The experience of being involved in a personal injury automobile accident can be emotionally and physically overwhelming for most people. Besides sustaining injuries and property damage to your vehicle or someone else’s property, you will most likely have to deal with insurance companies, medical bills, repair bills to your vehicle and possible loss of wages for missed work time.
An insurance company’s role is to look out for their best interests because they are in the business of making a profit by collecting insurance premiums from their customers and then paying out the least amount possible when someone makes a claim. It is difficult for most people to settle an insurance claim on their own because they are not trained to deal with the tactics used by insurance companies. Insurance companies take advantage of this fact. Insurance adjusters and insurance company staff attorneys on both sides of a claim are looking for ways to settle your claim that benefits them. This means they want to settle it quickly and for the least amount of money.
Since Georgia personal injury matters are complex and most people are inexperienced with dealing with them, a majority of people involved in personal injury accidents consult with a Georgia personal injury attorney. An initial consultation is complimentary and free of charge. The attorney can discuss your legal options and give you an idea about the types of damages you may be able to recover.
