Georgia Car Accident Attorneys
In 2013, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that over 5.6 million crashes occurred on U.S. roadways, with some 2.3 million people injured as a result of those crashes. If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you’re most likely concerned about recovering physically, missing work, and finding alternate transportation. Give yourself peace of mind by seeking out the knowledgeable, experienced car accident lawyers at Stemberger & Cummins, P.C. to deal with insurance companies and the at-fault driver on your behalf.
Important Information About Your Car Accident
Within 24 to 48 hours after you’re involved in a car accident, insurance companies will begin to investigate the accident. These investigations are designed to determine who’s at fault, which can have big implications if you are the victim of another driver’s mistake. Georgia’s comparative law statute says that if you’re deemed to be over 50% at fault for a crash, you may not be able to recover anything when you sue for your injuries. This is one very important reason to contact the best legal help you can find to ensure that all investigations and determinations of fault are fair and accurate, and to make sure that you’re compensated fairly for all of your losses.
Documenting Car Accident Facts and Expenses
After an automobile crash, you might not be thinking about how to prove what you deserve to be paid for your injuries and property damage. However, if insurance companies contest any of the expenses you claim as a result of your car accident, you will need to show evidence to force the best settlement or jury verdict.
Carefully track and document:
- Names and contact information of any witnesses who saw what happened, and whose testimony may be valuable in determining fault and/or damage.
- All expenses relating to your medical care, including costs of doctor visits and transportation to and from healthcare facilities.
- Any damage to your property and proof of its value–including any after-market modifications you made to the car and any personal items that were inside at the time of the crash and were lost.
- All lost wages incurred from missing work or paying for alternate transportation.
