Why You Should Call a Car Accident Attorney Right Away

After you have received all emergency medical treatment, contact Ross & Pines, LLC to discuss the facts of your accident case in detail. In the event of serious injuries or wrongful death, an insurance company may simply try to pay you a small settlement for your loss, instead of the full amount that you deserve.

Do not wait until after you have spoken to an insurance company. Insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests. Instead, they are looking to pay you as little money as possible to go away. That is why you should never discuss the extent of your injuries with the other driver's insurance company.

If the insurance companies treated you fairly, you would not need a lawyer. But insurance companies do not treat people fairly and sometimes, it takes a fight to get them to do what they know is right.

Establishing Negligence in a Car Accident Case

It is important that after an accident, you work to establish negligence. Determining who is actually at fault for an accident can make all the difference in your case. With the assistance of an Atlanta car accident attorney from Ross & Pines, LLC, you can take the next steps to hold the person who caused your injuries responsible for their actions. When you retain the representation of our firm, our team can look at your entire situation and gather as much evidence as possible to help establish negligence.

In order to help bring the wrongful party to justice, the following will be compiled:

  • Police reports
  • Incident reports
  • Video evidence
  • Accident statistics
  • Medical records
  • Witness statements
  • Expert insight

Establishing negligence is vital to ensuring that an insurance company does not try to under-compensate you or deny you coverage due to the actions of the person who caused your injuries. Insurance companies are businesses committed to maximizing their own profits and adjusters often deny, devalue, or delay claims that are submitted to their company.

Recovering The Money That You Deserve

We know the value of conducting a thorough investigation, especially when the person who injured you is unwilling to admit that it was his or her fault you were injured. Once we obtain all necessary evidence to prove negligence, we will use it to build your case and recover the money that you deserve.

With a car accident claim, you can pursue the following types of damages:

  • Medical treatment, surgery, hospital bills, etc
  • Repair to your vehicle and other property
  • Lost wages from missed time at work
  • Long term care for serious/permanent injuries
  • Pain and suffering/mental anguish

While our first step is to pursue a fair settlement, we know that insurance companies are not always willing to provide you with the full compensation you deserve. When they do not, we will be ready to take your case to the next level. We know what to do to get you the results you are looking for and the full compensation that you deserve.

What Happens If I Share Fault for My Accident?

Georgia is a “fault state” when it comes to car accident cases. This means that the party responsible for an accident pays damages, usually through an insurance carrier. Most accidents, however, are often caused by more than one party. Oftentimes even the injured party is found partly responsible for an accident. In these cases, Georgia follows a “comparative fault” rule. This means that an injured party is eligible to file a claim even if they are partially at fault as long as the other party is more at fault.

In a comparative fault claim the percentage of responsibility a defendant is found to bear will also be deducted from their overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 15% at fault for the accident that caused your injuries your total compensation awarded to you by the court will also be reduced by 15%. Car accident law in Georgia can be complex and confusing. Our team of Atlanta car accident attorneys will guide you through your claim while fighting for the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Since most insurance settlements state specifically that the amount laid out in the agreement will be the only compensation paid, once you agree to a settlement amount it’s usually difficult to recover any more compensation. If you have already signed an agreement, you may still have options. Call our firm today to learn how we can help you and what next steps you can take.

What Should I Do After a Car Accident in Atlanta?

If you were involved in a car accident there are a few important steps you can take to help ensure that you and other drivers are kept safe. Following these important steps can also provide you an advantage should you pursue legal action against the person who caused your injuries. If you or a loved one is injured in a car crash, you should always work with an experienced car accident attorney in Atlanta.

4 Steps to Take After a Car Accident Infographic

Follow these 4 steps to take after a car accident in Georgia:

  • Step One: Don't admit to fault. Georgia is an "at-fault" state, which means that whoever is at fault is liable for paying recovery fees to any other parties involved in an accident. Even if you think that you are the one who made the mistake, reserve your comments until you speak with your insurance company directly.
  • Step Two: Document everything at the scene. Make sure that you get the other party's contact information, license plate number, and insurance company. Additionally, if there were any witnesses at the scene, collect their contact information, as well.
  • Step Three: File a report with your insurance company as soon as possible! Every state has strict guidelines for the time-limit in which you are eligible to file a claim. Contact your insurance company as soon as you can to ensure that you are within the required time limit.
  • Step Four: Contact a car accident lawyer in Atlanta as soon as possible. Insurance companies are aggressive and filing an injury claim due to negligence is a complicated process. Our attorneys will help you receive maximum compensation by doing everything in our power to defend your rights against insurance companies.

If you have questions about how to file a car accident claim in Georgia, contact our attorneys and receive a free consultation to discuss your case. We will defend your rights and walk alongside you through this difficult time!
