Safe driving should be a primary concern every time you get behind the wheel, but on weekends extra caution is always advised.
The Georgia Department of Transportation receives more accident reports on weekends than during the week. While rush hour might seem a more logical time for numerous accidents, the lower speeds that are often encountered in rush hour tend to keep serious accident numbers low, even if minor fender benders increase.
The best way to avoid accidents is to drive the speed limit, give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination, don’t drink and drive, and leave yoru cell phone turned off while behind the wheel.
Alpharetta personal injury attorney David Van Sant works for accident victims and says his firm fields an increased number of calls on Monday mornings. Weekend accidents make up a significant number of cases his firm handles, and clients of the firm were typically injured due to no fault of their own.
Personal injuries cause people to miss work, realize expensive medical bills, and even minor injuries can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Don’t pay the bill for an accident that was not your fault. If you are injured in a car or truck accident in Georgia, contact David Van Sant for assistance in ensuring you have everything you need to recover from your injuries without footing the bill.
