Decatur Car Accident Statistics
Decatur is a medium-sized city in Georgia with a population of approximately 20,086 in 2013. According to information from City-Data.com, the population increases by 12,688 (63.1%) during daytime population due to commuting. That also comes with an influx of traffic, and a higher risk of car accidents.
There were four fatal car accidents reported in Decatur in 2013. Of these accidents, one involved an intoxicated person and five people lost their lives, one of whom was a pedestrian. These numbers are slightly below the 2012 reports, which had a total of six fatal accidents and eight persons killed.
Decatur Injury & Legal Resources
Victims of Decatur car accidents are often transported to area hospital like the following:
- DeKalb Medical North Decatur on North Decatur Road
- Emory University Hospital on the Emory University campus
When filing an injury claim, a Decatur Police report is one of the most important pieces of evidence to provide as a means of proving liability for the crash. After you have allowed a few days for the report to be completed and entered into the system, you may request a copy by mail for a $5 fee. You can download the motor vehicle accident report request form here and mail it to Deputy Chief Keith Lee at 420 W. Trinity Place, Decatur, GA 30030.
The DeKalb County Courthouse in downtown Decatur is home to the DeKalb County Magistrate Court and the Superior Court of DeKalb County. These courts handle a variety of civil actions, including personal injury claims and small claims. If your car accident damages cannot be settled through an insurance claim, Brauns Law can take your claim to court and petition for a fair resolution and compensation.
