Georgia Personal Injury Lawyers

Many have noted that Georgia personal injury lawyers represent clients from Augusta to Columbus and from Valdosta to Atlanta and Rome plus many smaller towns around the state. Steeped in the Deep South, Georgia personal injury lawyers have to pay special attention to the history of laws and civil rights in the state as well as keep abreast on current happenings as well.

In 1883, a small group of lawyers established the Georgia Bar Association. This new professional organization proved beneficial to its members, but since membership was not required of all Georgia lawyers, it lacked power. "Because of its nature as a voluntary association not comprised of all the lawyers in this state," explained 1946 Georgia Bar President Charles Gowen, "the Georgia Bar Association was unable to address significant needs including uniform discipline throughout the state and the passage of important legislation."

By 1925, a trend toward unification became evident in state bars across the country. The Georgia Bar Association struggled for conversion over the next 40 years, enlisting the aid and support of many of Georgia's most prominent legal minds. The bill to create an integrated bar was finally passed by the Georgia House and Senate in 1963, a move motivated primarily by the concept of regulated self-discipline. "The capstone of the State Bar," said 1964-65 Bar President Hugh M. Dorsey, Jr., "is the power of self-discipline, which has been sought so long and is needed so badly. For the first time, all of us can and will be held to answer to the public for the conduct and character of our profession, and here we must not, and cannot, fail."

In June 2007, there was an email in circulation concerning new traffic laws in California. In July 2007, the same email circulated stating that these new traffic laws now applied to Georgia as well. This had Georgia personal injury lawyers on the alert as any vehicular cases brought to them would most likely be a part of these new laws.

These new laws included:

  • Driving in the car pool lane illegally. The posted highway signs state that the fine will be $271. The email stated that for a first offence the fine would be $1068.50. For a second offence, that fine would be doubled and it would be tripled for a third offence. After the fourth offence, the person's license would be suspended.
  • An incorrect lane change, which would constitute crossing lanes on solid lines or crossing through an intersection would be fined $380.
  • Individuals blocking an intersection would be fined $485.
  • Driving on the shoulder would be fined $450.
  • Cell phone use must be limited to the "hands-free" option and as of July 1, 2007, the fine for talking on a cell phone through a construction zone will be doubled.
  • For passengers over the age of eighteen not wearing seatbelts, both the driver and the passenger will be fined.
  • A charge of driving under the influence will be automatic jail time, which will stay on the individual's record for ten years.

The Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety issued a statement saying that this email is not true. According to them, the email is being adapted to different states and then being circulated. The Governor's Office of Highway Safety has made it very clear that no such changes have been made to their current traffic laws. This is good news for the Georgian personal injury lawyers as any clients coming to them after being involved in one of these infractions will have the same consequences and fines as before.
