Motor Vehicle Accidents

A car accident can change your life in an instant. The right attorney can help you receive compensation for your injuries.

Between the physical injuries, emotional trauma, medical expenses, and inability to work, a car accident can change you and your family’s life in an instant. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a motor vehicle accident, it is critical that you find the right attorney because you will likely only have one opportunity to receive compensation for your injuries.

Make no mistake about it, insurance companies—including your own if you have uninsured motorist coverage—are not your friends. Their goal is to get rid of your claim for as little money as possible and as quickly as possible. Often, they will call victims immediately after an accident in an effort to lock them into statements with respect to the cause of the accident and extent of the injuries. In addition, they may try to quickly offer you compensation and disguise it as if they are trying to help you out.

In most instances, you will receive significantly more money if you hire the right attorney even after taking out attorney’s fees. First, insurance companies value cases based upon what they might lose at trial. Trials are complex and expensive, and the insurance company simply won’t pay you as much if they do not believe that you are capable of winning your trial. Having an attorney who handles personal injury matters and is capable and willing to take your case to trial is critical. Second, a good attorney will negotiate medical bills and other liens on the back end after resolving your case, which keeps more money in your pocket. If your health insurance paid for some or all of your medical bills, then they likely will have placed what is called a “lien” on your recovery. Your insurance company will then demand you pay it back for the costs of your treatment. In some cases, this can be tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, in many instances, an attorney can structure the terms of your settlement to take advantage of what is known as the “made-whole doctrine” in Georgia and significantly reduce the amount that an injured party has to pay back to their insurance company. For these reasons, in most cases it is financially advantageous to hire a personal injury attorney to help resolve your case.
