in Title 40 of the Official Code of Georgia. Rule violations often involve O.C.G.A. § 40-6-49, “following too closely,” O.C.G.A. § 40-6-181, “speeding,” and O.C.G.A. § 40-6-390, “reckless driving.” A violation of one or more rules of the road constitutes a breach of a legal duty, and may give rise to a claim against the at-fault party for negligence.

Car Accidents Caused by Negligence

Victims of a vehicle accident must prove that the other driver was negligent by breaching their legal duty to follow the rules of the road, and that the violation resulted in damages (i.e. injuries). Finally, a lawyer has to be able to prove that the damages or injuries claimed were “caused” by the negligence of the other driver. Often, during litigation, the lawyer for the at-fault party will claim that the injuries claimed were not the result of the car wreck but, instead, were the result of some preexisting injury or condition. This situation often occurs in cases involving neck or back injuries in which the injured party may have experienced prior neck or back pain or degenerative disc disease, or aging of the spine. In most cases, we are able to defeat such defense arguments through medical records and/or testimony from one or more of the injured party’s doctors.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
