Driver errors can lead to deaths in Georgia car accidents

Accidents can result from a wide variety of causes; however, most result from driver errors. Unfortunately, even the smallest errors can lead to car accidents that result in injuries or even deaths, leaving families to pick up the pieces. This is true for a case in which a 58-year-old Georgia man lost his life after he was involved in a weekend crash.

Fatal SUV accidents may have been caused by product defect

SUV accidents always have the potential to cause injuries or even death, but the chance of serious or fatal injuries is often exacerbated when the vehicles are defective. In a recent Georgia accident, a boy was killed when the Jeep in which he was riding burst into flames after being rear ended by another vehicle. Fiat Chrysler may now have to answer for his death and a number of others that occurred in similar SUV accidents. 

Hit-and-run car accidents in Georgia can have deadly consequences

Leaving the scene of an accident, also called a hit and run, is against the law. Even so, many people choose to run from the scenes of car accidents out of fear of the consequences. In a recent case, a Georgia woman was sentenced to four months in jail and five years probation after pleading guilty to the charge she faced due to her involvement in a 2010 hit-and-run accident. 

Car accidents kill 2 in Georgia over recent weekend
