Motor accident compensation claims are the most common claim made for personal injuries yet many victims see no reason to make a motor accident compensation claim for their injury as they believe it to be insignificant and not worthy of making a claim.

For instance they may have suffered minor whiplash injury, minor burns, lacerations and temporary muscle damage which constrict movement. These types of injury all qualify to make a motor accident compensation claim.

Motor Accident Injuries

Motor accidents can result in a number of injuries of varying severity. Regardless of the severity of the injuries you should not be left in any pain which has been caused by the negligence of another person.

It should also be remembered that it is not only the drivers of the vehicles involved who are able to claim for injuries sustained but passengers who are injured are also able to make a motor accident compensation claim on the third party insurance policy of the driver of the motor vehicle at fault.

If you, as the passenger, were aware of the driver being under the influence of alcohol or drugs then this may result in less compensation however it does not remove your right to claim. If the accident was not your fault and you have suffered personal injury you still may be able to make a motor accident compensation claim.

Below a few common causes of traffic accident claims which you would not be at fault:

  • When braking to avoid a possible collision the vehicle behind you does not react in time and therefore impacts with your vehicle causing injury to you.
  • Injuries caused whilst you are a passenger of a vehicle in a road traffic accident.
  • Impact caused by a vehicle in front of your own reversing.
  • Collisions caused by the late braking of another driver regardless of weather conditions.
  • Accidents caused by drivers on mobile phones, under the influence of drugs and alcohol, reading maps or generally not paying enough attention to the road.

Whiplash Injuries and Motor Accidents

The most common injury caused by the collision of a vehicle is whiplash which can leave the injured party with muscle pain in their back, neck and shoulders.  Back and spinal injuries can cause pain throughout the body through any number of movements essentially hindering the injured party in carrying out day-to-day duties such as working, walking, sleeping, standing, exercise and all other physical activiities.

If you have injuries from a road accident, whether permanent or temporary, such as whiplash then please complete your free legal enquiry form (on the left) to request legal help regarding your potential compensation entitlements.

The severity of injuries caused by road traffic accidents can vary greatly from head injuries, broken bones, lacerations to the body, muscle and nerve damage as well as psychological trauma and so it is not just severe injuries such as amputation, permanent disfigurement or disability which can be compensated for.

Evidence of the accident is imperative though and so the information collated regarding the accident time, location and driver at fault is as important as the details of the personal injuries inflicted on you.

Whilst at the scene of the accident you need to try to do the following:

  • Make sure everybody is alright and nobody has any serious injuries requiring urgent medical attention.  If they do, call an ambulance straight away.
  • Take note of the make, model and registration number of the other vehicle.
  • Take the name and address of the driver or the other vehicle or vehicles.
  • The other driver’s insurance details.
  • If possible take a photo of the scene, to help with any discrepancies that may arise regarding who is liable.  Most people carry a mobile phone with camera these days, so this should help with this.
  • Insurance companies are to be notified as soon as possible, and if need be you should notify the police, especially if liability is disputed or the accident is causing disruption on a busy road.
  • If there are any witnesses to the accident, obtain their details.
  • If you have suffered an injury as a result of the accident you need to seek medical advice as soon as possible.  In order to make a successful motor accident compensation claim you will need to have supporting medical evidence.
  • The key to making a successful motor accident compensation claim is providing your lawyer with as much information surrounding the incident as is possible.

Causes of road traffic accident claims include:

  • Collision with another vehicle such as a car
  • Collision with cyclists
  • Collision with motorcyclists
  • Falls from trying to avoid a vehicle
  • Falls from hitting a defect in the road
  • Pedestrian being hit by a vehicle
  • Road traffic accidents can result in personal injuries from cuts and bruises or minor whiplash to serious knee injury, muscle injury, brain injury or spinal injury.

In most road traffic accident claims, the insurance company of the person who was at fault pays compensation. Even in the case of an uninsured or 'hit and run' driver it is possible to claim personal injury compensation through government organisations established to compensate the victims of hit-and-run accidents, negligent, uninsured or untraced motorists.

In car accidents and road traffic accidents, injuries can occur to all parts of the human body, both internal and external.

Some of the most common car accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash Injuries
  • Spine Injuries
  • Back Injuries
  • Neck and shoulder injuries
  • chest injuries
  • arms and leg injuries
  • Head & Brain Injuries
  • Other Personal Injuries

Whiplash

Whiplash is most commonly caused by car accidents, but also triggered by a range of other incidents and occurs when the soft tissue in the spine is strained and stretched as a result of the body being thrown forwards in a sudden and forceful jerking motion.

Using a car crash as an example, being hit from behind would send the body forward whilst the head is thrown backwards. The force of the movement is beyond what nature built the body to endure, and so the muscles and the ligaments around the neck are likely to get abnormally stretched. The doctors would describe this as the hyperextension part of the injury.

The hyperflexion bit occurs when the head is then thrown forwards because the brakes have been instinctively slammed or the car has come to a crunching halt against another vehicle. This is likely to cause the neck to over-bend to such an extent that the chin strikes the chest, compounding the damage that has already been done.

This whole process usually takes place within less than a second, yet whiplash can cause weeks, months, or, in severe cases, even years of agonizing pain and unnecessary hassle.

It is possible to recover fairly quickly from whiplash injury, however, it is also possible to develop chronic conditions as a result of the whiplash, that may stay with you for the rest of your life. It is imperative, therefore, that anybody suffering any of the following symptoms in the days after a car crash seeks medical advice immediately. And remember, even accidents at low speeds can result in whiplash, so it’s best to get yourself checked out if you’re experiencing any of the following conditions and symptoms:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Numbness or pain in the arm or hand
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Irritableness

If you do find that you’ve been left with whiplash as the result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be well within your rights to make a compensation claim. You may be entitled to money to recompense you for any pain and suffering that you’ve been forced to endure, as well as reimbursement for loss of earnings and medical expenses.

Spine Injuries

Spine injuries arising from car accidents and motor accidents, are a life changing event and if the injury was sustained in a non fault accident you are rightfully entitled to claim personal injury compensation. When deciding to make a claim for personal injury compensation, it is important to ensure all your care needs and medical expenses and costs are met and the maximum amount of compensation is obtained for your future needs. By completing our FREE online Injuries Compensation Enquiry Form we will put you in contact with compensation legal specialists who will provide you with all the help and guidance you need to be able to successfully pursue the maximum compensation you are entitled to – at no cost to you.

There are two types of spinal cord injury - complete and incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury is one that at the point of injury has totally cut the passage of signals between the brain and the body. There is no function below the level of the injury - no sensation and no voluntary movement. Both sides of the body are equally affected. A person with an incomplete injury may be able to move one limb more than another, be able to feel parts of the body that cannot be moved, or may have more functioning on one side of the body than the other. With the advances in acute treatment of spinal cord injury, incomplete injuries are becoming more common.

If you (or someone you know) have suffered a spinal cord injury or back injury in a car accident or any other type of accident  that was not your fault, we can help you claim compensation for your injury and the pain and suffering it has caused.

Back Injuries

One of the most common types of accident resulting in a back injury is a car accident. A back injury can result the neck damage following a whiplash injury can include back and shoulder pain. A back injury can cause damage to discs, nerves, or muscles resulting in varying levels of discomfort, pain or disability depending on the severity of the injury.

There are many different medical costs and treatment expenses incurred as a result of back injuries. Some of these include: expenses for medical attention, pain relief, medicine, physical therapies (e.g. physiotherapy), surgery, retraining, physical aids, rehabilitation services and counselling.

If you (or someone you know) have suffered a back injury in a car accident or any other type of road accident that was not your fault, then we can help you pursue compensation for your personal injury and the pain and suffering it has caused.

Head & Brain Injuries

Head injury and brain injury accidents are usually a life altering event for both the person involved and their family. Each year thousands of people suffer from a head injury or brain injury as a result of a car accident, car crash or road traffic accident, and many of which result in a permanent disability.

Head injury, brain injury or any injury involving some type of blow to the head, is one of the most common types of injury following an accident. A head injury can range from relatively minor damage to the scalp and face, such as cuts and bruising, to more serious consequences involving damage to the brain.

In the case of a serious head injury or brain injury it can be many years for the full effect of the injury to be known. Unlike other injuries, brain injury can have a devastating impact on a person’s life - understanding and coping with the effects can be difficult for the individual and their loved ones and can put enormous pressure on the family and people around them.

It is important that any permanent or future problems that are likely to result from a head injury or brain injury are properly identified and that you receive the best possible award for your personal injuries compensation claim.

If you (or someone you know) have suffered a head injury or brain injury in a car accident or any other type of accident that was not your fault, we can help you pursue a successful claim for personal injuries compensation.

Regardless of the circumstances in which your injury occurred it is essential for you to seek specialist advice in order to ensure that all the issues relating to your care and assistance in the future are considered as part of your accident compensation claim.

Key considerations for a serious head injury or brain injury claim:

  • Rehabilitation and treatment costs
  • Adaptations to your home or the purchase of a new home
  • Current and future care and case management need
  • Future employment and possible retraining
  • Specialised equipment including transport and wheelchairs
  • Loss of consciousness, even for a brief moment, is one of the clearest indications that the brain may have been affected by a blow to the head. Other indicators of injury to the brain are where a person displays a confused state of mind, involving uncertainty about time, date, and location and/or a period of memory loss for the events surrounding the head injury or brain injury.

Any of these symptoms following a blow to the head should be taken seriously.

Symptoms that would cause concern after a head injury can include:

A bad headache that gets worse or doesn't go away within four to six hours after the head injury occurred
Drowsiness; especially if it lasts for more than two hours, or if the person is difficult to wake up. A certain amount of drowsiness is very common after a head injury, especially in young children

Confusion and disorientation

Feeling or actually being sick is common following a head injury, but if it is persistent or appears to be getting worse, it could be serious.

If you (or someone you know) have suffered a head injury or brain injury in a car accident or any other type of accident that was not your fault, we can help you claim compensation for the pain and suffering it has caused.

Other Personal Injuries arising from car and road accidents

Car accident and personal injury compensation claims can often involve complicated injuries which can have a major impact on the injured person’s life. If you, or a member of your family, have sustained a personal injury from a car accident that was not your fault, you are probably entitled to personal injury compensation.

To find out what compensation entitlements you could receive for your injuries please complete our no obligation, FREE Online legal Enquiry Form.

Some other common personal injury claims arising from car accidents and road accidents include neck injury and shoulder injury.

Neck pain can range from mild discomfort to a severe and excruciating pain. A common cause of neck injury is a car accident in which a sudden acceleration of the head, caused by a high speed impact, results in the tearing of muscles, ligaments, and other soft-tissues.

The common symptoms of a neck injury include:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Painful and stiff neck muscles
  • Numbness or tingling in the shoulders, arms and hands
  • Sudden and intense pain can cause irregular neck posture, making the head to roll to one side.

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. A common cause of a shoulder injury is a car accident which disrupts the soft tissues that protect the shoulder socket. The shoulder is vulnerable to injury because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain stable, the shoulder must be anchored by its muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, car accident or other road accident and suffered personal injury - either as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcycle rider or cyclist - you may be entitled to a personal injury compensation claim and any other losses if someone else was at fault.

If you have been injured in a car accident or road accident, then you may be entitled to significant compensation. To find out what compensation you could receive for your personal injuries please complete our no obligation, FREE online Injuries Compensation Enquiry Form, on the left.

Some other motor accident claims include:

  • Car Accident Claims
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Whiplash Injuries
  • Bicycle Accident Claims
  • Bus Crash Compensation
  • Taxi Crash Passenger
  • Untraced & Uninsured Drivers
  • accidents caused by Drunk drivers

If you have been injured in a car accident or road accident, then you may be entitled to receive a significant compensation payout.

Car and road traffic accident claims

A small proportion of car accident injuries may be life-threatening, or may result in permanent or temporary disability. However it is more common to suffer what is termed a less severe injury in a car accident, such as a whiplash injury. Even though it is classed as a less severe injury, whiplash can be incredibly painful and in serious cases the symptoms can last for months.

Car and road traffic accident claims If you have been involved in a car accident, collision, or other road traffic accident (RTA), you can testify to the disruption it can cause in your life. If you have also suffered an injury as a driver or passenger, that disruption can be far worse. You may have to take time off work to recover from your injuries, resulting in a loss of earnings.

If you have been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault you may have grounds to make a car accident claim and win compensation for the injuries you have sustained – as the driver, passenger, or, another third party involved in the accident, if you have been knocked down by a car, for example.

Passengers In A Car Accident

Passengers are innocent victims in a vehicle and can be from either, the fault or non-fault side. Passengers are not in-charge of the vehicle at hand. Therefore they can always make a successful compensation claim provided they have been to a hospital or visited a doctor.

A passenger can be in the form of, a husband, wife, child, cousin or a friend, at fault or not, they are entitled to make a car accident compensation claim.

Some of the more common causes of car accidents include:

• Speeding
• Failure to stop
• Failure to obey signs and traffic lights
• Failure to signal
•Driving dangerously for the weather conditions
• Driving under the influence (alcohol and drugs)
• Reckless driving
• Speeding,
• Lane changing
• Failure to give way
• Using mobile phones
• Car defects
• Broken traffic lights

If you or a loved one has been harmed or injured in a car accident, a car accident lawyer can help you determine if another driver's negligent actions were to blame.

Injuries range from psychological to physical injuries including: cuts, bruises, and soft tissue injuries to catastrophic injuries including head, neck, and spinal cord injuries, loss of limbs, orthopedic injuries and neurological injuries.

Types of Road Accidents

There are many types of accidents which can fall under the category of Road Traffic Accident including:

• Car crash and collision accidents
• Motorbike accidents
• Passenger accidents
• Bus and Coach accidents
• Pedestrian accidents
• Bicycle accidents

If you have suffered injuries as the result of any of the above types of accident, then you could be able to claim compensation for a road traffic accident.

Car Accident Compensation

As with all road accident claims, to be eligible to claim compensation, you must not be at fault. If however the accident was your fault, this would render you unable to claim compensation. Remember, passengers can always claim regardless of who was at fault.

Car accidents are one of the most common road traffic accident types, simply because of the sheer volume of cars on our roads today. One momentary lapse of concentration is all that is needed for a serious accident to occur.

Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is the most common injury from a road traffic accident. Whiplash can be caused by even a small crash, but its affect on your health and daily routine can be quite serious.

You should seek medical advice immediately after any crash, where you can be assessed for injuries, which is where you could be diagnosed with whiplash.

Passenger Accident Compensation

If you were a passenger of a vehicle involved in a collision with another vehicle, be it a car, bus, van, motorbike or even a taxi then you too could be eligible for compensation.

Your claim would be made against the insurance company of the person driving. This could be the person driving the vehicle you were in, or another party.

Compensation for a Motorbike Accident

If you have been injured in an accident on a motorcycle which wasn’t your fault, either by the careless negligent actions of another motorist, or riding on poor road conditions which should have been kept in a better state of repair, then you should be able to claim for compensation for your injuries, loss of earnings and any other expenses.

Bus Accident Compensation

Generally, busses are a safe way to travel, but are not immune to crashes and other types of accidents.

You could make a successful claim for compensation if you have been a passenger injured in a bus crash, or an innocent party a bus crashes into, or caused injury by the bad driving of a bus driver.

A collision is not necessary to make a claim for compensation, you could easily be injured by the bus driver braking hard, going round a roundabout too fast or another dangerous action.

Unless the driver has a reasonable defence for his or her actions, like they were responding to an emergency situation, then you should be able to claim compensation for your injuries. You should get the names, numbers and addresses of other witnesses, and if a large number of passengers were injured, you could have grounds for a group action claim. You should try and get the bus drivers identification number too.

Pedestrian Accident Compensation

These type of accidents can happen to anyone on foot on the pavement, crossing or on the road. You should be able to claim compensation if the accident happened in the last 3 years.

Being struck by a vehicle can have serious repercussions, especially if the vehicle was not obeying the speed limit. Claiming compensation for being hit by a vehicle could be simple, like if you were on the pavement and a vehicle mounted the pavement and hit you accidentally – or it could be a complicated process, like if you were attempting to cross the road between passing traffic, not on a pedestrian crossing, where blame could pointed in either or both directions.

Car Accidents

Car accidents, can cause serious injuries and even death, having a major impact on people's lives and the lives of people around them. Injuries can range from superficial cuts and bruises to serious injuries that cause permanent disabilities, amputations or disfigurement. Even the common whiplash injury can cause long term pain and suffering, and affect a person's ability to work and enjoy life.

If you have suffered an injury in a car accident caused by someone else or caused by negligence, such as a bad road surface or dangerous road, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation which can help you to rebuild your life. Injuries don't have to be major or life threatening for you to claim compensation because even a small injury can mean you having to take time off work, losing pay, having to fork out for prescriptions or private medical care, or coping with other out-of-pocket expenses.

Don't worry unnecessarily if the person to blame fled the scene of the accident or if it is found that they were uninsured because you might still be able to make a claim for compensation.

Whiplash Claim

Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissue in the neck and is a common injury caused by road traffic accidents, such as motorbike accidents and car accidents.

Whiplash injury occurs when the accident has caused the neck to be jolted or jerked violently one way and then rapidly the other way. If a vehicle suddenly decelerates, like in an emergency stop, or suddenly hits something, the sudden jerk can cause the soft tissue in the spine to stretch and strain, and the muscles, nerves and tendons of the neck to stretch. The whiplash injury can be caused by a sudden deceleration or impact at any speed, the vehicle does not necessarily need to be going fast.

The extent and severity of the whiplash injury depends on the type of accident and factors like whether the person was sitting with their head facing sideways and the distance between the head and headrest. Whiplash can vary from short-term discomfort or pain to long-term problems and even disability. Some people suffer with symptoms for years, others are lucky and the injury gets better quickly.

Other causes of whiplash injury include a violent blow to the head, perhaps in an assault, or repetitive damage to the muscles, tendons and vertebrae in the neck.

Whiplash SymptomsWhiplash injury is not always obvious straight away, so it is worth seeking medical treatment and getting a check-up even if you are not in any pain. It can be diagnosed by a thorough examination and by x-ray, which will also highlight if there are any fractures in the vertebrae of the neck.

Common symptoms of whiplash injury include neck pain, pain in the shoulders and arms, tingling in the arms, headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, temporary loss of memory, stiffness, muscle spasms, nausea, sickness and loss of mobility in the neck. Usually these symptoms clear up within a month and have no long-lasting effects. However, severe whiplash injury can have symptoms that go on for months and even years, and can cause psychological effects like depression and loss of libido.

Claiming Whiplash Injury CompensationYou should be able to claim personal injury compensation for your whiplash injury if the road traffic accident or blow to your head was not your fault. A whiplash injury can have a major impact on your life - long term pain, loss of earnings, the inability to carry on with your job, long term medical issues and other legal entitlements.

If you would like legal advice from a motor accident lawyer, then please complete your free legal enquiry form.

To be able to claim personal injury compensation successfully, you must make sure that your injury is recorded. Notify the police of the accident and make sure that you obtain the driver's details, witness details, registration numbers of all vehicles concerned and the insurance details of all people involved. You should also get medical attention for your injury so that you can get adequate treatment and also so that there is a record of your injury and the extent and severity of it.

Motorbike Accident Claim

Motorbike accidents can cause serious injuries and have devastating results because motorcyclists do not have the protection that car drivers and other drivers have. Motorcyclists are very vulnerable road users because they do not have the protective cage between them and the object they hit, and also do not have safety measures like seatbelts.

Motorcyclists can be injured by being crushed by other vehicles, by being catapulted into the air, by colliding with other vehicles, barriers or other hazards, by being thrown across the road or by going underneath lorries and trucks. According to statistics and accident records, the five most common motorbike accidents are caused by:-

A motorcyclist losing control of the motorbike.
Collisions with other vehicles at junctions.
A motorcyclist failing to negotiate a left hand bend on a country road.
A motorcyclist failing to negotiate a right hand bend on a country road.
Collisions while overtaking.

Any of those types of accidents can cause serious injury, long term health problems, amputations, disability and even death. The most common injuries sustained by motorcyclists are:-


"Road rash" - This is soft tissue damage which results from a motorcyclist sliding across tarmac, gravel or other road surfaces. This type of injury can be even more severe if the rider was not wearing adequate protection.
Head injuries - Obviously these can range in severity from whiplash type injuries and cuts to severe brain damage.
Biker's Arm - Damage to the nerves in the upper arm.
Spine and neck injuries.
Fractured pelvis.
Joint and limb fractures.
Facial disfigurement or scarring.

Although some motorbike accidents are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of the riders, many accidents are caused by the negligence of others. If you or a member of your family have suffered a motorbike accident which was someone else's fault, you should be able to claim personal injury compensation for the accident. This compensation can be useful in allowing you to get on with your life, to have the medical care you need and to make up for lost earnings or lost future earnings.

A specialist personal injury solicitor will be able to advise you on your particular case and let you know whether you do indeed have a case for personal injury compensation. Many personal injury lawyers will work on a no win no fee basis.

Georgia Accident Victims: Prior Medical Records as Evidence

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 08:55:00 EST

After six years of steady declines the number of traffic fatalities increased in the first nine months of 2012. A report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 25,580 people died in auto accidents from January through September compared to 23,884 during the same period in 2011.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

Georgia regulations are compatible with the Federal Evidence Code and favors both evidence admissibility and a belief that juries can interpret medical records.

Until recently, medical records needed to be heavily redacted if they were introduced as evidence. All opinions from health care providers were considered hearsay and therefore inadmissible. Under recently incorporated rules, accident victims' prior medical records can be reviewed by a jury. Victims who had no prior medical issues can submit medical records from after an accident and the jury can determine if the accident was the proximate cause of the injuries.

The law creates more of a problem if an accident victim has an injury history. For example, if a victim had been seeing a chiropractor prior to an accident it may be difficult to prove that an accident caused the victim's severe back pain.

Who Is Responsible in Georgia DUI Accidents?

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 08:24:00 EST

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

According to Georgia law, different parties may be held accountable in a DUI accident. These parties may include:

  • Bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs can be held responsible for serving alcohol to visibly impaired drivers (Georgia Dram Shop Act);
  • Bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs can be held responsible for serving alcohol to underage patrons (Georgia Dram Shop Act);
  • Passengers or companions who allow an intoxicated person to drive;
  • Companies that hire drivers who have histories of DUI violations.

Risks for Drowsy Driving in Young Drivers

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 08:18:00 EST

In 2009, approximately 30,000 people were involved in car crashes due to drowsy driving and 730 died, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHTSA estimates that about 16 percent of all vehicular fatalities and approximately 13 percent of accidents requiring hospitalization involve drowsy drivers.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to a study by the Georgia Institute of Global Health, young drivers who slept less than six hours nightly had a higher accident rate compared with drivers in the same age group who slept longer.

Young drivers who slept less during the weekends had a higher accident risk than their peers who slept more. Additionally, the sleep-deprived drivers also had an increased rate of single-car accidents.

Drowsy driving gradually reduces reaction time in a sequence known as micro-sleeps where the driver may not even realize that he has fallen asleep. Drowsy driving also reduces alertness, concentration, motor skills, decision-making and stimulus processing.

According to a study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, drowsy driving is among the most underestimated accident causes. The naturalistic study focused on 100 cars involved in accidents and revealed that driving while fatigued contributed to as many as 20 percent of all accidents. The study found that drivers between 18-20 had the highest risk of being in a drowsy driving accident.

Georgia Teen Charged with Minor Consumption of Alcohol

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 08:13:00 EST

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

A 17-year-old Georgia student was arrested for underage consumption of alcohol after he drove a riding lawnmower into a neighbor's house. The arrested teen was driving the mower with a friend sitting on the hood. He was observed riding over a bush, jumping a curb and crashing into a rock pile after he had previously driven into the side of the neighbor's home.

According to the police report, the teen repeatedly cursed at the officer and began fighting when he was placed under arrest. He was charged with obstructing a police officer, disorderly conduct and underage alcohol consumption.

Georgia has a zero tolerance law for underage drinking and driving. Though the illegal BAC for drivers over 21 years old is 0.08 percent, drivers under 21 can be charged with DUI with a BAC of 0.02 percent. Teen drivers can be charged with DUI in a minor accident if a chemical test indicates that they have a small amount of alcohol in their system.

Georgia Drivers Benefit from Seatbelt Laws

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 08:10:00 EST

According to the Department of Transportation (DOT), there were 23,640 fatalities on Georgia's highways between 1994 and 2008. The most urban area, Fulton County, had 124 deaths. Clayton County highways were ranked third in the greatest number of fatalities with 48. Georgia ranked in the top 20 states for highway fatalities.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after a car accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident in Clayton County you should discuss your case with a car accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to Georgia law, an accident victim who was not at fault for the accident is protected from any blame for his injuries even if he was not wearing a seatbelt. This is because Georgia law does not want to burden juries with the responsibility of determining the extent of an accident victim's injuries in relation to a seatbelt's use (or lack thereof).

Georgia is one of 32 states with standard seatbelt laws, also known as primary belt laws. In a standard seatbelt law state, a law enforcement officer may stop a vehicle and issue a citation if the officer observes an unbelted passenger. Secondary enforcement laws are those where an officer may issue a seatbelt citation only after stopping a vehicle for another offense.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 15 percent of Georgia drivers do not wear seatbelts. It also reports that seatbelt use reduces accident-related injuries and fatalities by 50 percent. The CDC estimates that a person thrown from a vehicle has over a 75 percent chance of sustaining fatal injuries.

Study Suggests Improved City Designs Reduce Accidents

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 08:05:00 EST

A report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 25,580 people died and many more were injured in 2012 auto accidents from January through September. Being prepared before an accident can enable a victim to obtain all the necessary information that will be helpful to their case.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to a recent Carnegie Mellon University study, a smart traffic signal system could reduce stress-related and distracted driving-related accidents. The study offered suggestions as an ancillary report by the World Resources Institute (WRI) concluded that there is a progressive migration from rural areas to already congested cities.

The Carnegie Mellon University study suggested ways to improve commuter transportation and to improve traffic safety:

  • Create smart signals and smart streets—A system of smart signals would be installed, which included motion sensors, vehicles, and smart traffic lights. Researchers found that on average the smart signals reduced travel times by 26 percent, and reduced stop times by 40 percent. Researchers found that this reduction could have multiple effects, including improving air quality by reducing emissions by 21 percent from reduced idling time, reduced driver stress, distractions, and related accidents. Smart roads could also melt snow and evaporate rain water to make roadways safer in inclement weather.
  • Create effective transit options—Mass transit systems, including light rail and bus rapid transit, would reduce roadway congestion. Improved options would also remove impaired drivers from the roads and would present an option of vehicle-free living.
  • Improve pedestrian zones—Designated pedestrian areas would make walking a more enticing option. Improved urban design that creates pedestrian walkways, some above roadways, would reduce traffic.

Proving Medical Causation in Georgia Injury Cases

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 08:01:00 EST

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

Causation is one of the four elements that must be proven in a Georgia injury case. Insurance defense attorneys frequently question whether evidence exists to prove that an accident was the proximate cause of the plaintiff's injuries.

The Georgia Supreme Court established that, "expert evidence is required where a 'medical question' involving truly specialized medical knowledge (rather than the sort of medical knowledge that is within common understanding and experience)" is needed to establish a causal link between the defendant's actions and the plaintiff's injury. Cowart v. Widener, 697 S.E.2d 779 (Ga. 2010).

The court held that "even in simple negligence cases, plaintiffs must come forward with expert evidence to survive a defense motion for summary judgment, where 'medical questions' relating to causation are involved." An experienced Clayton County injury attorney can present evidence from a case that is supported by expert testimony to prove causation.

A plaintiff must prove all elements of a negligence claim, including causation. This burden includes introducing evidence that allows a jury to conclude that the defendant's action or inaction likely caused the plaintiff's injury.

Georgia Receives Federal Distracted Driving Grant

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 08:56:00 EST

Distracted driving accidents killed 3,328 people in 2012 according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Data show that drivers under age 20 are among the highest risk group.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident involving a distracted driver enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving a distracted driver in Clayton County you should discuss your case with an auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving causes over 6,000 fatalities and over 515,000 people being injured annually. These figures are estimates based on data collected from police reports; federal studies indicate that the numbers could be much higher when considering accidents and injuries that are not reported to the police.  Deaths from texting-related accidents are estimated to be around 16,000.

Georgia's rigid distracted driving ban earned it a $1.6 million grant from the NHTSA. All drivers in Georgia are prohibited from texting while driving. The law forbids using a cell phone, computer, email or instant messaging device, text messaging device, PDA or similar wireless device to write, send, or read text data while driving. There are exceptions for first responders, drivers responding to emergencies and drivers who are fully parked.

Georgia's laws to prevent distracted driving are "primary laws" which enable a law enforcement officer to detain a driver without witnessing any other violation.

Congress made grants available to states that enacted laws allowing police to stop drivers for texting while driving. It was the first time such grants had been offered and 38 states applied for the funding. Seven states and Guam were awarded a total of $5.6 million.

Driver Tracking Devices Admissible in Court

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 08:20:00 EST

According to a 2009 Georgia Department of Transportation mileage report there are 54,746 statewide lane miles and almost 120 million daily vehicle miles traveled. Road congestion and deficiencies create hazards and danger to all auto travelers.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

Some of the determining methods used by auto accident experts include physical evidence, charts, computer simulations and a black box data recorder or event data recorder (EDR). Similarly, insurance company tracking devices record driving data and can be admissible in court.

The insurance company "telematics" devices collect driver behavior data. Progressive Insurance offers the Snapshot device and similar devices are offered by State Farm and Allstate. The Snapshot device records the following:

  • ·        vehicle speed;
  • ·        time of day when the device is connected and disconnected from the vehicle;
  • ·        miles driven while connected;
  • ·        acceleration rate;
  • ·        braking rate.

The Snapshot device does not contain GPS technology and cannot indicate vehicle location or whether the recorded speed exceeded the posted speed limit. The device also cannot record who was driving a vehicle.

The State Farm device also records speeds in excess of 80 mph and turns (left and right turns), though it also does not have GPS capability.

Make sure you have access to all the available evidence after an automobile accident including insurance company telematics devices and potential black box information. After an accident, meet with an auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can assist you in every stage of your case including obtaining the available evidence.

Potential Insurance Issues for Georgia Auto Accident Victims

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 08:16:00 EST

A report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 25,580 people died and many more were injured in 2012 auto accidents from January through September. Being prepared before an accident can enable a victim to obtain all the necessary information that will be helpful to their case.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to an 18-month investigation by CNN, the largest insurance companies are following a take-it-or-leave-it strategy for minor-impact auto accidents with soft tissue injuries. The investigation revealed that Allstate and State Farm have adopted policies where they offer a small percentage of the total damages, gambling that a victim will settle for something rather than pursue a trial.

Insurance companies often make settlement offers quickly after an auto accident in hopes that a victim will want immediate compensation. Frequently, this offer is far lower than a victim's total expenses and will preclude additional payment.

Auto accident victims can expect to encounter some of the following from insurance companies:

  • Disputed claims—The insurance company may accuse a victim of insurance fraud or may not agree to pay for all expenses.
  • Quick settlement offer with an expiration date—An insurance carrier will likely want to settle the claim quickly, before the accident victim knows the full extent of her injuries and potential long-term expenses or necessary medical treatments. The offers often come with a deadline and a warning that failure to accept may mean that the victim sees no compensation until the issue is resolved in court.
  • Rejected medical treatments—Some medical procedures may be disputed as cosmetic or unrelated to the accident or related injuries.

If you or someone you know has been hurt in an auto accident, meet with a Clayton County auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can obtain the relevant evidence including police reports.

Drowsy Driver Crosses Four Lanes; Kills Mother and Child

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 08:05:00 EST

In 2009, approximately 30,000 people were involved in car crashes due to drowsy driving and 730 died, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHTSA estimates that about 16 percent of all vehicular fatalities and approximately 13 percent of accidents requiring hospitalization involve drowsy drivers.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

A 28-year-old mother and her 3-year-old child were killed and a 1-year-old was seriously injured after a 34-year-old driver crossed four lanes and struck their car. The mother was waiting to turn right at a stop sign when the other car crossed four lanes and crashed directly into the driver's side of her car. The mother died at the scene and her children were hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. The 3-year-old died a day later.

The driver was charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle. Police reports indicated that driver fatigue was responsible for the accident.

If a death is caused by the negligence of another then the decedent's family may be entitled to legal relief through a wrongful death lawsuit. You should hire an experienced Clayton County wrongful death attorney if you will file a lawsuit on behalf of a family member who died due to another's negligence. If you or someone you know has been hurt in a car crash, call a Clayton County auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith for a free legal consultation.

Study—Drunk Driving Fatalities Are Under Reported

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 08:55:00 EST

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers. A 2006 study by the NHTSA estimated that there is one drunk driving fatality in the United States every 30 minutes.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

According to a new study by the U.S. National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, drunk driving fatalities may be underreported nationwide. Researchers analyzed data from the NHTSA and death certificates for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels of those killed in auto accidents between 1999 and 2009. Upon cross-checking the researchers noticed a discrepancy: data from the NHTSA showed that 21 percent of those killed in auto accidents had a BAC above the legal limit, only 3 percent of death certificates cited alcohol or drunk driving as a cause of death.

A possible explanation is that it can take several days to get a BAC reading from a blood test and death certificates are usually filed within five days of a fatality. States also have different rules about checking for drunk driving in accidents; only about half of the states automatically require checking a driver's BAC after a fatal crash.

Seeking Damages in a Georgia DUI Auto Accident Case

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 10:24:00 EST

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers. A 2006 study by the NHTSA estimated that there is one drunk driving fatality in the United States every 30 minutes.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

According to a Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) study, DUI claims often lead to a more significant recovery than other accident claims. It is theorized that when a case goes to trial, sympathetic and angry juries are more likely to rule in a victim's favor and grant harsh punitive damages. This may be because drinking and driving is not only viewed as a negative stigma but also because the risks are widely known.

Georgia law allows auto accident victims to recover compensatory damages for lost wages and medical expenses. These may include the cost of hospitalization, emergency room bills, ambulance charges, prescription costs, prosthetics or assistance-rendering devices (such as wheelchairs, walker, canes, etc.), and physical therapy. It also allows for punitive damages, which punish the responsible party for his wrongdoing. The study indicated that jury awards and settlement amounts in DUI accidents are statistically higher than other auto accidents.

Proving Fault in a Georgia Pedestrian Accident Case

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 08:20:00 EST

According to United States Department of Transportation data an average of over 60,000 pedestrians are injured in accidents with vehicles in the United States each year. The Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) published a study that showed most pedestrian injuries occur at night.

If you are injured a Clayton County pedestrian accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith can review the incident and advise you of your legal rights.

Accident evidence is the key in effectively filing a claim in a Georgia pedestrian accident case. Georgia law entitles an injured pedestrian to collect damages if he is less than 50 percent at fault for the accident.

Compelling evidence illustrating that a pedestrian was not at fault determines the success of a claim. Pedestrians who are distracted by a cell phone, wearing earphones or who were jaywalking at the time of an accident have a more difficult case than those who were alert and had the right-of-way at the time of the accident.

Evidence can be obtained that will help in a pedestrian accident claim. This can include:

  • Police reports, including toxicology results (if tests were administered by the police)
  • Eyewitness accounts
  • Accident scene photographs, including skid marks
  • Security camera videotapes or still photos from a traffic cam

Victims should seek the assistance of a Clayton County pedestrian accident attorney to protect their rights by securing police reports, eyewitness testimony and physical evidence and to deal with insurance representatives. Victims should call the Law Offices of Shane Smith for a free legal consultation.

Paralyzed Cyclist Receives $5.75 Million Settlement from City

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 08:48:00 EST

Accident victims should understand the basic issues covered in personal injury law and what it can protect. Personal injury lawyers can protect victims' rights and help them receive compensation for their injuries.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an accident you should discuss your case with a personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

A 37-year-old deliveryman in another state sued a city after he was struck by a falling tree branch while riding his bicycle. The branch fell more than 20 feet and struck the man in the back, paralyzing and him and requiring him to have 24-hour assistance for the remainder of his life.

According to the plaintiff, the city had received multiple complaints about the tree in question, including one just six weeks prior to the accident. Attorneys for the plaintiff contended that the city dramatically reduced its tree-trimming services prior to the incident, thereby impacting the city's ability to inspect and address the tree's issues.

The city claimed it had sent inspectors to the tree twice. The plaintiff's attorneys argued that the first inspection never took place and the second lasted only two minutes, an insufficient amount of time to determine the tree's problems.

Prior to the trial the parties reached a settlement for $5.75 million.

Man Cited for Eating while Driving in Georgia

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 08:32:00 EST

Distracted driving accidents killed 3,092 people in 2010 according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. It is estimated that an additional 416,000 people were injured in automobile crashes involving a distracted driver.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after a car accident involving a distracted driver enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving a distracted driver in Clayton County you should discuss your case with a car accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a man from another state was cited in Georgia for "driving while eating." The man was allegedly stopped while he was eating a double quarter-pounder with cheese.

Georgia law states that drivers shall not "engage in any actions which shall distract" them from safely operating their automobile. In this case, the citation did not indicate that the driver showed any signs of distracted driving.

O.C.G.A. Section 40-6-241 states:

A driver shall exercise due care in operating a motor vehicle on the highways of this state and shall not engage in any actions which shall distract such driver from the safe operation of such vehicle, provided that, except as prohibited by Code Sections 40-6-241.1 and 40-6-241.2, the proper use of a radio, citizens band radio, mobile telephone, or amateur or ham radio shall not be a violation of this Code section.

According to the AAA 2014 Report to the Legislature, distracted driving is any activity that might divert a driver's attention away from driving. These types of distractions include the following actions while driving:

  • Texting
  • Talking on a cell phone or smartphone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming or applying makeup
  • Reading
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player or MP3 player
  • Using maps or a navigation system (GPS)
  • Watching a video

If you or someone you know has been hurt by a distracted driver, meet with a Clayton County auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can assist you in every stage of your case including obtaining the available evidence.

Cruise Ship Claims have a One Year Statute of Limitations

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:23:00 EST

Georgia law requires commercial and private property owners to maintain safe properties for people who are legally on the premises. Most properties are subject to safety codes or regulations requiring the property owner or manager to prevent negligent exposure to harmful or injurious situations. Premises liability claims may hold these property owners or managers liable when someone is injured due to hazardous, unsafe or dangerous conditions.

If you have suffered a serious injury on someone else's property, a premises liability attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith can review your accident and injuries to determine if you have a reasonable case against the property owner involved and advise you of your legal rights.

Cruise ships have a responsibility to prevent dangerous conditions on board that can cause a passenger to suffer serious injury. The cruise ship and its parent company can be liable when a cruise ship accident occurs because of poor maintenance, improperly trained employees, inadequate safety equipment or emergency precautions, or negligent security.

Cruise ship tickets often include a provision that requires claims to be filed within one year of the incident. Additionally, such suits may need to be filed in a specific state and county. Some cruise ships also require that any cases must be filed in federal court.

Cruise ship accident victims should call a Clayton County premises liability attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith to schedule a free legal consultation.

Football-Related Traumatic Brain Injury

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:51:00 EST

Post-concussion syndrome, a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by an impact to the head, may not be identified without expert medical attention following an accident. A Clayton County brain injury lawyer at the Law Office of Shane Smith can pursue a Georgia personal injury claim.  

Most TBI claims are concussion-related; such injuries can range from mild to severe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.4 million people sustain a concussion each year. Over 5.3 million people need lifelong or long-term help with daily activities due to TBI.

According to the NCAA Injury Surveillance Center, approximately 10 percent of college football players sustain brain injuries. The growing awareness of the long-term impact of traumatic brain injuries has led the NCAA Football Rules Committee to protect players by penalizing helmet-on-helmet tackles and targeting. Additionally, every football program must have a concussion-management plan which includes monitoring, testing and rest. Equipment manufacturers have also developed high-impact helmets to offset concussion triggers and stabilize rapid head jerking.

Mild TBI symptoms can include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Depression, anger or personality alterations
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Short-term memory loss, forgetfulness and/or attention deficits
  • Impaired sight
  • Impaired judgment
  • Speech and/or communication problems
  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing
  • Sleep disorders

The Law Offices of Shane Smith will aggressively pursue a brain injury case to get the victim fair compensation. Call Clayton County brain injury lawyer Shane Smith for a free consultation.

23 Percent: Teens Drive Under the Influence of Alcohol/Drugs

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 10:34:00 EST

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

According to a survey conducted by Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), 23 percent of teen drivers admit to driving while under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. Nearly half of the teens who admitted to drinking and driving said they did not think that alcohol, marijuana or other drugs affected their ability to drive safely. Over 10 percent of teens surveyed admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol in the past three months. Additionally, over 90 percent of the teens said their schools had programs or policies in place to deter illegal behavior, including the use of security guards or breathalyzers at school functions.

Other studies indicate that up to 90 percent of teens consider themselves "safe" or "cautious" drivers.

Georgia has a zero tolerance law for underage drinking and driving. Though the illegal blood alcohol content (BAC) for drivers over 21 years old is 0.08 percent, drivers under 21 can be charged with DUI with a BAC of 0.02 percent. Teen drivers can be charged with DUI in a minor accident if a chemical test indicates that they have a small amount of alcohol in their system.

Impaired Driving May Be Caused by Prescription Drugs

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 08:13:00 EST

Driving under the influence (DUI) refers to the criminal act of operating an automobile while impaired by alcohol or drugs. While most impaired accidents are attributable to alcohol, impairment from drugs accounts for approximately 18 percent of automobile fatalities. DUI fatalities have declined over the last ten years but deaths caused by people impaired by prescription or illegal drugs have increased.

According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) survey, 16.3 percent of 5,900 screened drivers tested positive for legal or illegal drugs. However, merely testing positive for drugs may not be enough to prove impairment.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after a car accident involving an impaired driver increases a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident involving an impaired driver in Clayton County you should discuss your case with an auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

DUI task forces and organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have raised awareness about drunk driving dangers. However, as prescriptions for pain-killers, psychotropic medications and other drugs have increased so too has the frequency of drug-impaired driving.

Unlike alcohol-related cases there is no universally accepted measurement by law enforcement or the medical community regarding drug quantity in the bloodstream that causes impaired driving. Legal prescription medications can impact people in a variety of ways. They can also have different effects when mixed with alcohol or when taken on an empty stomach. Stimulants can decrease a driver's ability to judge distances, while anti-anxiety medications reduce alertness leading to slower reactions.

An experienced Clayton County auto accident attorney can research whether an at-fault driver was taking a prescription with codeine or other opioids that can negatively impact alertness. Medical records can be obtained to determine if a driver had a prescription that could have impaired his driving.

If you have been involved in a car accident caused by an impaired driver please contact an auto accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can assist in every stage of your case.
