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 soon after my accident should I seek legal aid?
