There are a variety of different factors responsible for car accidents, but some of the most common are entirely preventable when drivers take more care behind the wheel. These causes include:
Inclement weather and low visibility can compound these dangerous behaviors and make an accident even more likely. Drivers should be cautious of those around them, as other drivers on the road may be engaged in negligent behavior that could lead to a devastating crash.
The injuries a car accident victim sustains can range from minor to severe or even life-threatening. Even seemingly minor injuries may obscure much more serious problems that can emerge later. Some unfortunately common injuries include:
It’s vitally important to see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident. Your case for compensation for injuries cannot move forward without a doctor’s diagnosis. Even if you don’t think you were hurt, you might have hidden problems that could become life-threatening if left untreated.
It’s natural to have a lot of questions at this point. After your lawyer evaluates your case, they can answer any question you may have about the process. Here are answers to a few questions that clients commonly have about what to expect after a car accident.
There are a few things you can do to improve the likelihood that you get the right amount of compensation for your accident.
Your attorney can guide you through the process of filing an insurance claim and what to expect if it’s necessary to file a lawsuit.
The length of a car accident case can vary widely from a few months to several years. The duration depends on a number of factors, including your level of injury and the total value of damages in the crash. The amount of time it takes you to recover will be one important factor, because the amount of compensation depends partly on the cost of your medical bills. The more money that is at stake, the more likely the insurance company will try to fight the claim in court. An experienced accident attorney can ensure that you meet all insurance deadlines and that your claim moves forward as smoothly as possible.
Under Georgia’s comparative negligence law, the court will determine the level that you and other parties contributed to the accident, as a percentage of fault. The compensation awarded would then be reduced by that amount. For example, if you were found to be 10% at fault for the accident and the other party had 90% fault, and you were awarded $100,000 in damages, you would receive $90,000. You cannot recover any damages if you are more than 49% at fault for the crash.
The amount and form of compensation you receive after an accident will depend on several factors: the negligence of other drivers, whether you contributed to the accident, and how badly you were injured, among others. The types of compensation available may include:
You will need to work out an exact figure with your attorney. They can help you assess how the accident has affected your quality of life in addition to the economic damages you’ve suffered.
