Georgia Car Accident Attorneys
Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury. Even though many auto accidents are minor fender-benders, they nonetheless result in a shocking number of severe injuries and deaths. An experienced car accident attorney will not let you walk the road to recovery alone.
Car and Automobile Accidents
Georgia is known to have some of the most dangerous highways and interstates in the country. Even if you are running errands, dropping the kids off at school, or on the way to work down the road, a car wreck can happen anywhere at any time. Southside Injury Attorneys understand that even minor car wrecks can cause unseen injuries and every case should be investigated seriously.
Our expert car accident lawyers have handled hundreds of car accidents involving multiple vehicles, tractor trailers, drunk drivers, motorcyles, and more. We handle the stress of dealing with insurance companies, the other driver, and bills while victims can focus on recovering.
An Experienced Car Accident Attorney Can Help You
- Establish liability by preserving evidence and interviewing witnesses
- Ensure you receive the proper medical care as you recover from your injuries
- Help you understand the law, including statutes of limitations
- Collect the necessary medical records and help you document your injuries properly so that you receive full compensation
- Ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled
- Negotiate a settlement that takes into account all future medical and financial needs
The INSURANCE COMPANY after your car wreck
Contact your own insurance company ASAP, even if it is the other driver’s fault. You more than likely have a mandatory reporting requirement in your insurance contract and if you need them to step in and help pay for things, they may very well have an exclusion if you don’t tell them soon enough.
In addition to disability, victims often experience substantial pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. Sadly, many car accident victims never receive the full amount of damages to which they are entitled. Very often, car accident victims, unaware of the full value of their claims, accept the first offer from their insurance company.
The insurance company wants to settle your case as soon as possible and for as little money as possible. After an accident, you need time to determine just how serious your injury is, what medical treatment or physical therapy you need, and how much your lost wages will be. Therefore, it is crucial to retain a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible to achieve maximum compensation. Never talk to the insurance company prior to obtaining legal representation.
Don’t accept a cash offer from the other driver’s insurance company without talking to a car accident attorney first, and definitely not before knowing the true nature and extent of any injuries. The insurance adjuster is trying to save as much money as possible for the insurance company and will probably give you a low ball figure on the value of your claim.
Often they will try to get you to settle before you have finished treatment. That would be a terrible mistake. You may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering and lost quality of life. Also, an insurance adjuster may ask you for a recorded statement. Say “no thanks” to the recorded statement and refer the adjuster to your car accident attorney if you have one or tell them you want to talk to an attorney first if you don’t have one. This statement may be used against you if the case proceeds to litigation.
