Frequently Asked Questions

How is fault assessed?

From teenage drivers to truck drivers falling asleep at the wheel, the underlying causes of roadway collisions varies immensely. However, when you are the victim of another driver’s carelessness, that driver may be liable to you for the damages you have incurred. In other words, when you are involved in an accident caused by someone else, you are entitled to a financial recovery. And in Georgia, when you have been injured in a car wreck, you may be entitled to a financial recovery even if you or your loved one were partially at fault. We offer free consultations, and we will determine who is at fault and what recovery is available.

What are my damages?

In Georgia, money damages encompass lost wages, medical bills, any pain and suffering, and even loss of consortium to cover the losses incurred by a spouse. Insurance companies will often ask for reimbursement for money they paid towards recovery after the accident. Just as often, these insurance companies are not entitled to this reimbursement. Contact us to learn more.

What sort of time frame am I looking at?

    Depending on the nature of your case, you may have a very limited window of opportunity to file a suit. For example, in a situation involving a governmental entity, you may have as little as six months to file. While the typical personal injury case has a two (2) year statute of limitation, other cases vary greatly in timing. Also, witnesses and evidence may become more difficult to track down as time goes by. Accordingly, it is very important not to delay. If you or a loved one has been injured, call our office right away so that we can evaluate your case and make sure you don’t miss your opportunity for a recovery.
