Get Compensation for Your Atlanta Rush Hour Accident

A car accident occurs when a motor vehicle collides with another motor vehicle, and it can happen anywhere at any time. Because of the colume of traffic ont he road, many accidents happen during rush hour. Rush hour occurs during the morning when people are traveling to work and/or school from 6:00 A.M. to 10 A.M. and afternoon rush hour occurs when people are traveling from work and/or school from 4 P.M. to 6 P.M. If you have been injured in a car accident that occurred during rush hour, Georgia law allows you to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Your Atlanta car accident lawyer will determine the best steps to take to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
