1) How Long Will a Car Accident Case Take?
If you’ve got a serious injury case, your case can take a while. The more serious your injuries, the longer the case, oftentimes. One thing that takes time in a personal injury case is determining what your damages are. Damages are everything from your pain and suffering to the reasonable value of your past and future medical expenses and the reasonable value of your wage loss.
2) What if the Driver That Hit Me Doesn’t Have Insurance?
Finding insurance is mission critical when you have serious injuries. Sometimes in accidents, an accident victim discovers that the at-fault driver that injured them does not have any insurance. In these cases, you need to see if you have uninsured motorist insurance, and you need to make sure you’ve put your own insurance carrier on notice of a bodily injury claim early in the case. You also need to ensure that there’s not another liability policy out there that will cover the at-fault driver. In some scenarios, the at-fault driver may have a commercial general liability policy through their employer, if they are driving a company vehicle when they injure you. The at-fault driver may also be covered by a family member’s liability insurance.
Your attorney can help you determine if you have found all of the insurance coverage that’s out there. Filing your lawsuit can give you access to the subpoenas and civil discovery you need to start uncovering this information.
3) Should I Speak to an Insurance Adjuster After a Car Accident?
When people are injured in car crashes in Georgia, the insurance company often asks you for a recorded statement. While you will want to put the insurers on notice, you want to stay away from giving recorded statements unless you have an attorney who can participate in the statement. You don’t really know what can be particularly damaging about your case. The biggest fight in many car accident cases is over damages, and your damages are not always clear-cut. If the insurance carrier can get you on a recorded statement minimizing your injuries. Do not give a recorded statement until you’re represented by an attorney who can give you guidance and participate in any statement.
4) What Should I Do After Being Injured in a Car Accident?
A car accident can be a very stressful experience. One of the most important things you can do after a car crash is to consult with an experienced attorney. This should be someone’s advice and judgment that you can trust. Your attorney will keep you notified of the goings-on of your case. If not, you have hired the wrong attorney.
