From relatively minor car accidents with minor injuries to devastating collisions with catastrophic injuries or deaths, from single vehicle accidents to multiple vehicle pile ups, from automobiles or hitting pedestrians or bicyclists to violent and deadly collisions involving one or more large commercial motor vehicles, we are experienced at handling all types of vehicular collisions. While the laws and regulations may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, there are two common denominators for the personal injury and wrongful deaths cases resulting from vehicular accidents that we handle: (1) that you or your loved one suffered bodily injury or were killed due to the fault of someone else, and (2) the sooner you retain us, the sooner we can spring into action and begin investigating the collision and preserving evidence and witness statements before it is too late. While Alabama and Georgia law may allow you up to two years to file a tort lawsuit over a vehicular collision, we know from our considerable experience that the sooner we can take action for you, the better it will be for your case. We also maintain our own vehicle storage facility for our clients’ vehicles that are involved in serious collisions and require further testing.
Also, beware that insurance adjusters are thoroughly trained to try to settle your injury claim as quickly and cheaply as possible, often before you know the full extent of your injury. Once you sign that release with the insurance company, your right to file a lawsuit or to seek compensation for additional injury or damages that you may not have been initially aware of is forever extinguished. Our Firm is fortunate to have attorneys and staff with prior experience working for the insurance companies, both in-house and as outside defense counsel, and that gives us a tremendous and fairly unique insight into the way that the insurance claims process really works. Even if you are dealing with an insurance adjuster who seems friendly and genuinely concerned about your injuries, please be aware that their duty is to protect the bottom line of the insurance company by paying you as little as possible. In contrast, if we represent you, our duty is to get you the best possible recovery that you may be entitled to under the law. We handle these types of cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that we do not get paid unless you do. Now who would you rather have on your side, watching out for you and your loved ones? So please give us a call. We do not charge you anything for a consultation, and we will fight for you with our considerable experience and resources.
