In just about every case, the answer is yes, and you should do so quickly following your accident. The reason why is because you may not realize you need your own coverage until later, and if you do not file your accident claim with your insurance carrier early, it can deny coverage for untimely notice.

Conversely, Lyft appears to offer rides by friendly drivers in clean, comfortable cars for a reasonable price, all scheduled and transacted through a smartphone application.

The Federal Highway Administration calls intersections a "planned point of conflict." Perhaps that is a polite way of saying that safely crossing some intersections in Atlanta and other parts of Georgia come down to luck. Overcrowded streets and overloaded traffic patterns, along with decreasing levels of patience, distracted operators, and poor driving turn intersections into hazardous situations. The brutal reality is that regardless of how carefully you operate a vehicle, there are others around you who do not share your safety concerns. As a result, they drive carelessly and disregard the safety of other motorists, pedestrians, motorcycle riders, and pedal bicyclists.
Self-driving vehicle manufacturers promise the public that computer-aided driving will eradicate individual error and make the roads safe for all. The earliest iterations of self-driving vehicles have not been as reliable as promised. Operators of self-driving vehicles allow themselves to become complacent while behind the wheel and permit themselves to believe that the expensive self-driving vehicle will somehow take care of them in a crash. Their reliance on the artificial intelligence system that operates the car, better known as “AI,” has not proven to be infallible. Like all computer-based machines, autonomous vehicles can fail, thereby causing death or critical injuries to the driver and passengers in the self-driven vehicle. If an autonomous vehicle crashes as a consequence of malfunctioning computer systems that drive and steer the vehicle, then the manufacturing company of the autonomous automobile could be liable for the wrongful death or damages for personal injuries stemming from the defect.
Under Georgia Law Section 33-34-2(1), medical payments (MedPay) coverage, is an optional type of auto accident insurance no-fault coverage offered by Georgia insurance carriers. This means regardless of how the incident transpired, whether you or someone else is at fault for the accident and you have medical bills, you can claim Med Pay coverage for those medical bills up to the extent of the amount of coverage. MedPay limits may range as low as $1,000 or up to $50,000.00 to the insured.
"Stack" is a legal term of art. Stacking refers to any situation in which multiple coverages add together when the insured person has those coverages. Insurance Stacking does not include insurance coverages "in addition" to what is covering the defendant's vehicle. Stacking Insurance coverages pertains to the claimant's motor vehicle insurance coverages. For example, an individual may have a State Farm insurance policy on one car and another policy with Progressive on another vehicle. If the claimant has the same types of coverage on those two policies, our attorneys would want to argue for the claimant that their two insurance policies "stack."
