No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
If you have been injured in a car accident in Georgia, recovering your losses is going to be a challenge. There is simply no other way to put it. The insurance companies are going to deny liability; and, when you hire a Macon car accident lawyer to fight back, they are going to do everything they can to prevent you from recovering just compensation.
As a result, the more you know about your claim, the better off you will be. Here are six fast facts about seeking financial compensation after a car accident in Georgia:
No matter what the insurance companies tell you, if the other driver was at fault in the accident, you are entitled to financial compensation. Do not let them convince you otherwise, and do not let them talk you out of fully pursuing your claim.
While most car accident cases involve auto insurance claims, many accident victims will have other claims as well. Was there an issue with the road? Was your (or the other driver’s) car defective? If so, you may have what is known as a “third-party” claim for liability.
Auto insurance companies routinely blame accident victims for causing their own injuries. Once again, you must not fall for their tactics. Unless your Macon car accident lawyer tells you otherwise, you should proceed as though you are entitled to a full financial recovery.
The insurance companies may use other tactics to try to deny your claim as well – and these tactics may or may not be legal under Georgia’s bad-faith insurance laws. From ignoring key evidence to making unreasonably low settlement offers, you must be prepared to deal with a variety of issues.
Under Georgia law, car accident victims can recover financial compensation for the financial and non-financial effects of their injuries. Before you settle, you must be certain that the settlement offer reflects full and fair compensation for all of your accident-related losses.
