Griffin Lawyer Explains What Happens After an Accident

As an experienced Griffin Personal Injury Lawyer, I know that the insurance company is well trained to make you feel like the injury was your fault, or the doctor did excessive treatment, or you are not as injured as you say you are based on the damage to you car.  Sound familiar?  Failure to a good settlement on your case will lead to unpaid hospital bills, future bills, physical therapy you can’t pay for, and no money in your pocket.

In Griffin, Georgia, if you have been hurt in a traffic accident or a Griffin bike accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to recover compensation for medical costs, property loss, diminished value of your car, lost wages, pain and suffering, future medical bills, future pain and suffering, lost of enjoyment of life, and claims for loss of consortium.

You should be fully checked out by a doctor, because small injuries often develop into big ones. Even if you do not have any broken bones, cuts, lacerations or bruises, you may have unknown injuries that may lead to long term problems.

While the car insurance company may offer what you think is an good settlement offer, it is in your best interest to contact a Griffin Insurance Claims Attorney who will put your needs before the car insurance company interests.

Many insurance companies here in Georgia that would handle your Griffin personal injury claim now use computer programs to calculate the value of your damages. The calculations are low and they usually will not deviate from them. Sometimes, they even challenge your medical bills as excessive or unreasonable. Because of this, it is important to have an attorney on your side who is prepared to file suit and take your case to jury trial, if necessary.

If the other driver received a citation for drunk driving, DUI, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an injury accident, make sure to your attorney knows because punitive damages may be allowed.

If the person responsible for your injuries does not have car insurance coverage or their coverage does not sufficiently provide for your damages, your accident attorney may be entitled to collect uninsured motorist coverage.
