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
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.
