Auto Wrecks

         I have successfully represented many people injured in automobile accidents and traffic collisions in Georgia since 1973. Our office has the dedication and commitment to making sure we do everything possible to achieve the best maximum results in each client's case.

         If you drive or travel in an automobile, odds are you will be involved in at least one automobile accident in your lifetime. Protect yourself by observing the rules of the road and purchasing adequate auto insurance that includes uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. Keep in mind that you purchase liability insurance in case you injure or cause property damage to someone else, but you carry uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance coverage to protect yourself, your family and other occupants of your automobile. The statistics in Georgia show that almost 25% of the cars and drivers on the road today are uninsured.

         If you have been involved in a Georgia automobile accident or traffic collision you may be entitled to compensation by the negligent party's insurance company and/or your own if the negligent driver was uninsured or underinsured. Never proceed with a negligence claim without first obtaining legal advice. An experienced Georgia Auto Accident Lawyer knows the court system, can cut through insurance company red tape, and will make sure you are justly compensated for all current and future damages.

         I will promptly investigate a crash, determine fault, and seek to recover all legal damages. Regardless of who was at fault in the accident, victims should immediately seek the advice and counsel of an experienced attorney to protect their legal rights. Within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost, and witnesses may become hard to find.

Things you should do after an auto accident or car crash:

  • Insist that the police be called, an accident report be completed and filed with the appropriate local law enforcement agency.
  • Obtain the name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number and drivers license number of any and all other persons involved in the accident
  • Also get the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses
  • Photograph the accident scene, including all vehicles involved (before repairing) and any visible injuries (cuts, bruises).
  • Talk to no one about the accident or injuries other than your doctor or lawyer, especially not an insurance adjuster.
  • Sign nothing without consulting a lawyer. Truthful statements made in an attempt to be helpful can easily be misinterpreted and turned against you
  • Seek medical attention and tell your physician or surgeon exactly how the injury occurred and describe all symptoms and complaints.
  • Be sure to report memory problems, confusion or disorientation, however minor these things may seem at the time.
