Cumming Car Accident

Attorney Representing Parties Harmed in Cumming, GA Vehicle Collisions

Cumming, Georgia is a small city located in the middle of Forsyth County. Established in 1833, Cumming and the surrounding towns have gone from sleepy rural communities, to one of the most desirable places to live in the State. Because of the growth, there are thousands of trips taken each day on Cumming area roads. Car wrecks are common in Forsyth County, with hundreds happening each year. Speed and distracted driving are two of the most prevalent reasons, but the failure to understand simple traffic rules is also a contributing factor. Newly licensed drivers cause most of the vehicle accidents. There are certain roads in Cumming that are more prone to accidents. Georgia 400, also known as U.S. Highway 19 is the main thoroughfare through Cumming for residents headed north from the city. Many high-speed accidents happen on 400 that sometimes result in catastrophic injuries. State Roads like Highway 9 (Atlanta Highway), and Highway 20 (Buford Highway), are the roadways where more intersection accidents occur. Curvy surface roads like Spot Road and Post Road cause dangerous conditions when drivers are entering the roadway. If you have been injured in a Cumming car accident, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help.

Obtaining a Police Report Following a Car Accident

Once an accident has occurred, it is important to have a police report filed and then obtained. Your car accident attorney can get a copy of the report on your behalf, or you can obtain one on line. The City of Cumming has its own police department, but requests for police reports should be made via a third party, buycrash.com. Reports are available approximately one week after the accident and can be requested either via mail or in person. The cost of the report is $5.25.

Recovering Damages Following a Car Crash

In order to recover damages in the State of Georgia, the plaintiff must prove the defendant was negligent. Negligence has four factors that must be established. Did the defendant owe the plaintiff a duty of care? Was that care not provided? Were there damages as a result? These are all things your Cumming area vehicle accident lawyer can address on your behalf. It is also important to have expert legal advice in the event the defendant’s lawyer tries to establish comparative negligence, stating the plaintiff is at least partially at fault.

If you were injured in a lawsuit, you are entitled to recover the costs for repairing your vehicle, a rental car, the cost to cover your medical expenses. You are also entitled to recover money for lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life and even for pain and suffering. If the accident was fatal, surviving family members are entitled to file a wrongful death claim against the defendant.

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
