"Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state. This means that if you are injured in a car accident, you can still recover damages from the at-fault driver even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
For example, if you are found to be 25% at fault for an accident and your damages total $100,000, you will only be able to recover $75,000 from the at-fault driver.
In order to recover damages under Georgia's modified comparative negligence law, you must prove that the at-fault driver was negligent. Negligence is defined as a failure to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. This means that the driver must have known or should have known that their actions could have caused harm to others, but they did not take steps to prevent it.
Some common examples of negligence in car accidents include:
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Failing to yield the right of way
Driving without insurance
If you have been injured in a car accident in Georgia, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options. An attorney can help you understand the law and how it applies to your case, and they can represent you in negotiations with the at-fault driver's insurance company."
