A serious car accident can cause serious injuries. An experienced car accident attorney can help.
Georgia law provides a remedy for individuals who are injured in catastrophic car accidents due to the negligence or unlawful behavior of another driver.
If you, a family member, or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident that was not your fault, there are several steps you need to take to protect your family and seek justice.
First, of course, is to seek the medical attention you need and to document the treatment you receive in order to calculate your total expenses later. It is also important to diagnose the full extent of your injuries and how they will affect you in the future.
The second thing you should do is file a police report or make sure the accident has been reported. This preserves evidence that you may need later.
Finally, one of the most important things you should do is contact one of our experienced car accident attorneys and determine whether to file a car accident lawsuit against the party at-fault and seek compensation for your injuries.
Under Georgia Law, a person who is a victim of a serious car accident can file a lawsuit against the other driver who is responsible for causing the accident, who is generally referred to as the “at-fault” driver. The law also allows passengers to file lawsuits against the driver of the car they are traveling in if the driver is negligent and causes an accident.
In order to hold the at-fault driver accountable, a good car accident attorney will make a formal demand for compensation from the driver or their insurance company. Sometimes that means filing a personal injury lawsuit in court, sometimes it means negotiating with the insurance company. Either way, you will have to prove that the accident was the other driver’s fault and that the law entitles you to compensation.
In Georgia, a driver is responsible for a car accident if he acts negligently or violates the law while driving in a way that causes an accident. There are many ways in which a driver can act negligently or drive unlawfully, including:
Our experienced car accident attorneys have seen it all, and we are confident we can help you prove that you have been the victim of a serious car accident, caused by another driver’s negligence, and that you are entitled to justice and fair compensation.
If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, it’s important to have an advocate by your side who knows the law in Georgia and can help you seek fair compensation for your injuries. Our car accident attorneys have over twenty years of experience doing just that.
We can help you:
Our attorneys have been helping people seek justice for over twenty years. Judges, opposing counsel, and insurance companies know we have a reputation for fighting hard for our clients and, more importantly, winning in the courtroom.
We are also different from car accident lawyers that will encourage you to take the insurance company’s first or second settlement offer in order to make a quick buck. When we accept your case, we will maximize your leverage by preparing as if we are taking the insurance company to trial. We believe that’s the best way to get a fair offer from the insurance company and to get you the full value of your case if the insurance company won’t settle on your terms.
We also only take a limited number of cases so we can put as much time and effort as possible into your case. And when you call our firm to get an update on your case or ask a question, you’ll be talking to one of our car accident attorneys, not a case manager.
