Get The Representation You Need From a Car Accident Lawyer
When you are the victim of a car accident in Atlanta, severe, debilitating and permanent injuries can turn your life upside down. Such injuries very often result in significant financial losses to the individuals involved as well as their families. However, if you have been injured in a car accident, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. These losses may include coverage of your medical bills, the amount of damages to your vehicle and other property and the amount of lost wages while you are in recovery. In some cases, victims can also be awarded additional compensation for emotional distress and even potential future income lost in situations where the injuries sustained in the accident are permanently disabling.
Contact the Hawkins Law Group if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident.
Those who lost a loved one or sustained a disabling injury have sustained a staggering emotional loss as well as the unplanned loss of an income. If you or someone you love sustained these sorts of serious injuries in a car accident caused by someone else’s carelessness, you should consider filing a Georgia car accident lawsuit, with the help of one of our experienced Atlanta car accident attorneys. Our Atlanta car accident attorneys have been trained to litigate against insurance defense law firms; we know how insurance companies think and make decisions. We promise to use that knowledge to prove the full extent of your injuries and get you all of the compensation you deserve.
OUR ATLANTA ACCIDENT ATTORNEY IS EXPERIENCED AND READY FOR YOUR CASE
It is generally agreed that the six most common causes of car accidents are 1) distracted drivers, 2) driver fatigue, 3) drunk driving, 4) speeding, 5) aggressive driving and 6) weather. Your accident doesn’t necessarily have to be caused by another driver to be considered a personal injury case. Some single-car accidents are due to negligence, and therefore Atlanta personal injury lawyers could represent your case. Such cases could include road conditions (standing water where road design should have prevented it; a large dip in the shoulder of the road) in which case the government may be liable for your claim. Other cases may involve automobile mechanical failures and the manufacturer may be held responsible.
But even if your case involves a basic two car collision, our Atlanta personal injury attorneys will protect you against the tactics of insurance companies that are designed to try to reach a settlement with an injured person as quickly as possible. Their purpose is to avoid responsibility for future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages that are likely to develop over time. This is a legal trap, one which our Atlanta car accident attorneys have thwarted time and time again.
When a person is injured in an auto accident, it very often takes months to completely assess the person's injuries. At that point, the person may need surgery or other extensive treatment such as chiropractic care. The injuries may leave the person permanently disabled even after corrective surgery. Therefore, the true value of a claim can only be assessed after a firm prognosis has been established by a physician.
AN ATLANTA ACCIDENT LAWYER WILL HELP GUIDE YOU THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES
There are other significant issues that develop for persons injured in an car accident. For instance, if your health insurance company pays for your medical bills they will very often seek to obtain reimbursement from your settlement with the other driver's insurance company. There are significant limitations on their right to obtain such reimbursement.
If you’re considering a lawsuit you should move fast to protect your access to the courts. Georgia state law gives you just two years from the date of the accident to file, and time may erase important evidence. Our initial free consultation is designed so that in one call you can find the best way to get the fair and full compensation you deserve for your injuries, vehicle damage, and lost property value.
