Our DeKalb County motor vehicle accident attorneys often hear from crash victims who assume they can proceed without an attorney because liability is fairly clear. However, liability often is much less clear than it might appear at first blush even if an accident report indicates the other driver was at-fault, or the officer issues a traffic citation to the other motorist. While the prospect of an insurance company conceding liability and damages is not unprecedented, it is the exception rather than the rule. Even when an insurer indicates that its policyholder is liable for a loss, the insurer often will dispute the severity of injury and the proper amount of damages. When the insurance carrier tries to lowball the estimated damages associated with a claim, the knowledge, experience and perserverance of your Georgia personal injury attorney can significantly impact the recovery.
