Do I need a lawyer?

You are not required to hire attorneys if you are in an accident in Georgia. However, doing so can greatly increase your chances of filing a successful claim. If the defendant has his or her own counsel, it is of the utmost importance that you retain an experienced lawyer. Additionally, the law can be complicated and a knowledgeable auto accident attorney in Atlanta can explain the process to you in an easy-to-understand manner.

Can an attorney get me compensation?

An attorney can greatly improve your chances of receiving compensation by gathering evidence and helping you to file a claim. However, ultimately, whether you receive compensation depends on the extent of your injuries and whether you are able to prove that the defendant is liable.

My insurance company offered me a settlement, should I accept it?

Any time you are in an accident, never sign or settle anything without speaking to a lawyer. Insurance companies may offer you a low-ball settlement to resolve your case quickly and save money. An injury attorney can help your obtain a fair settlement.

How do I know if I have a strong case?

How soon after my accident should I seek legal aid?

Immediately after your accident, you should contact a lawyer. While according to the statute of limitations you have two years from the time of your injury to take action, delaying will only cause you and other witnesses to forget important details about your case.
