According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fatal Georgia car accidents cost an estimated $1.55 billion a year. That places Georgia among the top 10 states with the highest medical expenses and work loss costs associated with deadly car accidents.

To put things in perspective, the cost to the nation is $41 billion per year.

Of course, the true cost of a fatal Georgia car cash comes not in the aggregate expenses of medical costs and lost wages. Instead, the true cost rests with the survivors of each person who is killed. The true cost comes from the lost love, support and companionship. It comes in the form of mourning parents, children and spouses.
