What Are You Entitled To After a Car Crash Injury?
Georgia car accident law generally allows personal injury victims (or families who have lost loved ones in a crash) to recover monetary damages from negligent individuals or companies responsible for their injuries. “Negligent individuals” can include individuals, public utilities, companies, public agencies, governmental bodies, other business organizations, and others, either acting alone or together with each other.
If you or a loved one was hurt in a car accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to “damages” usually in the form of financial compensation (money) to pay for medical costs and other costs associated with the accident.

Get the Money You Deserve
When a car wreck upends your life, you need a law firm that knows how to explore all avenues of compensation and vigorously pursue them on behalf of you or your loved one.
What is my claim worth?
Our aggressive Columbus lawyers pursue all types of damages that our clients are entitled to under Georgia law. This can include past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages and/or loss of earning capacity if your injury has prevented you from working or will prevent you from working in the future. In some cases, you could be entitled to money to cover property damage as well, including damage to vehicles and other personal property. Additional compensation could also apply based on other, less clearly measurable factors, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and more.
The value of a claim depends on numerous factors, including:
- the strength of legal liability
- the facts and circumstances of the incident,
- the strength of the applicable law and evidence
- the venue or locality where a claim must be brought
- the likability and credibility that witnesses would have to a jury
- the extent of a client’s injuries
- the costs of medical treatment- including past and future, impact on the quality of life
- the extent of pain and suffering
- whether someone is temporarily or permanently disabled
The amount of economic damages an auto accident injury victim might recover in the State of Georgia is specific to the circumstances and facts of the case. As such, each individual accident claim is unique. Predicting the exact dollar amount you and your family could receive from an accident claim is generally not possible at the outset of your traffic accident case. However, our lawyers are able to advise our clients on the range of predicted case values, once all of the evidence has been reviewed, we understand the extent and long-term effects of the injury or injuries, we have reviewed all medical expenses and records, and have evaluated the applicable Georgia law and the strength of the evidence.
Your case’s outcome may impact the rest of your life. That’s why we aim to maximize the money in your pocket – so you can prioritize your recovery.
Battling Big Insurance After an Auto Accident
Dealing with the physical, emotional and financial aftermath of a car crash is a lot to handle. During this difficult and confusing time, people injured in auto accidents must be careful to avoid damaging their legal claim for a settlement. Some people assume that they can deal directly with the insurance companies, but it’s important to remember that the job of the insurance company is to protect its own bottom line. To keep profits up, they try to pay injury victims as little as possible or even deny their claim altogether. The insurance company will have a team of investigators, experts and attorneys at their disposal whose goals are to pay you the absolute minimum they can. When you try to deal with insurance company adjusters on your own, without a lawyer, it could cost you valuable money in the long run.
