Getting in a car accident on a Gwinnett County major road is different from an accident that takes place on a standard street. Anytime vehicles are traveling very quickly and collide with an obstacle, there are greater damages, and nowhere do cars collide at higher speeds than on interstates, turnpikes, and highways.

If you have been injured in a high-speed car wreck, a Gwinnett County highway accident lawyer may be able to help you recover compensation. A personal injury attorney could establish a negligent driver’s liability and work to hold them accountable for your injuries.

Common Fact Patterns Surrounding Highway Accidents in Gwinnett County

The most common major roadways for accidents in Gwinnett County are highways 85 and 316, but collisions could happen anywhere where vehicles are moving very quickly and then bottleneck or stop.

One of the most common causes of highway accidents is aggressive driving. Instances of road rage, speeding, or tailgating could quickly lead to disastrous consequences at high speeds.  Drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and dangerous road conditions may also lead to highway crashes

Heightened speed limits play a role when it comes to these kinds of accidents and their aftermath. The faster a driver is traveling, the quicker their reactions must be in response to any form of danger or change in the road condition. As a result, accidents that may be avoidable at lower speeds become inevitable on major highways.

How to Avoid a Highway Accident

With fewer instructional signs and basic laws to follow, drivers must still abide by the speed limit and adjust their speed to the surrounding traffic. Above all, drivers need to be patient. If traffic is moving slowly, motorists still need to stay in their lane, maintain a safe distance from the car in front of them, and avoid overtaking cars in the shoulder or breakdown lane.

Drivers should also sure that they are not distracted themselves. They should avoid using their cell phone, checking their navigation excessively, and make sure that they are not tired or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. At highway speeds, even a few milliseconds of distraction could cause a serious crash.

What to Do After a Gwinnett County Highway Accident

The speed of traffic impacts the steps the person should take immediately following an accident. If you are involved in a car accident on a highway, you should move yourself and, if possible, your vehicle out of the way of traffic as quickly as possible and immediately call 911. If a passenger or another driver is injured, you may also need to help them to safety.

Once the police arrive, it is important that you answer their questions to the best of your ability. Do not, however, acknowledge fault for the accident or admit to any traffic violations. Police reports become crucial pieces of evidence in most car accident cases, and any admission could be detrimental to your claim.

Finally, it may be wise to contact a Gwinnett County highway accident lawyer in the hours or days after a collision. An attorney could help collect additional evidence, evaluate your case, and begin the process of filing a legal claim to recover compensation.
