In metro Atlanta every day, numerous people are injured in traffic accidents. Unfortunately, many of the accidents involve injuries requiring transport by ambulance to the hospital. These cases often involve the need for a metro Atlanta based personal injury lawyer to help an injured party recover for medical bills, pain and suffering, missed work, and other damages.
Last week, Emory University and Grady Memorial Hospital were awarded nearly $4 million by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to study Atlanta car crashes and subsequent injuries (click here to read Emory's press release). They will collect data on the performance of vehicles that are six years old or newer, as well as data on injuries requiring transport to Grady by ambulance or helicopter.
Hopefully, this five year study of over 300 patients will result in useful data to make metro Atlanta safer for Georgia drivers.
