You will personally meet with our attorneys, who will take a detailed history of what happened and how your injury occurred.
We will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case needed to prove fault, as well as discover the amount of all insurance available to compensate you for your loss.
We prepare each case from the beginning as if it were going to end in a jury trial, even if we are able to settle the case.
You should seek medical treatment right away and then contact an attorney. Your attorney will be able to complete the required investigation and send out all the notices required by law to protect your rights. You should not try to represent yourself. Even after paying an attorney, your net recovery will almost always be more than you would have received without an attorney.
You should always have liability coverage and “add-on” uninsured motorist coverage. Liability coverage protects others; uninsured motorist coverage protects you. Georgia law, however, does not let you purchase more insurance to protect yourself (UM) than you have purchased to protect others (liability). We typically suggest at least $100K/300K for liability and an equal amount of uninsured motorist coverage (make sure you get the “add-on” or “excess” variety).
Even if you didn’t cause the accident that hurt you, the medical bills are, unfortunately, your responsibility. When you file your claim against the at-fault driver, however, you will be able to recover those medical expenses, as well as any lost income, along with additional damages for your pain and suffering.
No. Initial consultations are always free. If you hire us and we pursue a claim on your behalf, we only receive a fee on the amount we are able to recover for you. If we don’t make a recovery, you pay nothing for our time.
Liability coverage protects others; UM coverage protects you. If the at-fault driver hurts you, but he has no insurance or an inadequate amount of insurance, your UM coverage can step in to cover your losses. You need it because most drivers are woefully underinsured.
Yes. The law applicable to premises liability cases is very difficult, and only an attorney experienced in these types of cases can properly advise you as to whether or not you have a case. In short, you have to be able to prove the owner had more knowledge of the hazard causing your injury that you had or could have had.
