Failure to Maintain the Correct Lane

Failure to Maintain Lane

Information from our Knowledgeable Marietta Car Accident Lawyers

The Official Code of Georgia Annotated 40-6-48 describes every motorist's responsibility to safely maintain their own lane while driving. The rule of the road is even more important now given the increased number of distracted drivers with cell phone usage. Recent studies are alarming as to how many people admit to using their phones while operating a vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been hurt by a motorist due to their failure to maintain their lane, you may have a viable injury claim against them. At Jones & Swanson our experienced Marietta car accident attorneys have recovered more than $50 million for clients who have been injured, bereaved, or wronged. If you have been harmed in a dangerous road accident, we are ready to assess your legal options.

Failing To Maintain & Negligence

A driver’s failure to maintain their lane is negligent under Georgia law and creates a case of action for personal injury damages. When drivers don’t act responsibly, we hold them accountable. You have rights under the law when you are injured, call us and we will help you preserve those rights.

Common causes for failure to maintain include:

  • Impaired driving (drugs, alcohol, fatigue)
  • Distracted driving (smartphones, radios, etc.)
  • Failure to properly signal a lane change
  • Failure to follow road signs
  • Failure to follow traffic cones, barrels, or other hazards

If one of the above circumstances contributed to your car or truck accident, then the time to take legal action is now. Our firm is ready to assess the circumstances of your crash and, if necessary, take decisive steps towards securing the compensation you deserve. Get in touch with us today.
