Georgia Car Accident Lawyer
A car accident can change the course of your life forever. Every year more than 130,000 car accident injuries occur in Georgia. These injuries range from mild whiplash to serious, life-altering conditions such as paralysis. Beyond the physical pain and suffering, a serious car accident can result in extreme medical bills and prevent you from returning to work for a very long time, if not permanently.
While car accidents are common, they are often avoidable. Distracted drivers talking on cell phones, sending text messages or engaging in other irresponsible behaviors are the primary cause of motor vehicle crashes. Whether the cause of the crash is distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or some other form of negligence, it is almost expected that you will be involved in at least one car accident in your lifetime.
Injured? Talk to Us Before You Speak with the Insurance Company
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to the carelessness or negligence of another motorist, you should speak with a Georgia car accident lawyer immediately. Far too often, car accident victims make the mistake of talking with the insurance company before they consult with an attorney.
While a claims handler may contact you and tell you it is just to find out what happened, you should never speak with the insurance company or sign any forms or documents until you have spoken with your attorney. You need to keep in mind that when a motor vehicle accident happens, the insurance company is looking to pay out as little as possible. This means that every word that comes out of your mouth is treated as a puzzle piece that the insurance company can rearrange for its own benefit to hurt your case. Once the insurance company has the upper hand, it is likely to give you a low-ball settlement offer. This is why you need to speak with an automobile accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
The Gumprecht Law Firm is very familiar with tactics and maneuvers insurance companies will try to use to settle your case for the smallest amount possible. We also know just how much is at stake and are prepared to fight aggressively to help you recover the maximum financial compensation you deserve.
We Will Gather All of the Critical Evidence in Your Case
When you are hurt in a car accident, it is critical to have an attorney involved as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more complicated your case can become. Oftentimes the police department may not know what evidence is important to your case. This is why you need to have a skilled attorney at your side who knows how to properly investigate the crash, interview witnesses and preserve critical evidence.
You may not realize this, but your car is one of the most important pieces of physical evidence in your case. Before you release your vehicle to the insurance company, our firm will send a crash reconstructionist to properly investigate your car and take photographs so that evidence is properly preserved. We will also speak with law enforcement officers, medical professionals and key witnesses to increase the fair value of your potential settlement or verdict. When you hire our firm, you can be confident that we will gather all the necessary evidence to succeed on your behalf – our case results and testimonials speak to that fact.
