These awards and our high-dollar recoveries are possible only because of our philosophy that clients should work directly with their attorneys, not paralegals. As one of our clients commented in a testimonial about Michael Gumprecht’s work on his car crash case, “He stayed on the case personally from start to finish, and the final settlement was large.”
Collecting Damages from Your Employer’s Insurance Company
Companies typically carry a higher value policy than individuals, who have a minimum legal requirement to carry $25,000 for each injured person, $50,000 for all injured people and $25,000 for property damage per accident. However, insurance companies also tend to work harder to defend their larger corporate policyholders against liability.
Common tactics to avoid paying you compensation might include saying that you were not using the car for work, so your personal insurance should pay. Conversely, the insurance agent may claim you were at fault for the accident and should be personally liable.
Our Georgia car accident lawyers aggressively pursue your rightful compensation under your employer’s insurance policy so you can recover the maximum possible damages. Our founding lawyer is knowledgeable about technology, skills that are vital to preserve evidence involving a corporation. For example, we may immediately bar your employer from destroying emails and text messages that may be relevant to your case.
You Can Sue a Third Party and Still Collect Workers’ Comp
Some employees believe they cannot sue for compensation if they have workers’ compensation benefits. This is only partly true.
You may be prohibited from suing your employer but have a valid third-party claim. The Gumprecht Law Firm can refer you to a qualified workers’ compensation attorney to discuss this aspect of your claim, and we can help you pursue your rightful third-party compensation.
Workers’ compensation benefits cover doctors’ bills and lost wages but may not cover the full extent of your damages. For example, you may have the right to damages for diminished earning capacity or disfigurement that might not be available through a workers’ compensation claim.
Examples of third-party claims include a lawsuit against:
- Another motorist who was driving recklessly when running into you
- A trucking corporation that employed a tired or unqualified driver
- A construction company that left debris on the highway
