Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
Atlanta car accident lawyer Bruce Millar said today that many of the Labor Day weekend car crashes in Georgia were likely caused by driver error.
The Georgia State Patrol said in a news release that 10 people died in eight different car wrecks, and 230 people were injured in 373 car crashes during the August 31 to September 3 holiday weekend.
Troopers arrested 240 people for driving under the influence (DUI) over the Labor Day weekend and issued 983 citations for seat belt violations, the release said.
“Every loss of life in a car accident is tragic, and in most cases, it is an unnecessary tragedy,” said Millar, a veteran Atlanta car accident lawyer and managing partner at Millar & Mixon, LLC, in Atlanta.
“Our investigations of car accidents, as well as news reports and government research, show that speeding, drunk driving, fatigued driving, distracted driving or some other carelessness or recklessness by a driver is too often the root cause of car wrecks,” he said.
The Atlanta personal injury lawyers of Millar & Mixon, LLC, pursue legal claims for people in the Atlanta area and across Georgia who have been injured or lost family members in car wrecks.
Millar said that people seriously injured in an auto accident that was another driver’s fault may seek to recover compensation for present and future medical bills, property damage to their vehicle, lost income and, in many cases, their pain and trauma.
“Anyone hurt in a car crash should protect their rights by contacting an experienced Georgia car accident lawyer who can review their case and explain their legal options,” he said.
