If you are involved in a Car Accident

Being involved in a car wreck can be devastating. While the car accident alone and the injuries sustained by the accident are more than enough for a victim to handle, dealing with the insurance adjuster, and knowing your legal rights and responsibilities arising out of an accident, can make it even more difficult. It is advisable for all victims of an auto accident to hire an experienced Ware County personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

The Accident Scene

Evidence at an accident scene, such as road marks or witnesses memories, can fade away shortly after the accident. The pain of injuries sustained by the victim can also diminish over time. Photos are the best evidence of the accident scene; if you can take them after the accident it can help your case. There may also be a need to interview witnesses while memories of the accident are still fresh.

Accident Insurance

The insurance company for the driver who caused the accident are very experienced dealing with car accident cases. The insurance company and their defense attorneys will be gearing up to find every possible weakness in your case, from the moment they are notified about the accident. Usually, the insurance company will ask the injured party to give a record statement. You should always refuse any such request unless accompanied by your attorney. That statement serves one purpose to benefit the insurance company, not you.

Many insurance companies will ask the injured victim to provide them with a medical release, this is another bad idea. That release allows the insurance adjuster to obtain any of your medical records both before and after the accident, regardless of whether they are related to the accident. More often than not, the insurance companies of the at fault party will NOT pay for your medical expenses without being force too.

Insurance companies typically address property damage claims sooner after the accident than personal injury claims. Under Georgia law, the insurance company is required to pay the lesser of: the reasonable amounts to fix the vehicle, or, if the vehicle has been totaled in the accident, the market value of the vehicle at time of accident. Georgia law does not require the insurance company to pay the balance of any loan (liens) that you may have on the car.
