Lawyer Answering Your Personal Injury Questions

According to the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety, Carroll County has one of the highest motor vehicle fatality rates of all 159 counties in Georgia.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in any kind of accident, prompt action is crucial to your case. There are many issues that will determine whether you have a case and how much your claim is worth.

  • How do I find out who is at fault?
  • How much time do I have to file my claim?
  • What is my claim worth?
  • Is this a case of wrongful death?

Steps To Follow After A Car Accident

The first thing to do is write down everything you can remember about the accident. The details, location, time and conditions of the incident may fade quickly because physical trauma of any kind can make it hard to remember, and certain information could be the key to your case.

You should also write down the names and contact information of any potential witnesses and law enforcement or medical personnel on the scene. It is also very important to protect evidence such as your car, your clothing and any personal property that was damaged.

There are many critical elements to attend to, but it can be difficult, if not impossible, to make these efforts when you are injured. The only thing you should be doing is focusing on recovering from your injury. You need a skilled lawyer to represent you and get the compensation you need to cover your current and future medical needs, lost wages and future earning potential, in-home assistance and emotional issues such as anxiety or depression.

Some Facts About Motor Vehicle Wrecks

Research conducted by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control indicates that motor vehicle accidents resulting in fatalities occur more often in rural areas. Roads outside of cities may receive less attention because they are not traveled as frequently or they may be poorly lit or have signs that are hidden by trees or bushes. These are all factors that need to be assessed by an experienced attorney to determine what kind of claim you may have and who should be held responsible.
