This post concludes and recaps our series on the handling of Atlanta, Georgia car accident cases. We felt it was necessary to write on this topic as many individuals do not know how to proceed after they have been injured by the negligence of another. Such victims may find that they limit their ability to recover damages due to a failure to take the appropriate steps. The goal of our recent articles has been to provide information which will help people to fully understand their options. It has also been our goal to provide information which will help people to make an informed decision when they are selecting a personal injury lawyer. If you require assistance then contact our office today to speak with an attorney.
We have addressed several topics over our recent articles. Issues which we have analyzed include:
- What to do immediately after a car accident
- How comparative fault impacts Georgia auto wrecks
- Discovery in car accident cases
- The need for expert witnesses in such matters
- Attending trial after a car accident
There are several reasons why it is important for the victims of accidents to understand these topics. First, if one does not seek immediate care after an accident then they open themselves up to claims that the injuries were not the result of the wreck. This is why seeking care is just one of several steps which must be immediately taken. Second, many make the mistake of thinking that they cannot recover for their injuries if they were partially to blame for the incident. Georgia’s comparative fault laws protect those who were less negligent than the other party. Third, discovery can be crucial to establishing issues related to fault, such as whether the defendant was using their cell phone while driving. Fourth, experts may be necessary to establish issues related to damages, liability, and more. Finally, knowing what to expect from the trial process will help to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible.
One point we have stressed through each of these articles is that you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible if you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident. Counsel will immediately begin dealing with the insurance companies so that you may focus on the important business of getting healthy. An experienced representative will also work to protect your rights throughout the process and this, in turn, will maximize your chances of recovery.
