Everyday, millions of people in the United States get into their cars to go to work and trust that other drivers on the road are abiding by all of the applicable laws of their state. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of Americans get into car wrecks and are injured every year due to the negligence of others. If you have been injured in a car accident, you have to make the decision on whether or not you will need to get a lawyer. The simple answer to this questions is Yes. You should get a lawyer to represent your best interest, which is compensating you for your injuries and your loss.
First of all, keep in mind that auto accident injury cases are one of the most common types of personal injury claims in Georgia. Both the driver and passengers of an accident can be entitled to compensation. If you are like most of the victims in Georgia, you have never dealt with a car accident injury claim and may not be sure how to handle the situation. Georgia injury lawyers have experience handling accident claims. They deal with insurance companies every day negotiating claims against uninsured drivers, claims for serious injuries (including medical expenses) and for loss of income.
Most lawyers will tell you not to even talk to the insurance company. Insurance companies are looking out for their best interest, not yours. They want to get your claim taken care of as soon as possible and they will do their best to pay you as little as possible. Their end of the year profits rely on low paid claims. Georgia injury lawyers work the complete opposite end of the spectrum. At the end of the accident case, they only get paid if you get paid. Because of this, they will work diligently to stand up for your rights and the compensation you deserve.
