Atlanta car accidents and trucking accidents are common both on I-75, I-85 and on local city streets. I-75 is a 355 mile section of the interstate that passes through the cities of Atlanta, Dalton, Macon, Marietta and Valdosta. Beginning in the extreme north west corner of Georgia, I-75 passes through the Tennessee border at Chattanooga and interchanges with I-59 for traffic heading east or west. It then makes a straight shot south through Atlanta where it intersects in full interchanges with I-20 and I-85. I-75 meets the northern loop of I-285 and branches off south east and south west around Atlanta. Just south of Atlanta I-75 meets the southern part of this giant loop as I285 and I-75 interchange just outside of Atlanta. Driving through metro Atlanta Interstate 85 meets up with I- 75 and I-20 to form the downtown connector where you’ll encounter some of the most congested and dangerous sections of the interstate system in America today. Atlanta is right in the middle of one of the most traveled trucking corridors in the country. Many travelers and truckers from the north travel the corridor from Nashville and Chattanooga through Atlanta to south Georgia or into Florida. Busy interstates in Birmingham, Nashville and Atlanta process hundreds of thousands of vehicles per day, and see numerous catastrophic accidents each day. Interstate I-75 and I-85 are some of the busiest interstates in the country, and processes more than 500,000 vehicles each day. Many of these trucking, tractor trailer and semi accidents are caused by weather conditions, distracted drivers, speeding drivers, drunk drivers, fatigued drivers and aggressive drivers. Many of the Atlanta trucking accidents cause significant injuries or deaths.
Causes of Car Accidents in Atlanta
Thousands are injured each year in car accidents in Georgia. There are various causes of a Atlanta car crash including:
- Driver fatigue: Those with disrupted sleep and those that drive commercially for a living are at a higher risk of suffering from driver fatigue. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sleep deprivation has an effect on driving similar to impaired driving. Slow reaction time, ability to make sound decisions and falling asleep behind the wheel are signs of sleep deprived driving.
- Weather and road conditions: The seasons bring challenges to roadways across the country. Fog, ice, floods, snow and heavy winds create driving hazards and limit visibility for safe driving. Additionally, poor road conditions contribute to accidents because drivers have less time to slow down to prevent a crash.
- Driver distractions: Some common distractions are passengers, cell phones, satellite radio, hands-free devices and outside distractions.
- Drunk Driving: Hundreds are killed each year in accidents involving alcohol and drugs in Georgia.
What to do After An Auto Accident
- Immediately file an accident report with the police, sheriff or highway patrol, if the agency has not done so at the scene.
- Write down the name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number and driver’s license number of any and all persons involved in the accident. Record names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses.
- Obtain photographs of the accident scene, all vehicles involved (before repairing) and any visible injuries to the parties involved, such as cuts, bruises, and scars.
- Do not discuss the accident or your injuries with anyone, with the exception of your doctor and your attorney.
- Do not consent to a recorded statement or sign any document without first reviewing it with your attorney. Innocent statements made by you attempting to assist an insurance adjuster can easily be misinterpreted and used to deny or minimize your recovery.
- Immediately seek medical attention and tell your doctor the nature and extent of your pain and injury, and how the injury occurred.
- Track Your Expenses.
A strong claim clearly outlines the financial impact of your accident. Keep records of your:
- time away from work,
- mileage driven to doctors’ appointments,
- rental car expenses,
- medical bills,
- and any other expenses your accident has caused.
