PTSD and lawsuits related to car accidents

Georgia residents who have been injured in a car accident caused by another motorist might also suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. It is possible to file a lawsuit that asks for compensation for their physical injuries as well as the PTSD, but there may be some additional challenges involved in proving the PTSD and its relationship to the accident.

How to handle hit-and-run accidents

Hit-and-run accidents are occurring more frequently on the roads in Atlanta. Many people who suffer injuries in this type of accident are struggling to understand their circumstances. They may not know what actions they can take to improve their situations because they may not have much information about the motorists who hit them. They may also be struggling with severe injuries that can interfere with their ability to manage their situations.

A disturbing increase in drugged driving

Some Georgia drivers might be on the road while under the influence of drugs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 20 percent of drivers tested positive for drugs in 2014. Informally, law enforcement is seeing an increase in opioid overdoses and drugged drivers. Some Midwestern and Pacific Northwest areas in particular are seeing a rise in the use of heroin and opioids.

How distracted driving impacts everyone

Georgia residents may be accustomed to seeing drivers on their cell phones as they pass by. Although using social media or sending text messages may seem normal these days, it is dangerous to do so while driving. The number of traffic fatalities increased from 2014 to 2015, which reversed a trend dating back to 2007. In 2016, it is believed that there were more traffic deaths than any other year since 2008.
