Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries
Under Georgia law, the at-fault driver is liable for injuries and property damage caused by the accident. Compensation may be recovered from the at-fault driver’s insurance company for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses related to the accident. Our attorneys can help you file a claim with your insurance company and pursue compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.
Car accidents may result in serious injuries, such as:
- Head or brain injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
Many injured people never get the compensation they deserve because they wait too long to seek help. Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. If you don’t file a lawsuit within two years of the date of your accident, you may not recover damages for your injury. For this reason, you should not hesitate to contact an attorney.
Who’s at Fault After a Car Accident?
In Georgia, the negligent party who caused the accident is the one held responsible for paying damages, usually through their insurance. However, most car accidents are caused by more than one party in some way. It’s not uncommon for an insurance company to claim that the injured party contributed to causing an accident by driving even a little bit above the speed limit or failing to put on a turn signal. In these cases, injured parties can still pursue compensation for what they have suffered under the “comparative fault” law. According to this law, the percentage of responsibility the injured party is found to be responsible for will also be deducted from their overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 10% at fault for an accident, your total compensation awarded to you will also be reduced by 10%.
Let Us Handle the Insurance Company
After a car accident, the other driver’s insurance company may contact you. They may request a recorded statement, or an insurance adjuster may ask you to send them your medical bills with the promise that they will be paid. You should understand that their main goal is to get you to accept as little as possible or avoid paying your claim at all. You need your own attorney to protect your best interests. We work to get the best settlement possible for victims of auto accidents in Greensboro.
