Single-vehicle accidents often cause personal injury

When motor vehicle collisions are reported, most people expect to hear of a crash between two or more vehicles. However, many single-vehicle crashes occur in Georgia and across the country on a regular basis. Victims in a recent crash may choose to file personal injury claims after suffering injuries in such a collision.

According to authorities, the driver was traveling north on Interstate 75 when she apparently veered off the road. In an attempt to correct the situation, the driver jerked the wheel, which caused her to lose control of the car. Though the vehicle returned to the road, it then crossed to the opposite side before leaving the road. It then hit an embankment and continued forward before coming to a stop after colliding with a tree.

County emergency medical services responded to the accident. Five people were in the car at the time of the crash and all suffered injuries. No details on the victims' injuries were released. However, the driver and all four passengers were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Even in a situation like this with a single-vehicle accident, victims may still be able to file personal injury claims against the driver responsible. By successfully proving a driver negligent in civil court, victims could receive monetary damages that could help pay for medical bills and any other financial losses related to a collision. Anyone injured in a car accident in Georgia could consult an experienced personal injury attorney to learn more about filing such a claim.
