Car, Truck and Tractor Trailer Accident and Injury Resources

Practice Area photoCumming, Georgia is the county seat of Forsyth County, located in Northeast Georgia. Cumming sits in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains and the Appalachian Trail. Cumming is situated approximately 40 miles north of Atlanta.

Cumming was formerly a sleepy country town that was caught up in the suburban flight out of Atlanta and the subsequent exurb movement. Because of its hilly terrain, its proximity to Lake Lanier and its easy access to and from downtown Atlanta and Buckhead via Georgia Highway 400, Cumming has grown exponentially over the past 30 years. The Cumming city population is estimated to be approximately 6,000, but the unincorporated areas of Forsyth around Cumming are home to over 100,000. The Cumming city motto is "Gateway to Leisure Activities".

Cumming is named for William Cumming, a United States Army colonel in the War of 1812. Cumming was founded in 1833 as part of a Cherokee Land Lottery. Cumming benefitted greatly from the Dahlonega gold rush in the 1830s but was likewise hurt by the discovery of gold in California in 1849. Cumming and Forsyth County remained rural until the 1990s.

There are many festivals and leisure activities in Cumming. Every October, Cumming hosts the Cumming Country Fair and Festival. Lanierland Music Park is a country music venue that has hosted many of the biggest names in the business. For hikers, Sawnee Mountain Preserve is home to several hiking trails, picnic areas and an outdoor amphitheatre.

Because of its proximity to Georgia 400, Cumming residents are vulnerable to tractor trailer accidents and auto accidents. With its interstate layout and accompanying intersections, traffic lights and cross streets, Cumming and the Georgia 400 area can be dangerous. Moreover, its mountain roads are favorites of motorcycle riders and have given rise to hundreds of motorcycle accidents over the years.

Boating accidents on Lake Lanier are another major danger for Cumming residents. Boating under the influence of alcohol is unfortunately a major problem.
