Acworth Car Accidents
Acworth is a city located in Cobb County, Georgia and considered to be part of the Atlanta Metropolitan area. Nicknamed “The Lake City,” Acworth is located along the southwestern banks of Lake Allatoona and Lake Acworth at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. As of the 2010 Census, Acworth had a population of 20,425.

The major highway in Acworth is a two-lane road that runs throughout the city and that is known as “Main Street” or “Old 41.”  The New highway 41 also passes through Acworth, as does State Route 92.  On these roads, as well as on other local roads within Acworth, car accidents happen every day.

If you or a loved one is hurt in a car wreck, you may be frightened about who will be responsible for covering the costs of your losses, especially if your injuries are serious or if a family member is killed. Georgia law puts the responsibility for car accident damages on the driver who caused the auto accident and an Acworth Car Accident Attorney can help you to take legal action to obtain the compensation the law provides.  

Your Acworth, Georgia Car Accident Claim
Georgia laws allow Acworth car accident victims to file a personal injury lawsuit against drivers responsible for causing a car wreck. Car accident claims may go to court for resolution or a claim can be resolved out of court as a result of negotiations between the accident victim and the insurance company of the driver responsible for the crash.  When a case settles, the insurance company pays the accident victim in exchange for the victim signing a binding release of liability.

In either a settlement or a lawsuit, the driver who hurt you should cover your medical costs, lost income/wages, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering damage and emotional distress damages. If the accident was a fatal one, then the driver responsible for the crash should compensate surviving family members for wrongful death damages including loss of companionship and lost financial support. The more serious the injury, the greater the damages that the responsible driver should pay.
